Workshop Spotlight

Roundabouts, A Safer Solution
August 31, 2022 |  Online Training
7:45 AM – 4:00 PM

Many jurisdictions are looking for alternative intersection control methods to improve safety and carry more traffic without widening roadways. Roundabouts provide one of those methods.  Roundabouts are a common form of intersection control used throughout the United States. They are becoming more popular based on the multiple advantages to safety, operations, and aesthetics. However, as agencies become increasingly familiar with these types of intersections, it is important to understand both advantages and disadvantages, which this workshop addresses.

Selection and design of a roundabout, as with any intersection treatment, requires the balancing of competing objectives. These range from transportation-oriented objectives like safety, operational performance, and accessibility for all users to other factors such as economics, land use, aesthetics, and environmental aspects. This workshop highlights roundabout principles, providing participants a foundation, when combined with experience will produce favorable outcomes that benefit the traveling public and community.

Who Should Attend: The workshop is designed to address the needs of a variety of learners, including the general public, policy makers, transportation planners, operations and safety analysts, and conceptual and detailed designers, as well as those interested in simply learning more about roundabouts.
