COURSE TITLE: Roadway Cross-Sections
COURSE NO: C05-020
COURSE PROVIDER: Gregory Taylor, P.E.
Roadway Cross-Sections
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course focuses on the geometric design of cross-sections for modern roads and highways.

 

The AASHTO "Green Book" defines a roadway cross-section as "a vertical section of the ground and roadway at right angles to the centerline of the roadway, including all elements of a highway or street from right-of-way line". Along with the vertical alignment (grades and vertical curves) and horizontal alignment (tangents and curves), the roadway cross-section (lanes and shoulders, curbs, medians, roadside slopes and ditches, as well as sidewalks) helps to present a three-dimensional roadway model. Its ultimate goal is to provide a safe, smooth-flowing facility that is crash-free.

 

The 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic or transportation engineers and designers interested in learning about the principles to be considered when selecting and designing roadway cross-sections.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Typical roadway cross-section elements
  • Components of the traveled way
  • Lane widths
  • Characteristics of roadway shoulders
  • Principles of roadside design
  • Curb categories and usage
  • Rumble strips
  • Design and application of on-street parking
  • Typical applications for drainage channels
  • Various types of traffic barriers
  • Noise reduction design
  • Design and application of pedestrian facilities
  • Tunnel design
  • Types of bus turnouts
  • Bicycle facilities
  • Clear zone concept
  • Park-and-Ride facilities
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled "Roadway Cross-Sections". This course document is based exclusively on Chapter 4, Cross-Section Elements of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) publication, "A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets" (also known as the "Green Book").

COURSE TITLE: Roadway Horizontal Alignment
COURSE NO: C04-034
COURSE PROVIDER: Gregory Taylor, P.E.
Roadway Horizontal Alignment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course focuses on the geometric design of horizontal alignments for modern roads and highways. In today's environment, designers must do more than apply design standards and criteria to "solve" a problem. They must understand how various roadway elements contribute to safety and facility operation, including the horizontal alignment.

 

The roadway horizontal alignment is a series of horizontal tangents (straight roadway sections), circular curves, and spiral transitions. It shows the proposed roadway location in relation to the existing terrain and adjacent land conditions. Together with the vertical alignment (grades and vertical curves) and roadway cross-sections (lanes, shoulders, curbs, medians, roadside slopes, ditches and sidewalks), the horizontal alignment (tangents and curves) helps to provide a three-dimensional roadway layout.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to traffic or transportation engineers interested in learning about the principles to be considered when selecting and designing roadway horizontal alignments. The contents of this document are intended to serve as guidance and not as an absolute standard or rule.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about sight distance
    • Stopping
    • Decision
    • Passing
    • Intersection
  • Understanding design considerations
    • Cross slopes
    • Radii
    • Grades
  • Learning about horizontal curves
    • Compound
    • Spiral
  • Coordinating Horizontal & Vertical Curves
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled "Roadway Horizontal Alignments". This course document is based exclusively on Chapter 3 (Section 3.3 Horizontal Alignment) of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) publication, "A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets" (also known as the "Green Book").

COURSE TITLE: Roadway Vertical Alignments
COURSE NO: C04-031
COURSE PROVIDER: Gregory Taylor, P.E.
Roadway Vertical Alignments
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course focuses on the geometric design of vertical alignments for modern roads and highways.

 

Roadway vertical alignments are a combination of various parabolic curves and connecting tangent grades. Along with the roadway cross section (lanes, shoulders, curbs, medians, roadside slopes, ditches and sidewalks) and horizontal alignment (tangents and curves), the vertical alignment (grades and vertical curves) helps provide a three-dimensional roadway model. Its ultimate goal is to provide a safe, smooth-flowing facility that is crash-free.

 

In today's environment, designers must do more than apply design standards and criteria to 'solve' a problem. They must understand how various roadway elements contribute to safety and facility operation, including the vertical profile.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to traffic or transportation engineers interested in learning about the principles to be considered when designing roadway vertical alignments.
