Planning, Design, and Operations of Road Segments and Interchanges in Urban Areas

When: Tuesday, August 27, 2019 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

Webinar Description
Urban freeways and expressways total less than 3 percent of the total urban highway mileage, yet carry more than 37 percent of the daily vehicle-miles of urban travel (FHWA, 2012). In urban settings, it can be particularly challenging to improve transportation facilities with the array of constraints that are commonly faced. Increasing travel demands, limited budgets, and physical constraints are typical to the urban context. Modern practices in the planning, design, and operation of urban uninterrupted-flow facilities involve the implementation of policies, strategies and technologies with a focus on improving overall system performance for all users. Providing transportation improvements that are economical and adaptable to changing demands and user preferences is a core principle in the modern planning and design.
