A.M. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award & City of Ottawa’s Protected Intersection Design Guide
The National Capital Section (NCS) is excited to host a free lunchtime webinar on April 20 to present the annual A.M. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award and conduct a presentation on City of Ottawa’s Protected Intersection Design Guide.
The recipient of this year’s A.M. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award is Sean Rathwell from Dillon Consulting. Following the presentation of the award, a webinar will be delivered about Ottawa’s latest intersection designs. The webinar will provide a brief summary of protected intersections, why they are implemented, and a history of their use in Ottawa. It will then explore Ottawa’s new Protected Intersection Design Guide including discussion on protected corner types and selection, accessibility considerations, and new functional guidance including minimum cycle track radii, corner (truck) aprons, centreline hardening, and signalization measures. Attendees are welcome to ask questions or discuss challenges they have encountered while using the Guide.
