Greetings –

 

You and your staff are invited to join the Illinois Department of Transportation for a two-day training course on Designing for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety. The course will be offered twice during the week of November 13 (Class A: November 13-14 and Class B: November 15-16, 8 – 4:30 PM).   Continuing Education Credits will be issued.  The classes will be held at the US Federal Highway Administration Building (3250 Executive Park Dr., Springfield, IL 62703). Please complete the Google form by November 2, 2018 to register.

 

The Designing for Pedestrian and Bicyclist safety course is a two-day training that covers the fundamentals of designing streets with nonmotorized road users in mind. The course will provide participants with information about:

  • Methods for identifying and prioritizing safety problems
  • Factors that influence pedestrian and bicyclist safety
  • Strategies for improving safety for pedestrians and bicyclists

 

Expert instructors from the Federal Highway Administration and VHB will facilitate the two-day course, which will feature a blend of lectures, interactive work, and field exercises.  Please dress appropriately for weather conditions.  Individuals working in transportation planning, engineering, and design are encouraged to participate.

 

Space is limited so please sign up quickly by clicking here!  We encourage you to register as many names as possible.  We will contact you the week of November 5, 2018 if you are on waitlist status.

Note: The above training is heavily geared toward locals, consultants, MPO staff, county staff and others.  In addition, we encourage approximately 2 IDOT staff participants per class/per district as well as additional IDOT staff who may benefit from such training.  Nonetheless, we desire all training sessions be filled.  So, when in doubt, sign up!  The above training also varies from the IDOT Bike/Ped training offered in 2016-2017.  Lastly, the Bureau of Design and Environment will offer training in the coming months specifically for IDOT employees, only.
