Roadside Hazard Identification for Transportation Personnel

Type: 
Road Scholar Level II
Hours: 
8

The Roadside Hazard Identification course will provide information and resources for municipalities to understand the importance of roadside safety and to be able to determine the most appropriate countermeasures. This class is not a design class but will focus on practical applications of roadside safety concepts. For example, it will follow the common theme for roadside hazard identification and improvement: hazard removal, relocation, make breakaway, shield, and delineate. Therefore, it will cover low cost improvements (pavement markings, delineators, chevrons) and higher cost (barriers). Information on guardrail types and end treatments will be presented.
