We will also discuss the various publications and resources available for attendees to learn more about traffic engineering fundamentals.
Part 2 of 3 – Traffic Design

Next, we will discuss the criteria for choosing different types of intersections. Attendees will also learn where to find information on design criteria and controls.
Part 3 of 3 – Traffic Operations
In this third session, attendees will learn how to put everything they have learned together to answer the question, “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.
