Description – To advance implementation of the Safe System Approach (SSA) for reducing crash-related fatalities and serious injuries, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has developed three resources for measuring SSA alignment: Safe System Project-Based Alignment Framework, Safe System Policy-Based Alignment Framework, and Safe System Roadway Design Hierarchy based on national and international best practice research for SSA solutions and strategies.  This workshop will share FHWA’s latest resources and tools for assessing Safe System alignment in both infrastructure projects and policies, and discuss how Ohio DOT and partners could adopt and utilize these in their work.  Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the Safe System Roadway Design Hierarchy.
  • Characterize engineering-related countermeasures and strategies relative to their alignment with the Safe System Roadway Design Hierarchy.
  • Understand and apply the Project-Based and Policy-Based Alignment Frameworks.
  • Identify opportunities to align projects or policies with the Safe System principles.
  • Advance implementation of the SSA in projects and policies.

Who Should Attend? – Federal, State, and local highway engineers and planners involved in project or policy development that impact roadway safety.

Instructors – Stephen Ratke, P.E., RSP2I with the FHWA Resource Center Safety and Design team; and Cory Hopwood, P.E., RSP2I with Cambridge Systematics.

Registration Information – This training is being offered at no charge due to the sponsorship of FHWA.  Lunch is “on your own”.  Any registrant requiring a reasonable accommodation during training (i.e., mobility or access) should contact Ohio LTAP prior to the course so appropriate arrangements can be made.  If you are sick or not feeling well, or if you have any reason to believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus: please DO NOT show up at the training site, and DO NOT attend the session.  If you need to cancel your registration, please contact the LTAP office.

Description – Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists face greater mobility challenges and safety risks at intersections as traffic volumes grow and congestion worsens. Agencies need safer, more balanced designs that keep people moving. Innovative intersection designs offer many safety and operational benefits, and are being built more often because they can deliver more for less. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) launched the Every Day Counts (EDC) state-based initiative to identify and rapidly deploy proven but underutilized innovations aimed at reducing project delivery time, enhancing roadway safety, reducing congestion, and improving environmental sustainability. In 2012, Intersection & Interchange Geometrics (IIG) was selected as a featured innovative technology in EDC Round-2. IIG consists of a family of innovative intersection designs that improve intersection safety while also reducing delay, and at lower cost and with fewer impacts than comparable traditional solutions. In a continuing effort to advance the deployment of innovative intersection designs, NHI is pleased to offer this training workshop to assist transportation professionals in better understanding these intersections and the potential benefits they can provide when correctly implemented.

Who Should Attend? – The target audience for this training includes state and local transportation agency personnel, and/or consultants having responsibilities for developing and designing elements pertaining to intersections and interchanges.

Instructor – James McCarthy, PE, PTOE with CAM Creek Consulting, Sunrise Minnesota.

Description – This course provides a holistic approach to signalized intersections and considers the safety and operational implications of a particular treatment on all system users, including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. Using the guide, participants learn to make insightful intersection assessments, understand the tradeoffs of potential improvement measures, and apply guidebook measures and best practices to reduce the incidence of intersection crashes. Practitioners will find the tools and information necessary to make insightful intersection assessments and to understand the impacts of potential improvement measures. The information in this guide is based on the latest research available and includes examples of novel treatments as well as best practices in use by jurisdictions across the United States and other countries. Additional resources and references are mentioned for the practitioner who wishes to learn more about a particular subject. This guide is not intended to replicate or replace traditional traffic engineering documents such as the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) 2010 or the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO) A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets, nor is it intended to serve as a standard or policy document. Rather, it provides a synthesis of best practices and treatments intended to help practitioners make informed, thoughtful decisions.

Who Should Attend? – Professionals responsible for design, management, or operation of traffic signals. This includes design engineers, operations engineers and technicians (advanced) of state/local agencies, consultants, and FHWA Operations staff.
