Intersections are unique roadway elements where conflicting vehicle streams (and sometimes non-motorized users) share the same space. This area encompasses all modes of travel –pedestrian, bicycle, passenger vehicle, truck, and transit as well as auxiliary lanes, medians, islands, sidewalks and pedestrian ramps. These critical tools provide important information for safe travel on any U.S. roadway system. This 5-hour course is a summary of the design process for today’s at-grade intersections. Participants will be given an in-depth look at the principles and potential trade-offs to be considered when selecting and designing for intersections. By combining this course material with work experience and engineering judgment, the participant may produce plans beneficial to the traveling public.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
