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:
 
Engineering & Traffic Studies
Patton Township Building, State College
 
How do you legally establish speed limits on municipal roads? How do you properly place Stop signs? What are the problems associated with improper use of multiway Stop signs? This course answers these questions and more, by demonstrating how to conduct basic engineering and traffic studies for establishment of regulatory signs on municipal roads. It reviews applicable laws, ordinances, regulations and required study procedures for establishing, revising and removing traffic restrictions, as presented in PennDOT Publication 212, Official Traffic Control Devices. Participants also complete exercises in which they perform common engineering and traffic studies using real data.
 
The intended audience includes individuals conducting engineering and traffic studies and those responsible for identifying safety problems and potential solutions, including: law enforcement personnel, roadmasters, and street superintendents. Others who would benefit from this course include: elected officials, public works employees. Engineers are welcome to attend, but the focus is on the non-engineer.
