Maintaining Pedestrian Facilities for Enhanced Safety
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides guidance for maintaining pedestrian facilities with the primary goal of increasing safety and mobility.
Although there are guidelines and standards to aid in the design of pedestrian facilities, it can be difficult to adequately maintain facilities once they are in place, so they remain safe and accessible. Aside from unavailable federal funding for maintenance activities, there are also liability consequences related to poor, inadequate, or infrequent inspection and maintenance of pedestrian facilities.
The purpose of this presentation therefore is to identify effective and exceptional practices, along with barriers for pedestrian facility maintenance: what works and what does not work based on experience from state and local agencies.
This 4 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to any agency or organization that builds and maintains pedestrian facilities. This includes government bodies at the state, county or local level, but it may also include homeowners’ associations, private land management organizations and other groups.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the types of pedestrian facilities
- Understanding the benefits of pedestrian facility maintenance
- Learning about common maintenance issues
- Familiarizing with inspection, accessibility, compliance, plans, and policies
- Learning about maintenance measures for different categories of facilities (sidewalks, paths, and curb ramps).
- Familiarizing with construction techniques that lessen the maintenance of sidewalks and paths
Once you finish watching the PDH interactive presentation, you will be redirected to your account to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this interactive presentation.
