Description – This course provides instruction on how local communities can determine if there is a pedestrian or bicyclist safety issue in certain neighborhoods or along particular corridors. It explains common causes of real and perceived safety issues and shows how walk/bike audits can identify problems using local knowledge and professional expertise. Instructors will review different types of walk and bike audits, helpful resources, such as walkscore.com, and special considerations around intersections, schools, and other potential conflict points and sensitive land uses. During the training, instructors will lead participants on a mock walk or bike audit at a nearby location that poses safety challenges to pedestrians and/or bicyclists.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to lead an informal walk or bike audit in their communities. They will be aware of the resources and tools available to guide audit planning, data collection, public participation, and interpretation of audit results. Ultimately, participants should be able to use their walk/bike audit experiences to create positive change in their communities.

Description – There is a need to understand that the congestion and delays that exist on our streets and roadways can be better managed with a thorough understanding of effective traffic signal timing and optimization. Well-developed, designed, implemented, maintained, and operated traffic signal control projects are essential to this process. Engineering tools are available to design, optimize, analyze, and simulate traffic flow. This course addresses the application of the “Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices” (MUTCD) to intersection displays, as well as signal timing, computerized traffic signal systems, control strategies, integrated systems, traffic control simulation, and optimization software. The course is divided into two primary parts: Traffic Signal Timing and Design, and Traffic Signal Systems.

Who Should Attend? – Traffic engineering personnel from State, Federal, and local agencies involved in planning, design, operation or maintenance of traffic signals or traffic signal systems. The course will not assume any prior knowledge of computers and thus will describe the theory of operation and the manner in which it can be applied to traffic signal controls.

Instructors – Eric J. Tripi, P.E., PTOE, Regional Transportation Leader with GHD; and Rick Denney, Traffic Management Specialist with FHWA.

Description – The OTIM training provides education to responders on the safest and most effective means of processing incident scenes to improve the safety of the responders and the motorists by quickly and efficiently clearing the scene and getting all highway lanes reopened to traffic. Using a multidisciplinary perspective, responders learn how to operate more cooperatively and collectively. The training covers many topics such as learning how the placement of response vehicles can either aid or impede other discipline’s efforts and can impact how quickly traffic flow can be restored. Responders learn about quick clearance concepts to help prevent additional injuries or delays that may result from secondary crashes in the queue of traffic.

Who Should Attend? – Anyone who responds to incidents impacting the roadway transportation system, such as Fire Departments, EMS, Law Enforcement (Police, Sheriff, Highway Patrol), Roadway Management/Maintenance, Public Works, DOT, EPA, EMA, and Towing and Recovery Companies.

Important Note: If you are a Contractor working on major projects for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), attending this version of OTIM does not fulfill the training requirements specified in Plan Note 642-45.  There is a separate version of this class called Contractor OTIM Training (or TIM During MOT), which is required of all contractors working on ODOT projects that include Plan Note 642-45.  Please fill out this form to request the Contractor OTIM Training.

DescriptionThe Ohio LTAP Center is hosting a group viewing of this webinar broadcast at ODOT Central Office in Columbus (Fourth Floor – Room 4A). What’s the difference between a traditional roundabout and a turbo roundabout? TRB is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 ET to answer this question. A turbo roundabout has the same operating characteristics as modern roundabouts but utilizes different geometrics to address the conflicts associated with the common crash types in multilane roundabouts. This webinar will discuss international experiences with turbo roundabouts and identify key considerations for U.S. implementation. The content is based on a technical summary by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

Webinar Presenters – Letty Schamp, City of Hilliard, Ohio; Brian Moore and Jaap Tigelaar, Arcadis; and RJ Porter, VHB.

Who Should Attend? – Public agency employees/officials, consultants, planners, and other persons whose work includes consideration of roundabouts.
