A CT Traffic Signal Academy Workshop
This course provides an overview of the "Signalized Intersections: Informational Guide FHWA-HRT-04-091." The guide is a comprehensive document containing methods of evaluating the safety and operations of signalized intersections and tools to remedy deficiencies. It takes a holistic approach to signalized intersections and considers the safety and operational implications of a particular treatment on all system users, including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. Using the guide, participants learn to make insightful intersection assessments, understand trade-offs of potential improvement measures, and apply guidebook measures and best practices to reduce the incidence of intersection crashes.
