The Low-Cost Safety Improvements Online Workshop is designed to provide participants with the tools and knowledge to help evaluate safety issues and select appropriate low-cost safety improvements. It will be over a four-day period with two hours of instruction per day. The Florida LTAP Center is pleased to partner with the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Resource Center to bring you this virtual workshop series.
This course provides a comprehensive presentation of low-cost, ready-to-use improvements that enhance the safety of roads and highways. It additionally provides background on the crash mitigation process including both conventional and systemic network screening. Various data sources to evaluate roadway safety are also discussed. A synthesis of countermeasures and their associated crash reduction factors as identified on either the CMF Clearinghouse or other relevant publications will be covered. Information on using the CMF Clearinghouse and how to evaluate various CMFs are discussed. Countermeasures for specific areas including roadway segments and curves, roadsides, unsignalized intersections, and signalized intersections are covered. Through exercises, participants will learn how to analyze highway safety situations and apply appropriate countermeasures to those situations.
This workshop is aimed primarily at practicing traffic and safety engineers and highway decision makers from local and state agencies, design consultants, and FHWA field offices.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Summarize some data that defines roadway safety in the United States
- Discuss methods to identify locations of interest for safety improvement
- Describe/discuss some potential LCSIs for:
- Roadway Segments & Curves
- Unsignalized Intersections
- Signalized Intersections
