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
  • Understanding the benefits of the traffic calming measures on pedestrians and motorists

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.

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.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who are involved with developing and operating managed lane facilities in freeway corridors and are interested in gaining a basic understanding of the issues associated with developing managed lane projects.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding managed lanes
  • Planning and implementing managed lanes
  • Considering operational and design issues
  • Understanding the effects of managed lanes over the facility life on its implementation

COURSE TITLE: Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
COURSE NO: C02-013
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.

 

The delays arising from traffic congestion are a fact of life in many communities. According to a February 2007 Harris Poll, just over one-third (37 percent) cite traffic congestion as a serious problem in the community, while one-quarter say traffic congestion is a serious problem that is not being addressed. Close to half of all congestion happens day after day at the same time and location. Much of this recurring congestion is due to physical bottlenecks - specific points on the highway system where traffic flow is restricted.

 

While many of the Nation's bottlenecks can best be addressed through costly major construction projects, there is also significant opportunity for the application of operational and low-cost infrastructure solutions to bring about relief in the short term.

 

This 2 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 the problem of congestion
  • Learning the different strategies to resolve the congestion
  • Knowing the USDOT Congestion Initiative
  • Identifying, assessing and addressing bottlenecks
  • Incorporating quick-fix bottleneck solutions into the Congestion Initiative
  • Understanding how agencies are dealing with bottlenecks (case studies)
