Dec 8, 2016  National Highway Institute  NHI Training: MAP-21 Transportation Performance Management Overview (Including FAST Act Updates)  - The MAP-21 Transportation Performance Management Overview (Including FAST Act Updates) is a one-day course that presents an overview of the Transportation Performance Management (TPM) provisions of MAP-21 and FAST Act, describes the responsibilities that agencies at several levels - Federal, State, Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) and Transit - have in delivering these requirements, highlights the importance of data in meeting the performance management provisions and captures noteworthy practices in use today that may help agencies get started on meeting these requirements. This course is highly recommended for participants interested in taking the more detailed system specific MAP-21 implementation training. The aim of this course is to familiarize transportation professionals with the TPM provisions of MAP-21 and FAST and how it can impact existing products and processes. The course introduces key points of overlap between the transit and highway performance measurement provisions in MAP-21, but the primary focus is on the highway provisions. Course material is organized around the TPM elements of goals, measures, targets, plans, accountability and transparency and introduces the related MAP-21/FACT Act provisions for each element. The course provides an introduction on how TPM provisions impact individual performance areas (i.e., safety, pavement/bridge, operations) and how these provisions come together under planning and programming. The course allows participants to interact and to learn from their peers through open discussions and course exercises.

Webinar   
Sep 28 - 29, 2016  National Highway Institute  NHI Training: Bicycle Facility Design  - This training will assist planners and designers in learning how to apply the existing standards and how to deal with other technical issues involved. The availability of Federal, State, and local transportation funding for bicycle facilities that serve transportation and recreational users is resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of bicycling (and shared use) facilities being planned and built. Although there are no Federal design standards for bicycle facilities, the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, or a modification thereof, serves as a design guide. As with most guides, the AASHTO guide cannot address every possible scenario so designers often need to apply engineering judgment where specific information is not provided. The training fee includes a copy of the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities.

Sep 7 - 9, 2016  Moving Rural America   National Working Summit on Transportation in Rural America  - Transportation drives rural America. Rural communities need safe, viable roads and multi-modal systems to move themselves from place to place, and to move goods and services to markets and customers, often across long distances. Without reliable and well-maintained transportation networks through rural areas, visitors cannot enjoy iconic travel and recreation opportunities; and businesses cannot ensure coast-to-coast delivery of goods. A safe, efficient and advanced transportation system is a foundational building block – an essential bridge that enables tourism, technology development, agriculture, commerce and other key elements of prosperous rural communities and a vibrant national economy. Rural communities provide food, energy, resources, culture and so much more to keep America running. It is time to make OUR transportation systems safer to ensure the heart of America continues to be a sustainable force in our economy. Transportation moves rural America. Rural communities need safe, viable roads and multi-modal systems to move people from place to place; and to move goods and services to markets, often across long distances. Without reliable and well-maintained transportation networks through rural areas, visitors cannot enjoy iconic travel and recreation opportunities; and businesses cannot ensure coast-to-coast delivery of goods.
