Temporary Traffic Control: Pedestrian and Bicyclists Considerations

In 2018, 122 pedestrians were killed in work zones in the US.  Non motorized users such as pedestrians and bicyclists face unique challenges in navigating work zones.  As public agencies and contractors, we are bound by the MUTCD to provide for pedestrian traffic in our work zones and we should consider bicyclist.  MUTCD guidance for pedestrian and bicyclist access along with best practices will be covered in this webinar.​  Topics discussed include detour and diversion of sidewalks, channelizing devices, detectable edging, temporary curb ramps, effective communication and bicyclist accommodation.

This workshop can be presented as an one hour in person workshop, virtually in a webinar format tailored to fit your audience, or as an online course.

Temporary Traffic Control: Flagging

In 2018 755 individuals were killed in work zones in the US.  The flagger plays a critical role in reducing this number by providing safe passage for motorists through work zones.  Part 1 of this two part webinar series will discuss why flagging is important, how to properly set up a flagging work zone, and different types of flagging operations.  In Part 2 we will discuss the proper way to flag traffic, AFAD usage, and flagging best practices.  Attendees will learn proper flagging techniques critical to the safety of work zone personnel and designed to help reduce the risk of traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

This workshop can be presented as a two hour in person workshop, virtually in a webinar format tailored to fit your audience, or as an online course.

Work Zone Safety & Traffic Control

This workshop aims to improve worker and motorist safety through learning the proper use of traffic control devices during road maintenance and construction operations, helping participants find out how to use specific types of traffic control devices and how to plan, set up and maintain a work zone.
This training will bring to light the hazards that field workers face every day in construction zones. Class participants experience hands-on use of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

The workshop can be presented in person as a six hour workshop. It can also be presented virtually in a webinar format tailored to fit your audience or as an online course.

Road Safety Audits

Learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a proactive approach to reduce accidents and their severity. These techniques address examination of a roadway by an independent, qualified audit team. The RSA is a way for an agency to improve safety and to communicate to the public how they are working toward accident reductions. This class includes topics such as: RSA definition and history, how to conduct an RSA, and identifying common safety issues found with RSA’s.

The workshop will be taught with a combination of lecture, discussion and activities. It can be presented as a six hour in person workshop, virtually in a webinar format tailored to fit your audience or as an online course.

Road Safety 365

To help reduce the number and severity of crashes on local and rural roadways, the FHWA Office of Safety has developed this one day Road Safety 365 workshop as part of a package of focused products for local and rural governments. Road Safety 365 is designed to provide local and rural agencies with practical and effective ways to incorporate safety solutions into daily activities as well as the project development process.

This workshop is presented with a combination of lecture, discussion and activities. It can be presented as a six hour in person workshop, virtually in a webinar format tailored to fit your audience, or as an online course.

Temporary Traffic Control: Set up, Removal and Managing the Jobsite

Managing the jobsite during road construction can be a challenge for the entire department. Everyone involved in the project needs to understand the work zone plan and how to remain safe on the job. In this webinar you will learn about best practices when setting up the work zone, working in it, and taking it down. 

After completing this course, participants will be able to understand work zone set up/removal and describe how to manage TTC for a jobsite.

Basic Highway Plan Reading

This webinar takes participants through the various types of plans used at road departments. Participants discover how to read and interpret the different types of standard symbols and abbreviations. This course discusses features and details contained within plans; how to define the types of scales and identify dimensions found on plans. Sample roadway plans will be used.  Local agency street maintenance crews and road departments will find the highway plans valuable tools to assist in right of way determination, easement location, and drainage features.

Transportation Asset Management

The large inventory of aging roadways and bridges, the dramatic fluctuations in construction costs, the retirement of experienced transportation workers, and the increased competition for available funding have amplified the challenges transportation agencies face as they manage their highway systems. A number of highway agencies have established Transportation Asset Management (TAM) programs to help document asset conditions, to allocate funding, and to determine the most effective use of available funds. TAM programs provide the processes and tools necessary to help transportation leaders make informed project decisions that can improve the overall operational efficiency of the organization. This webinar covers the basic tenets of an asset management program, how it is useful and looks at pavement preservation strategies.
