Description

SEDA-COG has partnered with PennDOT to provide municipal officials with free training through the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).  Upcoming courses include the following:
 
Local Road Safety Plans
Point Township Building, Northumberland
 
This course will teach participants how to develop a local road safety plan that provides a framework for identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing safety improvements on local roads. The content of a local road safety plan is tailored to local issues and needs and will vary accordingly. The process of developing a plan results in a prioritized list of issues, safety concerns, actions, and improvements, which can then be used to reduce fatalities and serious injuries on local roads. This course is based on the Federal Highway Administration’s Local Road Safety Plan Guidebook, the PennDOT Strategic Highway Safety Plan, and other relevant resources. Municipalities should consider developing a local road safety plan to use as a tool for reducing fatalities, injuries, and crashes and properly allocating limited safety resources. The plan should be viewed as a living document that can be updated to reflect changing local needs and priorities. This course will: Examine the components of a local road safety plan; Review national and state regulations and guidelines for developing local road safety plans; Explain through workshops and exercises how to create a local road safety plan.
 
The intended audience includes local government officials responsible for the management of transportation facilities. This include municipal elected officials, public works directors, supervisors, roadmasters, planners, police officers, and others responsible for safety.
