WHAT THIS IS ABOUT

Transportation engineers have developed a system to identify and address roadway safety problems. The Highway Safety Analysis workshop will assist local and state level agencies with relevant information on the stepwise procedure.

The course's focus is on the identification of hazardous locations and counter-measures for alleviating the safety hazards. Other tasks that are needed to accomplish this goal include the management and analysis of crash records and also a before-after analysis of the results of implemented counter-measures.

This course will prepare one for taking charge of a roadway safety program either as an employee of an agency or a consultant. The topics covered by this course are included in the scope of the examination for PTOE certificate of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course is for technicians, local government employees, consultants and engineers involved with safety problems of roads.

INSTRUCTOR

David Metzger, Traffic Engineer (retired), Bristol Metropolitan Planning Organization/City of Bristol, Tennessee
Mr. Metzger worked on a variety of issues for the Bristol Transportation Planning Organization, such a long-range transportation planning and modeling. In his role as traffic engineer for the City of Bristol, Tennessee, his duties included the collection of data for speeds, delay, and volumes for a variety of studies, such as setting safe posted speeds of curves, determining on-street parking limits and signage based on sight distance, collection of data for traffic signal warrant analyses, neighborhood traffic studies, and collection of field data to apply for long-range transportation planning. He was involved in the selection of countermeasures based on those data findings. He holds a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering and an M.S. degree in Transportation Engineering, both from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and retired after over 37 years of experience in Bristol. He is a Fellow of ITE and held P.E. certification in both Tennessee and Virginia.

TENNESSEE ACADEMY FOR TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING (TATE)

This course is one of six courses that form the core requirement for the Tennessee Academy for Transportation Engineering (TATE) certificate. TATE provides continuing education for engineers, planners, designers and technicians. The program focuses on the basic design of transportation facilities, the evaluation of traffic operations, and the collection of data to support various transportation studies. Successful completion of the required curricula of core and elective courses, confers TATE certification. For more information, contact Airton Kohls at 865-974-5255.
