FHWA study on bicycle traffic signals needs your help

The Turner-Fairbanks Highway Research Center is looking for bicyclists to help with a study on bicycle signals and signs. Participants in the study will be paid. The Center conducts transportation research and was in the news last year when President Obama toured the facility and sat in the driving simulator used for testing new road designs and signage. If you have a couple of hours to participate in the study, contact the Center at 202-493-3335 or email

According to the study team, "We usually offer a wide range of times throughout the day and sometimes on Saturdays as well. We should be starting the project this upcoming Wednesday October 21st and will continue it into November."

The Center is located on Georgetown Pike adjacent to the CIA. It is possible to bike there via McLean to the paved shoulder on Route 123 to Chain Bridge Rd to Georgetown Pike.

From FHWA:
We are currently researching the design and implementation of bicycle traffic signals and signs intended to improve the safety of the bicyclist when at an intersection.

We really value your opinion as a bicyclist.
