Travel safety, complete streets, advanced signal technology, and VMT as a metric for environmental analysis in California
This online training provides fundamental and practical knowledge on traffic flows, with emphasis on how to assess and improve these flows. It focuses primarily on the “link & node” level of traffic systems and explores three themes for designing, evaluating, and controlling traffic systems:
Attendees will learn basic assessment methods and traffic flow theories particularly for evaluating the effects of bottlenecks, as well as the application of these concepts to improve traffic conditions on street and highway networks.
This course uses a combination of lectures, and classroom exercises to convey tools and logic for tackling traffic problems. It provides a sound technical foundation for more specialized courses such as traffic signal operations, freeway operations, and roadway capacity analysis.
Additional course detail is provided in the sections below.
Attendees will gain good understanding of principles in traffic operations and how these principles can be applied to address real-world traffic problems.
This course is specially tailored for engineers and planners who work in the traffic and transportation fields, with or without previous formal training/experience in traffic flow fundamentals.
