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.
