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.

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 Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-HOP-18-013, "Recurring Traffic Bottlenecks: A Primer, Focus on Low-Cost Operational Improvements".
