Training and Technology Transfer for Accessability Guidelines for Roundabouts and Channelized Turn Lanes

The objective of this research is to develop and conduct a training and technology transfer program for the guidebook developed under National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 03-78B, Guidelines for the Application of Crossing Solutions at Roundabouts and Channelized Turn Lanes to Assist Pedestrians with Vision Disabilities. The key components of this training program are to (1) develop a public affairs package, (2) prepare training materials, (3) teach 6 in-person workshops per year over a two-year period for 12 training sessions (including one pilot workshop), and (4) deliver 3 webinars over the two-year period. The materials developed as part of the NCHRP 3-78B project will serve as the basis for this training program. The audiences to be included in these workshops may include engineers/administrators who may be responsible for making decisions about roundabout and channelized turn lane designs and installations, and Orientation & Mobility (O&M) professionals who wish to understand better the tradeoffs and considerations of roundabouts and channelized turn lanes for pedestrian access. Tasks are as follows: (1) Work Plan and Project Management: Prepare a work plan and schedule for the delivery of the in-person training courses, as well the webinars. (2) Public Affairs Package: Prepare a public affairs package with handouts/brochures for the public that can be provided to course participants. (3) Develop Training Materials: Prepare the training materials for delivery in a one-day in-person workshop. (4) Prepare and Deliver 3 Webinars: Prepare an abbreviated version of the training materials for delivery in a one-hour webinar. (5) Deliver Training: Deliver the in-person training using the materials developed in Task 3; and (6) Training Summary and Final Materials: At the completion of the project, the team will summarize the training delivery, participant feedback, and other project activities in a training summary report. The report will be supplemented with final training materials that have been revised based on participant feedback.
