Traffic Engineering Fundamentals Part 3 of 3

September 2 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This training is a high-level overview of the fundamental concepts of traffic engineering and is thus ideal for people that are just starting to work in the field, or for people that maybe work in related fields that want to learn the lingo of traffic engineering. One of the things that we aim to accomplish in the workshop is to introduce the various topics and point attendees towards resources where they can learn more if they are interested in additional information.

In this third session, attendees will learn how to put everything they’ve learned together to find out, “Once I’ve designed it and built it, how do I make it work well?” We will discuss how to decide which signal operating plan to use at an intersection. Attendees will also learn about “Lane Elimination”, pretimed control, and actuated control.

At the conclusion of the 3-part series attendees should be able to answer the following questions:

◾ What is the MUTCD and what is it used for?
◾ What types of traffic data are typically collected and what is it used for?
◾ What is functional classification and context classification?
◾ What is speed management and how do we do it?
◾ What are the common types of intersections and what are the benefits of each type?
◾ What are the warranting criteria for the installation of a traffic signal?
◾ What are some of the factors that influence the design of intersections?
◾ What are some of the critical elements in a modern roundabout?
◾ Who are my design users?
◾ What is a signal phase, the signal cycle length, and a signal interval?
◾ What is the primary consideration when selecting the signal operating plan?
◾ What is the purpose of the yellow and all-red intervals at a traffic signal?
