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

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

  • Considering the various constraints for constructing a roundabout
  • Determining a preliminary lane configuration and selecting a roundabout category based on capacity requirements
  • Performing the analysis appropriate to the roundabout selection category
  • Determining the space requirements and feasibility
  • Understanding the traffic operations at roundabouts
  • Obtaining data required to evaluate the performance of a roundabout
  • Estimating the capacity of the various roundabout configurations
  • Applying measures of effectiveness determine the performance of a roundabout and estimating these measures
  • Familiarizing with the different computer software packages available to implement the capacity and performance analysis procedures

COURSE TITLE: Impact of Exempt Vehicles on HOV Lanes
COURSE NO: C05-012
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Impact of Exempt Vehicles on HOV Lanes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents information on defining high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane capacity, options for using available HOV lane capacity, and analyzing HOV exemption policies. It examines the potential impact of certain exempt vehicles on the operation of high-occupancy vehicles (HOV) facilities. The possible exempt vehicles examined in this course include environmentally friendly vehicles, and law enforcement, emergency services, and designated public transportation vehicles. It also presents the experience with the use of HOV lanes by these types of exempt vehicles. Finally, it examines the potential issues and approaches for allowing exempt vehicles to use HOV lanes.

 

Traffic congestion continues to be a major issue in metropolitan areas throughout the country. The agencies responsible for the surface transportation system in these regions use a variety of approaches and techniques to address concerns relating to traffic congestion, mobility, and air quality. The use of HOV facilities represents one approach in use or being considered in many urban areas.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who will be considering HOV exemption policies as well as monitoring and evaluating the use of HOV lanes by exempt vehicles.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about HOV facilities and HOV lane capacities
  • Evaluating options for using HOV lane capacities
