Designing and Operating Intersections for Safety
Instructor-led Training (ILT)
TRAINING LEVEL: Accomplished
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 22 Maximum: 30
Through numerous interactive discussions, exercises, and case studies, this course examines various aspects of design and operations and how they affect the safety of an intersection and its various users. The full course contains a total of six modules: Users and Intersections, Diagnostics and Countermeasures, Geometric Design, Unsignalized Intersections, Signalized Intersections, and Case Studies.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
List the user groups to consider
Describe user characteristics and how they affect intersection design and safety
Describe approaches to balance needs of different user groups
Review how to determine which intersections have poor crash experience
Review how to assess causes of high crash experience or high potential
Describe how to select appropriate countermeasures
Define intersection design objectives, controls, and focus area
Identify key safety-related intersection geometric design decisions, applications, and assumptions
Describe the measured and potential safety improvements that result from key intersection geometrics
Describe safety issues at unsignalized intersections
Summarize MUTCD requirements for signalizing an intersection
Select appropriate countermeasures to address safety issues at unsignalized intersections
Identify common safety concerns at signalized intersections
Discuss contributing factors to safety concerns
Select countermeasures to the safety of signalized intersections
The target audience for the course includes traffic and design engineers with one to five years of work experience.
