How and where vehicles enter and leave the roadway strongly affect traffic safety and traffic operations on the site itself, in the street, and through nearby intersections. This course focuses on good practices for effective management of the many different types of access between the roadway and a specific site, including commercial, residential, and office sites. It provides a sound technical foundation for engineers and planners whose work involves designing or reviewing issues or on-site circulation plans.
