Event  Austin, TX 
Mar 28 - 30, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Training: 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.

Apr 4 - 5, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Interactive Highway Safety Design Model  - This course instructs highway design project managers, planners, designers, and traffic and safety reviewers in the application of the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) software and provides guidance on interpretation of the output. IHSDM is a suite of software tools to evaluate safety of two-lane rural highways. The software, developed for FHWA, was released in 2003 after several years of research and development to provide state-of-the-art techniques for safety analysis. IHSDM contains five tools that can be used to apply the most recent safety analysis techniques in a relatively straightforward and automated manner. For more information about IHSDM, go to http://www.tfhrc.gov/safety/ihsdm/ihsdm.htm. Participants gain hands-on experience with the software. Therefore, the training facility must be equipped with computers. There should be no more than two participants per computer. Minimum system specifications for the computers are as follows: Operating System - Microsoft Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 Professional; HTML Browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or Foxfire; Spreadsheet Program, Microsoft Excel or equivalent; Hardware - At least 450 MHz Pentium III (or equivalent) CPU, 256 MB RAM or greater desirable, 800x600 high colors (16 bit) display; and 300 MB free disk space

Apr 17 - 21, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: FHWA Basic Contracting Officers Representative (COR) Training  - Contracting Officer's Representatives (COR) are integral to the acquisition process and perform critical acquisition functions; FHWA relies on CORs to help the Contracting Officer (CO) monitor work conducted under contracts in order to meet the Agency mission. Because of this important role, FHWA needs to develop the knowledge of their new and mid-career hires in the area of acquisition management. The overall course goal is to address the essential core competencies, outlined by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP), required for CORs to effectively monitor Federal Government contracts. The class is tailored to meet the specific needs of FHWA CORs with examples and content directed to common contract types and issues faced by FHWA and Federal Lands Programs. Participants who successfully complete the course will earn 40 Continuous Learning Points in support of a Level II FAC-COR certification.

May 22 - 23, 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.

May 22 - 24, 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. The course emphasizes the Council on Environmental Quality and FHWA's regulations; FHWA policy and guidance for implementing NEPA, Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act, and related environmental requirements. It discusses the NEPA Essential Elements in detail, including purpose and need, alternatives, impacts, mitigation, public involvement, interagency coordination and documentation. The course presents the requirements and considerations used to decide whether to prepare an environmental impact statement, an environmental assessment or determination that a project is categorically excluded from either. While this is not a course in environmental document writing, it presents the key principles for preparing high quality environmental documents, including the core principles from the FHWA/AASHTO/American Council of Engineering Companies Improving the Quality of Environmental Documents and the FHWA IQED initiative. The course also includes group exercises that allow participants to apply the course concepts to a realistic project scenario involving several transportation, social and environmental considerations.

Apr 6, 2017  Transportation Research Board  TRB Webinar: The Evolving Surface Transportation Maintenance and Operations Workforce Part II: Developing a More Versatile Workforce Through Enhanced Training and Technology  - TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, April 6, 2017, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET about training and career development strategies that may help build and sustain a highly effective maintenance and operations workforce. This is the second in a series of webinars on surface transportation workforce. The first webinar was conducted in August 2016. The surface transportation maintenance and operations workforce is facing major changes as older employees retire in large numbers and younger employees replace them, thus requiring new approaches to ensure a proficient and productive workforce. Additionally, the job duties and responsibilities are changing due to advanced technologies and more stringent regulations. This webinar will address training needs for the current workforce and ways to engage new employees. This webinar will also discuss relevant NCHRP studies.

Apr 19, 2017  Transportation Research Board  TRB Webinar: Reconstructing Old Traffic Circles into Modern Roundabouts  - TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that will explore state efforts to convert old traffic circles into modern roundabouts, which can be safer and more efficient. The first modern roundabouts were introduced into the United States in the 1990s. While the number of roundabouts in the U.S. is growing, the public and elected officials sometimes confuse them with traffic circles built in the 1940s and 1950s. These traffic circles may be confusing to navigate as a driver. The presenters will also discuss the design basics behind the conversions.

May 24 - 25, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Pedestrian Facility Design  - To emphasize the importance of planning for pedestrians, the course focuses on case examples involving corridor and intersection design issues. Participants are engaged through lecture, discussion, video demonstrations of problem areas in corridors and intersections, small group problem identification, and the development of design alternatives. This training was developed to provide information and application opportunities to those involved in the design of pedestrian facilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires newly constructed and altered sidewalks to be accessible and usable by people with disabilities, and accessibility improvements need to be implemented for existing facilities.
