New Urban Streets Methodology – Auto Mode
Tuesday, October 9, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Course Credit: 1.5 PDH
This web briefing will explore the application of the new multimodal urban streets method as it relates to the auto mode. Included in the new HCM2010 chapter are improved methods for estimating average travel speed based on the research results from NCHRP 3-79 Measuring and Predicting Arterial Travel Time research project, as well as incorporation of significant changes to the signalized method which are referenced by the Urban Streets chapter.
Instructor: Dennis Strong, P.E., PTOE, President, Strong Concepts, Northbrook, IL, USA
Freeway Facility Method Applications
Tuesday, October 30, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Course Credit: 1.5 PDH
The focus of this webinar is on applications of the freeway facility method to real-world applications, including recurring bottlenecks, work zone impacts, and even weather effects on freeway performance. The talk will further discuss ways to adapt the existing HCM method to allow the evaluation of Active Traffic and Demand Managements (ATDM) strategies, including ramp metering, hard-shoulder running, freeway service patrols, and demand management impacts of route diversion or peak spreading. The webinar will conclude with a discussion of calibration and validation approaches that can be applied to relatively quickly adapt the method to match field-observed performance.
