Traffic Control Concepts for Urban and Suburban Streets
This online engineering PDH course discusses traffic control concepts for urban and suburban streets. In planning and designing a traffic signal control system, one must first understand the applicable operational concepts related to signalized intersection control and signal-related special control. A number of commonly used proprietary traffic systems and simulations are discussed in this chapter. These discussions provide illustrations of the technology.
This 7 PDH online course is applicable to transportation planners, traffic engineers, agency personnel as well as design and construction personnel involved with the development, review, approval, implementation, and assessment of traffic control planning, designs and implementation.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the various control variables
- Learning the sampling, filtering and smoothing techniques
- Knowledge of traffic signal timing parameters and signal phasing
- Dealing with isolated intersections
- Understanding arterial and network control and other special controls
- Understanding the benefits and measures of effectiveness
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 3, "Traffic Control Concepts - Urban and Suburban Streets" of the Federal Highway Administration Publication, FHWA-HOP-06-006, "Traffic Control Systems Handbook".
