Thank you

The live event has ended. Recording now available to stream. 

Roadway designs that address the safety of all road users are being implemented in many cities around the United States and are increasingly the focus of planning and design projects. This session focused on the evaluation of safety treatments in Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) methodologies, the latest research and developments from the FHWA on pedestrian/bicycle safety measures, and an example of a Statewide Pedestrian System Plan that includes a number of measures to track progress on achieving the plan’s goals and objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Show scalable guidance for jurisdictions (urban, suburban, and rural) to recommend enhancements to HCM methodologies
  • Describe how a state DOT selects performance measures and sets targets for measures
  • Identify methods to track progress on pedestrian planning initiatives
  • Darren Buck, Pedestrian and Bicycle Program Coordinator, Federal Highway Administration
  • Jake Rueter, Pedestrian and Bicycle Planner, Minnesota DOT
    • Measuring Outcomes from MnDOT’s Statewide Pedestrian System Plan
  • Paul Ryus, Principal Engineer, Kittelson & Associates
    • New HCM Methods for Evaluating Pedestrian Crossings
PDH/CM Credits Available: 1.5
To earn your credits, you must view the session and complete the associated evaluation. Once your evaluation is completed, your certificate will be available in your ITE Learning Hub account.
