This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 07/27/22. Attendees of the previously offered presentation, RV-W072722, will not receive CEU for attending the 11/03/2022 presentation.
When we think of highway design, the first element that comes to mind is speed. The goal seems simple, the faster we move goods and vehicles across our highways the better. This simple goal misses one key element. It misses context. By focusing on one single element of mobility, the goal misses the context in which a highway operates. Thus, it is important that practitioners in the A/E/C industry take into account the surrounding community when designing highways and then deliver adequate speed management controls. In this course, practitioners within the A/E/C industry will learn strategies that may be used to achieve desired operating speeds across all context classifications. The strategies described in this course are national best practices for low-speed facilities and are allowable on arterials and collectors when consistent with the context classification of the roadway.
Note: This is a live webinar delivered via GoToWebinar. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar. If you have not received your instructions for any reason please call Client Support (1-866-546-1212) the day of the event. Webinars are live and interactive. Students will have the ability to directly interact with and ask questions of the presenter.
Course Objectives
  • Describe how each of the three speed management concepts work to regulate vehicular traveling speeds in order to protect the health and welfare of the public
  • Enumerate at least 3 out of the 6 elements that need to be considered in the selection of a speed management strategy to improve vehicular safety on highways
  • Identify the two design features that should be avoided when on-street parking is used as a speed management strategy
  • Give a specific context classification and a target speed, and select at least one speed management strategy to improve the welfare of the community
