This course provides participants with an appreciation of the key policies, institutional issues, challenges and barriers, and technical and other issues to consider in the planning, design, implementation, management, operation, evaluation, and marketing of freeway facilities. The course is based upon the "Freeway Management and Operations Handbook," September 2003 (FHWA-OP-04-003, EDL No.: 13875). Unlike the 3-day course, which covers all of the information in the handbook, the 2-day course allows a host to tailor the course to the particular needs of the participants. The 2-day course covers nine core sessions and three optional sessions selected from the following list:
Roadway and Operational Improvements
Ramp Management and Control
Lane Management and Control
Traffic Incident Management
Planned Special Events
Information Sharing and Integrations
This course is designed for professionals engaged in any aspect of planning, design, implementation, management, evaluation, enforcement, operation, or marketing of freeway facilities and should be considered as an introductory course for individuals with limited or no experience in traffic management or freeway management. This course is also of value to individuals whose experience is concentrated in one area of freeway operations as the course exposes participants to the wide array of freeway management activities. Participants could include traffic engineers and technicians, transportation planners, roadway design engineers and technicians, construction and maintenance engineers and technicians, managers/supervisors, transit planners, traffic management center (TMC) staff, and public information specialists from public agencies, consultants and contractors, and colleges and universities.
