Description – As the 28-year anniversary of passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) approaches this July, it is critical that local governments recognize their obligation to establish and maintain accessibility to their programs, services and activities.  ADA requires that public agencies perform self-evaluations and prepare transition plans to upgrade facilities for accessibility as needed, including streets, sidewalks and buildings.  Transition plans were to have been completed by July 26, 1992 and updated periodically.  The morning portion of the workshop examines the background to, contents of and enforcement of the self-evaluation and transition plan requirements.  Several landmark court cases are also highlighted.  Participants will leave the session with a “To Do” list of next steps they need to take and a toolkit of helpful resources, including a free Transition Plan template that is available from the Ohio LTAP website.  The afternoon session overviews the current criteria for accessible public rights-of-way including the pedestrian access route, curb ramps and detectable warnings, accessible pedestrian signals, street furniture, on-street parking and temporary traffic control requirements for pedestrians.

Description: The National Highway Institute (NHI) course Traffic Signal Timing Concepts is a two-day course in traffic signal timing for isolated and coordinated traffic signal operations with the understanding of how the design of traffic signal timing fits into an objective-driven, performance-oriented process.

Traffic signal timing plays a key role in the performance of transportation systems across the country. Unfortunately, for many agencies, traffic signal timing continues to be an ad-hoc, complaint-driven process with little documentation and infrequent attempts to quantify performance or improvements. While response to user complaints is admirable, regular use of complaints as the primary trigger for traffic signal retiming is not likely to lead to a well-managed, objective driven process for the timing and retiming of traffic signals, nor does it typically provide agencies with a good feel for the overall performance of their system. What is needed is an objective-driven, performance-oriented approach to traffic signal timing.

The overall goal of this course is to assist agencies both with the development of additional technical expertise in traffic signal timing for isolated and system operations and with the understanding of how the design of traffic signal timing fits into an objective-driven, performance-oriented process. As part of this course, participants will:

  • Learn methods for calculating traffic signal timing parameters.
  • Learn to choose between user-selected modes of traffic signal operation.
  • Learn how operational objectives lead to the selection of particular calculation methods and modes of operation.
  • Learn how operational objectives lead to the use of particular performance measures for evaluation.

This course is very interactive and includes many exercises. Participants calculate various timing parameters by hand so they should bring a calculator to the course.

Traffic Signal Timing Concepts is a two-day course for practitioners involved in or responsible for design, operations, or management of traffic signals including State/MPOs/Local Government personnel and consultants and contractors.

 

Description – Recently, ODOT's GIS Crash Analysis Tool (GCAT) transitioned into ODOT TIMS (Transportation Information Mapping System).  While the concept has remained the same in searching for crash data, the training will cover the new functionality.

GCAT is an easy-to-use tool that provides a convenient way for qualified agencies to search statewide crash data.  The training is portioned into two categories:

  1. GCAT – Search for crash data
  2. CAM Tool – Analyze the crash data received from GCAT

The tool is a web application and can be accessed from any computer online through the ODOT website. This workshop will show how to search for any crash data all the way from a statewide perspective down to a particular road or intersection.  Each session will be held in a computer training room to allow for hands-on use of the GCAT & CAM Tool software.

Who Should Attend?GCAT access is available to the following agencies: county, city, village, township, MPOs, ODOT, law enforcement and safety study consultants.

Instructor – The primary instructor will be Michael McNeill with ODOT’s Safety Program.

Registration InformationThis course offering is limited to employees of the agencies listed above.  Registrations are processed in the order they are submitted online, while seats are still available.  There is no fee to attend; however, participants must pre-register.  Any registrant requiring a reasonable accommodation during training (i.e., mobility or access) should contact Ohio LTAP prior to the course date so the appropriate arrangements can be made.

Description – This course is applicable to ODOT employees, APWA members and local public agency employees involved with roadside vegetation management.  The use of various herbicides to supplement traditional mowing and cutting programs will be discussed.  Compliance with Ohio’s herbicide regulations for human and environmental safety will be emphasized.

Description – Keeping our roads safe for older users is an emphasis area for many transportation agencies. There are over 40 million licensed drivers in the US aged 65 or older —a 33-percent increase from 10 years ago. Older drivers represent about 18 percent of all licensed drivers in the US with even higher concentrations in some states. Aging can impact a variety of skills and abilities necessary for safe driving.  Many highway design and traffic control elements can be improved to better meet the aging population’s needs.  Furthermore, all road users can benefit from safety improvements that are designed with older drivers in mind.  This workshop will familiarize participants with the physical, perceptual, and cognitive impairments that can impact the ability to safely navigate a vehicle, and illustrate key strategies that agencies can implement for improving safety and mobility for older roadway users. The workshop is intended for transportation professionals involved in designing, constructing, operating and maintaining streets and roads. The workshop content is directly derived from the Federal Highway Administration’s Handbook for Designing Roadways for the Aging Population and will familiarize participants with the recommended practices from the Handbook in the areas of highway geometry, operations, and traffic control devices.  The workshop is beneficial for transportation professionals who plan, design, review, recommend, and/or approve the design and traffic operational criteria for transportation projects.

Who Should Attend? – Transportation and planning professionals involved in traffic operations, roadway design, maintenance supervisors, local road supervisors, and regional development organizations. Specifically, the course is intended for those individuals directly involved in implementing roadway improvement solutions in their jurisdictions.

Instructor – Mark Doctor, P.E., Safety and Design Engineer, Federal Highway Administration Office of Technical Services / Resource Center (Atlanta, GA).
