This course provides an overview of the "Signalized Intersections: Informational Guide FHWA-HRT-04-091." The guide is a comprehensive document containing methods for evaluating the safety and operations of signalized intersections and tools to remedy deficiencies.
It takes 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.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe signalized intersection project process, safety analysis methods, and operational analysis methods
- Describe the more than 100 signalized intersection treatments and their advantages and disadvantages
Federal, State, and local transportation, traffic and safety engineers, and planners involved in planning, designing, operating, and remedying crash problems for signalized intersections.
