This six-hour in-person course combines the previously held half-day “Speed Management” and “Using Your Tools to Develop a Speed Management Strategy” workshops. It will discuss roadway design and its relation to speed, setting speed limits, data and speed analyses, and the benefits of a comprehensive speed management program. In addition, the course will include a hands-on interactive approach to speed management through several local case studies, integrating both completed and proposed projects discussing speed limit setting and alternative design implications. This course is funded through a special grant from the CT Department of Transportation.
