ALABAMA TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER CENTER

Presents a Seminar on

The 2016 Alabama Traffic Signal Design Guide & Timing Manual: Updates and Additions

There's still time to register!!  Reserve your seat today!!

The purpose of this course is to update traffic signal designers on changes to the Alabama Traffic Signal Design Guide & Timing Manual in the new 2016 edition. The Manual has been updated to reflect the 2009 MUTCD and incorporate new design practices adopted by ALDOT. Significant changes have been made to sections covering railroad pre-emption, traffic signal indications, and fiber optic interconnect. The course will review these changes in detail, as well as provide an overview of the entire document. In addition to introducing the audience to the new manual, the course will provide a general overview of roundabouts and will particularly focus on their safety and operational advantages over traditional intersections. The course will also address how to conduct operational analyses of roundabouts and will introduce a capacity analysis tool developed for planning roundabouts in Alabama.

This course will use semi-structured lectures in combination with interactive discussions and exercises.  This course will be of direct interest to traffic signal designers, technicians of all levels of experience, individuals in the civil engineering field, including state, county and city engineers, public works officials, transportation engineers, consultants, and all those with responsibilities for streets and highways.

Participants completing this seminar will receive 0.60 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  The cost for this seminar is $150.00 per person.
