Traffic Signal Design and Operation

21 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • discover the design of an intersection from concept to completion
  • benefit from the insight gained at this course the preparation necessary to develop design considerations, select signal equipment and its placement
  • acquire practical methods to become more knowledgeable about uniform traffic control devices for Canada
  • apply bikeway traffic control and accessible pedestrian signals guidelines
  • expand your knowledge of transit priority system

Recent advances in technology and sophistication in hardware and software, have made it possible to design and build more effective and reliable traffic signals and traffic signal systems. Expectation of better service in local areas is increasing as more motorists experience the newer and more effective traffic signal systems. Consequently, many transportation authorities are faced with the demands, not only for additional traffic signals, but also for upgrade of the existing traffic signal systems to meet increased traffic flows and safety concerns.

If your existing traffic signal systems cannot meet the new demands placed on them, join us at this course to share experiences of specialists in this field.
