The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Safety Center) hosted a FREE, 1.5-hour online webinar.
This webinar provided an overview of the Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks Guide, published in January 2017 by the Federal Highway Administration.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants were able to:
- Describe the general uses and benefits of this new guidance.
- Understand the three topic areas in which contextual guidance is provided.
- Identify the speed, volume, roadway types, and land use areas in which each treatment is best suited for application.
This training was directed towards a very broad safety audience including, but not limited to, law enforcement, planners, engineers, first responders, elected officials, public health, tourism agencies, and safety culture experts. Participants should have some basic familiarity with transportation safety.
