T3 Webinar Overview: ITS Applications for Bicycles and Pedestrians. The Nation's transportation network continues to grow as a multi-modal entity that strives to improve safety and mobility for it's users. As the system expands due to growing populations, pedestrians and bicyclists become a more integral part of the network. As such planning, designing, and operating bicycle and pedestrian facilities continue to play important roles in the transportation industry, especially with the use of ITS applications.

Every Day Counts (EDC) Exchange for Local and Tribal Agencies 
Locally Administered Federal-Aid Projects: Stakeholder Partnering for Success. The Federal-aid Highway Program contains many moving parts and pieces: Effective communication, coordination, and cooperation among all involved parties are essential. For the over 6,000 Local Public Agencies (LPAs) that play such a significant role in the delivery of the program, achieving clarity regarding FHWA requirements for LPA administered projects is critical, and "having a seat at the table" can facilitate that clarity.

Stakeholder Partnering offers LPAs an opportunity to join with their state and federal colleagues in navigating the complexities of the Federal-aid program and successfully deliver projects. The collaboration among representatives at each government level helps ensure the program encompasses the needs of all involved. If you are interested in participating in this exchange, please respond via email to to confirm.

Fri., Dec. 11, 2015 9 AM to 10:30 AM Pacific

Sight distance: Sight distance is important in the design and opperation of various types of road facilities. Poor sight distance can have adverse safety impacts and can result in collisions. Higher may result in tort litigation against the agency that owns the right of way. This webinar will identify the different types of sight distance that are important and the guidelines that are applicable to each type of sight distance. The discussion will include examples of locations where poor sight distance exists and explain the potential impacts of inadiquate sight distance on various types of road users such as pedestrians and bicyclists.
