The Illinois Section of ITE is hosting a webinar event for the benefit of ITE members and guests. The event will be shown at the City of Naperville Municipal Center and 1.5 PDH's will be available to attendees after the webinar.
With the recent recension and reintroduction of interim approval for the Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB), a lot of attention has been drawn to the wide range of enhancements available for uncontrolled pedestrian crossings. Edge-lit warning signs, circular beacons, knock-down signs, flash rates... our toolbox continues to grow, but how are these devices actually used in practice?
ITE has created an Uncontrolled Pedestrian Crossings working group focused on this critical safety issue for members, with this webinar being the first effort. This webinar will feature perspectives from two local agencies, Seattle and Des Moines, as well as the Florida Department of Transportation, and how these agencies are addressing their uncontrolled crossings. This webinar is co-sponsored by the ITE Complete Streets Council and the Transportation Council.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will have:
- Learned about the wide variety of treatment options for uncontrolled pedestrian crossings.
- Experienced how a variety of jurisdictions are addressing safety at their uncontrolled crossings.
- Reviewed the safety research that has been conducted and what additional research is needed on uncontrolled crossing countermeasures.
Light refreshments will be served and networking with fellow transportation professionals is encouraged.
