TRB conducted a webinar on Thursday, March 24, 2016 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that discussed different characteristics of operating roundabout intersections that are not necessarily transferable to a “one size fits all” model. This webinar examined the notion that providing exact design parameters may create intersections that are out of scale with a location and may increase construction costs while not gaining any improvement in safety or operational performance. This webinar addressed the issue of the scalability of roundabout design in order to determine and achieve proper scale.
This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Roundabouts. Participants must register in advance of the webinar, and there is a fee for non-TRB Sponsor or non-TRB Sustaining Affiliate employees. A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual. This webinar has met approval by the American Institute of Certified Planners for 1.5 Certification Maintenance Credits. Contact Reggie Gillum at RGillum@nas.edu for instructions on receiving a copy of the recorded webinar.
