Vincent D. Reynolds, MBA, PE
This course covers problems and solutions pertaining to high – speed rural two – lane roadways. The types of problems include crashes such as those that occur on horizontal curves, those due to elderly drivers and many others. Solutions to these problems range from 85th percentile speed design of the geometrics, where to place driveways along the roadway and the placement of advance warning signs, among others.
This 6-hour course will discuss Geometric design consistency as it relates to high-speed rural two-lane roadways. Several examples are given in the text that explains how geometric design solutions are applied to high-speed rural two-lane roadways. This course will provide useful information to determine the proper designs for safe high-speed rural two-lane roadways.
This course can be used by anyone with an interest in roadway design, traffic engineering and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). This course is also perfect for anyone that would like to know more information regarding High-speed rural two-lane roadways and the effects on their communities. After reading this course the student will know the basic information regarding the geometric design consistency on high-speed rural two-lane roadways.
The course materials are based solely on the Transportation Research Board document “Geometric Design Consistency on High-Speed Rural Two-Lane Roadways.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
