The purpose of this course is to review and understand the needs of pedestrians in the modern transportation environment. The course will review national and Pennsylvania pedestrian safety data, pedestrian mobility characteristics, and pedestrian behaviors. It will also examine federal and state guidelines for pedestrian facilities, including sidewalks, crosswalks, and other features. Finally, the course will review Federal Highway Administration and PennDOT programs to improve pedestrian safety and discuss how to implement those elements locally.
Workshop activities will encourage participants to improve pedestrian safety, support walking activities in communities, determine when and how to mark crosswalks, improve the visibility of pedestrian facilities, and make physical road improvements for pedestrian safety.
Intended Audience: This course is intended for local officials responsible for the planning, design, and implementation of pedestrian facilities. This includes municipal managers, elected officials, public works directors, roadmasters, and code enforcement officers.
