COURSE TITLE: Effects of Traffic Calming Measures on Pedestrians and Motorists
COURSE NO: C02-030
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Effects of Traffic Calming Measures on Pedestrians and Motorists
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course summarizes past research on speed humps, bulbouts, and roadway narrowing as well as findings from a new evaluation of bulbouts, raised crosswalks and intersections, refuge islands, and speed humps in eight communities.

 

Continued growth and decentralization throughout the United States have increased the number of cars on streets and highways. High traffic volumes and speeds, especially on residential streets, reduce the quality of life for residents because of concerns about safety, noise, and pollution. As a result, many neighborhood residents and local officials have expressed interest in undertaking traffic calming as a means of decreasing the cars' dominance.

 

Traffic calming encompasses a series of physical treatments that are meant to lower vehicle speeds and volumes by creating the visual impression that certain streets are not intended for high-speed or cut-through traffic. Thus, traffic calming can improve safety for pedestrians and reduce noise and pollution levels. Examples of these measures include bulbouts, speed humps, chicanes, and traffic circles.

 

This 2 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 calming measures.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the various traffic calming measures
  • Understanding the effects of bulbouts, raised crosswalks, raised intersections and refuge islands
  • Learning the various measures of effectiveness

COURSE TITLE: Managed Freeway Lanes
COURSE NO: C04-011
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Managed Freeway Lanes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes operating managed lane projects through a case study approach, highlighting best practices of the projects and the lessons learned. It also presents emerging issues and knowledge gaps. The intent of this course is to provide a cross-cutting study of the issues and experiences of various agencies as managed lane projects are implemented and policies are drafted.

 

Increasing traffic congestion in the major metropolitan areas is costing billions of dollars each year in lost productivity, wasted fuel, increasing air pollution and hours of delay. Adding new general-purpose lanes is increasingly difficult because of factors such as construction costs, limited right-of-way, environmental and societal concerns. As a result, agencies are looking for solutions to improve the flow of traffic on existing facilities.

 

One concept being considered is that of "managed lanes". Managed lanes employ various strategies to improve flow and maximize the efficiency of the freeway system. Common types of managed lanes include high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, value priced lanes, or exclusive or special use lanes.

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Roundabouts
COURSE NO: C01-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Introduction to Roundabouts
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course distinguishes modern roundabouts from older style traffic circles both in how they operate and in how they are designed. It also defines the six basic types of roundabouts:

  • Mini-roundabouts
  • Urban compact roundabouts
  • Urban single-lane roundabouts
  • Urban double-lane roundabouts
  • Rural single-lane roundabouts
  • Rural double-lane roundabouts

 

Traffic circles have been part of the transportation system in the United States since 1905 when the Columbus Circle designed by William Phelps Eno opened in New York City. The prevailing designs enabled high-speed merging and weaving of vehicles, as priority was given to entering vehicles, resulting in congestion and frequent collisions.

 

In 1966, the United Kingdom adopted a mandatory “give-way” rule at all circular intersections, which required entering traffic to give way, or yield, to circulating traffic. In addition, smaller circular intersections were proposed that required adequate horizontal curvature of vehicle paths to achieve slower entry and circulating speeds. These changes improved the safety characteristics of the circular intersections by reducing the number and particularly the severity of collisions.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detailed designers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the design and construction of roundabouts.

COURSE TITLE: Roundabout Geometric Design
COURSE NO: C04-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Roundabout Geometric Design
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the fundamental design principles common among all roundabout types. This course also presents detailed design considerations specific to multilane roundabouts, rural roundabouts, and mini-roundabouts.

 

Designing the geometry of a roundabout involves choosing between trade-offs of safety and capacity. Roundabouts operate most safely when their geometry forces traffic to enter and circulate at slow speeds. Horizontal curvature and narrow pavement widths are used to produce this reduced-speed environment. Conversely, the capacity of roundabouts is negatively affected by these low-speed design elements. As the widths and radii of entry and circulatory roadways are reduced, the capacity of the roundabout is also reduced.

 

Furthermore, many of the geometric parameters are governed by the maneuvering requirements of the largest vehicles expected to travel through the intersection. Thus, designing a roundabout is a process of determining the optimal balance between safety provisions, operational performance, and large vehicle accommodation.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, managers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the geometric design of roundabouts.

COURSE TITLE: Roundabout Planning and Operation
COURSE NO: C05-011
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Roundabout Planning and Operation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the factors that lead up to the decision to construct a roundabout with an approximate configuration at a specific location, preceding the detailed analysis and design of a roundabout. By confirming that there is good reason to believe that roundabout construction is feasible and that a roundabout offers a sensible method of accommodating the traffic demand, these planning activities make unnecessary the expenditure of effort required subsequently.

 

This course also presents methods for analyzing the operation of an existing or planned roundabout. These methods allow a transportation analyst to assess the operational performance of a facility, given information about the usage of the facility and its geometric design elements. An operational analysis produces two kinds of estimates: (1) the capacity of a facility, i.e., the ability of the facility to accommodate various streams of users, and (2) the level of performance, often measured in terms of one or more measures of effectiveness, such as delay and queues.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detailed designers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the planning and operation of roundabouts.

Learning Objectives
