This month's ITE webinar event is geared toward transportation interns who are interested in learning more about the profession. All are welcome to attend, although interns who are beginning to explore a career in traffic engineering will especially benefit from the topics covered.
The event will be shown at Jacobs' Chicago office and 1.5 PDH's will be available.
Light refreshments will be served and there will be time after the webinar to meet with fellow transportation interns and experienced professionals.
Please consider forwarding this invite to your company's interns and/or coordinating their registration.
Traffic engineering is that phase of engineering that deals with the planning, geometric design and traffic operations of transportation systems including roads, streets, highways, sidewalks and bicycle lanes for the achievement of safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods.
As trained professionals, traffic engineers need to base their recommendations by studying existing and future conditions under a number of scenarios. As part of these efforts, traffic engineers take traffic counts, analyze accident statistics, study speed data, examine roadway conditions, conduct research and study what other professionals are doing and the results they have achieved. Millions and multi-millions of dollars are typically spent based on the findings and recommendations of traffic engineering studies.
This webinar provides an introduction to the multitude of studies and measurements performed by traffic engineers and transportation planners as part of their work, and some of the pitfalls to be aware of when performing certain types of traffic engineering studies.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will have:
- Reviewed the state of the practice for Traffic Engineering Studies.
- Learned about potential new Traffic Engineering Studies.
- Gained insight into the potential pitfalls to avoid with Traffic Engineering Studies.
Registration Deadline: Tuesday, July 17th at 5:00 pm
