COURSE TITLE: Ramp Management Strategies
COURSE NO: C04-010
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Ramp Management Strategies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces and describes four commonly used strategies that may be implemented to better manage traffic on and adjacent to freeway ramps. In doing so, this course lays the foundation from which practitioners may successfully develop, select, operate and maintain strategies and plans.

 

These four strategies give agencies the ability to control the rate that traffic is allowed to enter the freeway facility; temporarily or permanently restrict traffic flow, provide priority to special vehicle uses, and implement treatments at the ramp-arterial terminal to improve traffic operations on and along ramps and adjacent arterials. For each strategy, a number of associated techniques and approaches exist, some of which will prove to be better than others at fulfilling agency goals and objectives.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding in ramp management strategies.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the four basic strategies used to manage traffic on freeway entrance and exit ramps
  • Understanding of what each ramp management strategy entails and the benefits and impacts of implementing each
  • Identifying where ramp metering strategies have been applied and the results that strategies produced
  • Understanding the unique issues associated with each strategy and why these issues are important

COURSE TITLE: Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
COURSE NO: C06-018
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
Course Highlights

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.
Learning Objectives

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)

COURSE TITLE: Signal Timing Optimization
COURSE NO: C05-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Signal Timing Optimization
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course examines various cost-effective techniques that can be used to generate good signal timing plans that can be employed when there are insufficient financial resources to generate the plans using conventional techniques. This course develops a "tool box" of procedures and provides examples of how the tool box can be used when there is a moderate signal timing budget, when there is a modest signal timing budget, and when there is a minimum signal timing budget.

 

The conventional approach to signal timing optimization and field deployment requires current traffic flow data, experience with optimization models, familiarity with the signal controller hardware, and knowledge of field operations including signal timing fine-tuning. Developing new signal timing parameters for efficient traffic flow is a time-consuming and expensive undertaking.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers and planners, administrators, managers, and technicians who are trying to maintain the best possible signal timing settings and adjustments to meet the ever-increasing traffic demands with less than optimal budgets.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Identifying system intersections
  • Collecting and organizing existing data
  • Conducting a site survey
  • Obtaining turning movement data
  • Calculating local timing parameters
  • Identifying signal groupings
  • Calculating coordination parameters
  • Installing and evaluating new plans
