Design speed has a major impact on all facets of road and street design and is typically the first critical design element to be determined on a project. However, the factors included in that decision—and even the very definition of design speed and other speed measures—are not fully understood by many practitioners. This webinar will explore various aspects of vehicular speed with an emphasis on design speed and the flexibilities available in its selection.
Participants may attend in person or watch the webinar online.
