The Manual of Uniform Minimum Standards for Design, Construction and Maintenance (Florida Greenbook) provides criteria for public streets, roads, highways, bridges, sidewalks, curbs and curb ramps, crosswalks, bicycle facilities, underpasses, and overpasses used by the public for vehicular and pedestrian travel.

This 6-part webinar series will provide an in-depth review of the 2018 Florida Greenbook, which is also known as the “Manual of Uniform Minimum Standards for Design, Construction and Maintenance for Streets and Highways.” In this training we will be covering things like what the Greenbook is and types of projects it applies to; transportation planning and land development concepts; fundamentals of geometric design and roadway design; design variations and exceptions; pedestrian, bike, and transit facilities; traffic calming and residential street design; and work zone traffic control. 

This training is intended to provide an in-depth review of the 2018 Florida Greenbook and how it should be used by local agencies or by others doing work for the local agencies across Florida. The aim of the training is to introduce the various topics in the Greenbook, and even more importantly, to equip you with the resources you need so that you can find additional information.

In this 6-part webinar series, we’ll cover Chapters 1-20 of the Florida Greenbook, including the 2018 updates.

This training meets the requirements for LAP Certification. Attendance satisfies the Greenbook portion of the LAP Construction Checklist, Specifications, and Greenbook Training. LAP Course no. BT-05-0197.
