This course will be delivered Virtually through Zoom.
This workshop was designed to provide local agencies and community advocates with practical and effective ways to incorporate safety solutions into daily activities and the project development process. Using examples, case studies, and hands-on activities, the course demonstrates how to integrate safety solutions into rural and local transportation projects at all stages of the project development process - planning, design, construction, implementation, operations, and maintenance. The course provides practical guidance in identifying road safety issues and implementing low-cost countermeasures. It also presents the benefits and potential cost savings of integrating safety improvements into daily operations and maintenance activities - not just on an occasional basis, but 365 days a year.
The Road Safety 365 workshop audience ranges from decision-makers, road crews, elected officials, public safety advocates, State Department of Transportation personnel, law enforcement, consultants, regional and rural development organizations, local planning commissions, and metropolitan/rural planning organizations. After completing the workshop, participants should be able to identify safety issues on their road network and the countermeasures and available resources to address them.
