Description

This one-day course offers students an opportunity to learn how to design more "forgiving" roadways-those that minimize hazardous installations and reduce potential for death, injury, and property damage associated with crashes. Instruction focuses on best practices in the design and evaluation of common roadside structures such as guardrails, concrete barriers, signs, light pole supports, and work-zone devices. This course is based on the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide, Caltrans Standard Plans, and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 350: Recommended Procedures for the Safety Performance Evaluation of Roadside Features. Video presentations illustrate various safety devices and impact attenuators, to help students understand the dynamics of roadside crashes.

Topics Include

  • identification of potential hazards
  • design of guardrails, concrete barriers, and impact attenuators
  • new requirements for guardrail end terminals
  • NCHRP crash test results for barrier systems
  • break-away sign and lighting supports
  • traversable drainage facilities

What you will learn

Students learn how to recognize, evaluate and resolve potentially hazardous situations involving common roadside structures. Students also learn how to design, install, and maintain new devices to mitigate or avoid these hazards, and how to identify conditions that could make some safety features less effective than expected.

Who should attend

This class is intended for engineers, planners, and managers with responsibilities for safety management and traffic problem analysis.
