Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
This online engineering PDH course describes bottlenecks and explores near-term operational and low-cost construction opportunities to correct them.
Delays due to traffic congestion seem like an unavoidable, frustrating fact of life. Or are they—unavoidable, that is? This course focuses on traffic congestion caused by bottlenecks—which are specific locations on the highway system where the physical layout of the roadway routinely cannot process the traffic that wants to use it and results in localized, recurring congestion.
By focusing on relieving localized, recurring congestion at bottlenecks, this primer can help agencies identify the right fix for a particular bottleneck. What’s more, the right fix for a localized, recurring bottleneck is usually spot-specific, more effective, less expensive, and faster to implement than building a new facility.
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers and planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding in traffic bottlenecks operational improvements.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding bottlenecks and congestion
- Learning about the different strategies of resolving congestion
- Knowing how to structure a localized bottleneck program
- Identifying, assessing and addressing bottlenecks
- Incorporating quick-fix bottleneck solutions into the Congestion Initiative
- Understanding how agencies are dealing with bottlenecks (case studies)
