Dec 14, 2017  PBIC  PBIC Webinar: Safety Performance Measures for Pedestrians and Bicyclists  - Statistics compiled and released each year have shown a consistent rise in the number of pedestrians and bicyclists killed annually. Unfortunately, fatalities represent only a small share of those injured or involved in crashes, and additional performance measures are needed to gain a full understanding of the safety problem. During this webinar, Amy Schick (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and David Kopacz (Federal Highway Administration) will discuss safety performance measures for bicyclists and pedestrians involved in crashes with motor vehicles. They will describe reporting requirements and what they mean for State, regional and local transportation agencies. Following their presentations, panelists will participate in a discussion period to answer questions from webinar attendees. This webinar is supported by the FHWA Office of Safety, and delivered by VHB and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC) as part of a national program to provide technical assistance in the areas of pedestrian and bicyclist safety.   Webinar   
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.
