National State Safety Engineers and Traffic Engineers Peer to Peer Workshop

The objective of this project is to hold the first National State Safety Engineers and Traffic Engineers Peer to Peer Workshop to discuss the implementation of a variety of safety engineering and traffic operations countermeasures and initiatives including issues with implementation of new federal rules. It will be held in Schaumburg, IL at the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) District 1 office on November 14-15, 2012. The tasks include the following: (1) workshop planning, including the formation of a planning committee and the identification of state highway agencies that are taking a lead role in safety and traffic engineering practices and are willing to share their experiences with other states; (2) convening a peer-exchange meeting involving IDOT Central Office representatives, representatives from each of the IDOT districts, representatives from other states, and leading experts in the nation; and (3) identifying best practices and challenges to implementation and prepare a final report documenting the findings.
