This 1-day course will teach planners, engineers, and other transportation professionals how to use the new “NCDOT Pedestrian Crossing Guidance”. Developers of the guidelines will provide the latest information on research and best practices that serve as the foundation for the guidelines. The following topic areas will be covered:

  • When to Use the Guide
  • Documenting Existing Characteristics
  • Signalized Crossing Assessment
  • Unsignalized Crossing or Midblock Assessment
  • Additional/Alternative Treatments Assessment
  • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Assessment

The course will also include a group exercise where participants examine potential crossing locations and practice their newly-learned skills by applying the evaluation process.

The learning outcomes for this 1-day course are to:

  • Describe when and how to use the new NCDOT Pedestrian Crossing Guidance
  • Apply the guidelines to an existing or proposed crosswalk
  • Discuss tradeoffs and funding implications of treatment installation

This course is approved for 6 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) which will be noted on each participant’s training certificate upon course completion.
