      Webinar: Considering Traffic-Related Air Pollution in Bicycle Route Planning

      Local, regional, and state agencies across the nation are making efforts to increase bicycle infrastructure. The typical planning process for locating new bicycle infrastructure considers a multitude of factors, such as available right-of-way, vehicular traffic volumes, safety concerns, among others. However, exposure to traffic-related air pollution is rarely considered but should be. Bicyclists are directly exposed to vehicular exhaust, which has been proven to contribute to a wide range of health problems such as lung and heart diseases. New research from the University of California, Riverside (UC Riverside), provides insight on how the inclusion of traffic-related air pollution can change the outcome of bicycle route planning.  Please join us for this upcoming webinar to learn more about findings from this research and implications for bicycle route planning as well as future directions for this work. Speakers: Kanok Boribsoonsomsin, Associate Research Engineer, Center for Environmental Research and Technology, University of California, Riverside Ji Luo, Assistant Specialist, Center for Environmental Research and Technology, University of California, Riverside Guest Respondents: Nathan Mustafa, Senior Traffic Engineer and Bicycle Coordinator, City of Riverside  Bill Nesper, Executive Director, The League of American Bicyclists
