This course will focus on material from the Guidelines for Reducing WWD Crashes on freeways and the results from three research projects funded by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), including (1) A Study of WWD Crashes in Alabama; (2) Development of Predictive Models for WWD Incidents; (3) Development of WWD Training Material for ALDOT. The course will introduce the key contributing factors to WWD crashes in Alabama and a newly developed network screen tool to identify high-risk interchange terminals for WWD incidents. Participants will also learn how to diagnose the hotspots through a standard field inspection procedure and how to select suitable low- cost or advanced engineering countermeasures to mitigate WWD activities through case studies.
Participants completing this seminar will receive 0.60 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The cost for this seminar is $175.00 per person.
