Event Date Organization Event Name Type Location
Nov 28 - 30, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety  - The Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety is a combination of the information from the 2-day "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) and 2-day "Designing for Pedestrian Safety" (NHI-380090) course. This comprehensive course is designed to help state and local officials learn "HOW TO" address pedestrian safety issues in the development of a pedestrian safety action plan, and specific programs and activities tailored to their community. It is also intended to assist agencies in the further enhancement of their existing pedestrian safety plan, programs, and activities, including involving partners and stakeholders, collecting and analyzing data and information, prioritizing issues and concerns, selecting and implementing an optimal combination of education, enforcement, engineering strategies. This course goes into more detail on engineering strategies than the "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) course. This course includes two field exercises in the application of the principles, concepts, and strategies covered in the course. Also the participants will share and prioritize potential policies, programs, and strategies.

Event  Columbia, SC 
Jan 23 - 25, 2018  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Managing Road Impacts on Stream Ecosystems: An Interdisciplinary Approach  - Managing Road Impacts on Stream Ecosystems: An Interdisciplinary Approach is a three-day course that is intended to introduce and discuss the basic concepts related to the impacts that roadways have on streams and stream ecosystems. The course will be structured to first address the ecological and physical characteristics of stream ecosystems, discuss the impacts that roadways can have on those ecosystems, and then turn to tools that the practitioner can use to help avoid and mitigate those effects. Through the use of Case Examples, discussion, and other application techniques, the participants will be afforded an opportunity to use critical thinking to identify solutions and preventative measures related to the impacts of roads on streams and their riparian communities.

Dec 12 - 14, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Highways in the Coastal Environment  - Over 60,000 miles of roads in the United States are occasionally exposed to coastal surge and waves. Due to these unique design conditions, many highways and bridges suffer damage during coastal storms, including hurricanes and El Nino events. The purpose of this course is to teach important concepts and terminology of coastal science and engineering to highway engineers for use in the planning and design of coastal roads. The course is based on the Hydraulic Engineering Circular (HEC) No. 25, "Highways in the Coastal Environment" (2nd Edition), which is also used in the course as a reference manual.

Jun 12 - 13, 2018  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Highway Program Funding  - This instructor-led training provides an overview of the Federal-aid Highway Program, focusing on various aspects of highway program funding unique to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Topics include: the operation of the Highway Trust Fund and its significance to the funding level of the Federal-aid Highway Program; the content and policy implications of authorizing and appropriating legislation; the FHWA apportionment process; discussion of obligation limitation, allocations, deductions, earmarking, and transferability; and the effect of policy and budget considerations on the use of Federal-aid funds. The course has been updated to complement the new Federal-aid authorization bill.

Nov 30, 2017  FTA  FTA Webinar: TAM Internal Coordination  - The webinar will feature presentations from Matthew Wilson, Fixed Asset Manager for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), and Justin Barclay, Asset Management Coordinator for the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), and will highlight how each agency supports TAM through informal and formal staff coordination as well as how they have gained support for TAM from their executives and boards. The TAM Internal Coordination webinar is part of a larger webinar series FTA is hosting in 2017 to address important topics relating to TAM. TAM is an essential practice for providing safer, more reliable transit service nationwide while helping lower operating costs.  Webinar   
Nov 29, 2017  FTA  FTA Webinar: Performance-Based Planning and Programming Roundtable  - Is your agency on track in setting its transit asset management (TAM) performance targets? Join FTA and co-hosting organizations at a November 29 webinar to learn about legislative requirements for performance-based planning as well as the experiences of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and transit agencies working to develop TAM plans and set state of good repair performance targets.  Webinar   
Dec 5, 2017  FTA  FTA Webinar: Introducing FTA’s Strategic Transit Automation Research Plan  - Automation technology is rapidly advancing and has the potential to transform the transportation system. To help position the public transportation industry to implement and benefit from these technologies, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has developed a five-year research agenda to move the industry forward and address critical questions: What are the transit bus automation use cases? What are the potential benefits of automation for bus transit? What are the risks and challenges? Which technologies are already available and which are still emerging? What capabilities need to be developed and tested? How can transit agencies get started? FTA will present a framework for research, demonstrations, and strategic partnerships needed to advance transit bus automation in the United States.  Webinar   
Nov 30, 2017  FHWA  FHWA Webinar: Level of Service in the New World of Performance Measurement  - Learn from practitioners who have adapted new approaches to the traditional Level of Service. New approaches for multimodal systems will be presented by State DOT and MPO representatives.  Webinar   
Dec 6, 2017  Esri  Esri Webinar: All Roads with Roads & Highways  - Supporting the All Roads Network with Esri’s Roads and Highways. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has required that each State DOT submit an All Roads Network with their Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) or annual road mileage submittals. This webinar focuses on the use of Roads and Highways to meet this critical requirement. Highlighted will be best practice in working with local jurisdictions, MPOs and other agencies to create a consistent, linearly referenced statewide network that complies with FHWA requirements, and can be used for other collaborative purposes within your state.   Webinar
