Project Description

This course is tailored for road authorities and consultants looking for innovative ways to enhance mobility options, increase safety, and reduce congestion along transportation corridors. It teaches attendees the basic elements of (a) active traffic management (ATM), including speed harmonization, queue warnings, management of lane use, advanced weather warnings, and dynamic ramp metering, and (b) managed lanes (ML), including the use of reversible traffic lanes, carpool restrictions, high-speed express bus operations and dynamic road pricing as tools to both improve travel and provide additional mobility options. The course also discusses related tools that enhance these services, including park-and-ride facilities and enhanced multi-modal traveler information.
