Event Date Organization Event Name Type Location
Dec 12 - 14, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Highways in the Coastal Environment  - Over 60,000 miles of roads in the United States are occasionally exposed to coastal surge and waves. Due to these unique design conditions, many highways and bridges suffer damage during coastal storms, including hurricanes and El Nino events. The purpose of this course is to teach important concepts and terminology of coastal science and engineering to highway engineers for use in the planning and design of coastal roads. The course is based on the Hydraulic Engineering Circular (HEC) No. 25, "Highways in the Coastal Environment" (2nd Edition), which is also used in the course as a reference manual.

Nov 28 - 30, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety  - The Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety is a combination of the information from the 2-day "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) and 2-day "Designing for Pedestrian Safety" (NHI-380090) course. This comprehensive course is designed to help state and local officials learn "HOW TO" address pedestrian safety issues in the development of a pedestrian safety action plan, and specific programs and activities tailored to their community. It is also intended to assist agencies in the further enhancement of their existing pedestrian safety plan, programs, and activities, including involving partners and stakeholders, collecting and analyzing data and information, prioritizing issues and concerns, selecting and implementing an optimal combination of education, enforcement, engineering strategies. This course goes into more detail on engineering strategies than the "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) course. This course includes two field exercises in the application of the principles, concepts, and strategies covered in the course. Also the participants will share and prioritize potential policies, programs, and strategies.

Oct 24 - 25, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Risk-Based Stewardship and Oversight (Federal Version)  - This Instructor-led Training (ILT) course will expand participants' understanding of the risk-based processes, roles and responsibilities that Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Division and Program Office personnel are using to help optimize the effective and efficient delivery of the Federal-aid Highway Program (FAHP), and to help ensure its compliance with Federal laws and regulations. This approach, as it is being implemented, is commonly known as the Risk-based Stewardship and Oversight (RBSO) approach and builds upon the risk management foundation in the agency's strategic and performance planning processes. The RBSO model is designed to identify risk-based S&O actions and initiatives at both the national and Division levels for both programs and projects.

Oct 17 - 18, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Steps to Effective Target Setting for TPM  - The passage of MAP-21 further emphasized the importance of target setting within a performance management context. MAP-21 requires State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), and public transit providers to set performance targets for the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) established national performance measures. This course explains the elements of target setting and focuses on how to set reasonable, attainable targets.

Oct 3 - 5, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: NEPA and the Transportation Decisionmaking Process  - This comprehensive, three-day, instructor-led course presents the historical background and evolution of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and related environmental laws. It discusses their influence on FHWA's policies and procedures for the transportation project development and decisionmaking process. The course examines how the framework of laws, regulations, policies, and guidance integrate social, environmental, and economic factors in making transportation project decisions that are in the best overall public interest.

Oct 3 - 5, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Public Involvement in the Transportation Decisionmaking Process  - Public involvement is much more than public hearings. It involves creative thinking as well as the willingness and ability to interact openly and sensitively to the public's preferred forms of communication and participation. Public involvement is about reaching out to and involving the public in transportation decisionmaking. The public should have a role in every phase of decisionmaking, including the design of the participation plan itself. Successful public involvement addresses the public's procedural, psychological, and substantive needs while gathering useful information. By focusing on interests--rather than positions--public involvement can become more meaningful as well as useful.

Sep 6 - 7, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: 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.

Aug 22 - 23, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Road Safety Audits/Assessments  - Performing effective road safety audits/assessments, (RSAs), improves safety and demonstrates to the public an agency's dedication to crash reduction. An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent audit team. The RSA training provides practical information on how to conduct an RSA, select a location, and build an independent, multi-disciplinary team. The costs, time, benefits, and common myths and concerns surrounding RSAs will be discussed. Participants learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a new proactive approach. Emphasis is placed on using low cost safety improvements as well as understanding the interaction between the highway and all road users. The training includes hands-on application of the training materials, which includes information on each stage of a road safety audit and easy-to-use-prompt lists. A copy of "FHWA Road Safety Audit Guidelines" is provided.

Aug 2 - 3, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Federal-Aid Highways 101 (State Version)  - During this time of economic expansion and growth, there are dramatic workforce changes taking place. Given the increasing demand by our partners and customers, it is critical to develop the knowledge of State DOT employees in the area of the Federal-aid highway development processes and regulations. Therefore, the overall course goal is to provide participants with an overview of the key elements of the Federal-Aid Highway Program. Specifically, this course focuses on general requirements and laws that govern the Federal-Aid Highway Program; processes and procedures followed in the entire project development process, including financing, planning, environment, right of way, highway and bridge design, construction, operations/ITS, maintenance, and technology; and identifying flexibility inherent in the Federal-Aid Program.
