Price: $85.00
Quantity: *

The U.S. Federal Highway Administration has identified countermeasures that research has proven effective in driving down injuries and deaths from crashes. This webinar will provide detailed case studies of countermeasures that improve safety for vulnerable road users: the pedestrian hybrid beacon (HAWK), the pedestrian refuge or crossing island, and road diets. Tamara Redmon, Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Team Leader at FHWA, will provide an introduction that highlights research, guidance and key resources related to these facilities.

In Scottsdale, Arizona, a HAWK beacon was installed in conjunction with a pedestrian crossing island on Scottsdale Boulevard, a busy commercial corridor that is also the boundary between Phoenix and Scottsdale. In Orlando, Florida, Edgewater Drive was an early road diet; 1.5 miles of 4-lane roadway (ADT approximately 20,000) were converted to 3 lanes plus bicycle lanes. Presenters will discuss project design details and information about cost and outcomes, including data related to the benefits to adjacent businesses and property owners.

Jeffrey Arms, Project Manager, City of Orlando Public Works
Susan Conklu, Transportation Planner, City of Scottsdale
Steven Ramsey, Senior ITS Engineer, City of Scottsdale
Tamara Redmon, Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Team Leader, FHWA.
