Best of Minneapolis: Speeding Up the Slowdown -- Strategies for More Intelligent Speed Management in Urban and Suburban Communities

When: Nov 28, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (ET)

This webinar, originally delivered as one of ITE's most popular technical sessions at the Joint ITE International and Midwestern/Great Lakes Districts Annual Meeting and Exhibit, focuses on new approaches to speed management, and how slower speeds can reduce fatalities and improve community livability. Several projects from medium and large cities around the Midwest will showcase the project development process for previously high-risk corridors, and the session will conclude with a broader discussion on intelligent speed limit setting and how to leverage all available tools and resources.
