Resolving Conflicts at Complex Intersections
The webinar will focus on mitigating bad geometry at awkward intersections, including how to address skews, multi-legs, unusual bicycle and pedestrian movements, and interchanges. Through an overview of engineering tools and many examples, partipants will learn how to realign skewed intersections, get rid of extra legs, place crosswalks, design corner radii to reduce speed while accommodating turning trucks, and use islands and medians to make a complex intersection safer and more pedestrian friendly. Several signal phasing topics will also be covered, including exclusive pedestrian phases, leading pedestrian intervals, banning RTOR, and bicycle signals.
Presenter: Michael Moule, PE, TE, PTOE, has over 18 years of progressive traffic and transportation engineering experience, including traffic calming, conceptual design for Complete Streets, and the planning of improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities. His projects accommodate all modes of transportation in order to help cities and states meet their mobility, economic development, safety, and quality of life goals. He has significant innovative design experience and specializes in improving conditions for non-motorized users without degrading motor vehicle capacity. Michael routinely leads community planning processes and training sessions to give citizens the basic skills they need to develop and review street design solutions.
