Road and street intersections form the basis of a safe and efficient local transportation system, and when well planned, maintained, and operated, can contribute to the livability and sustainability of local communities. Unfortunately, over 40 percent of local road fatal and severe injury crashes in Louisiana occur at intersections, and often the operational and accessibility needs of all users are not fully considered.  Local Public Agencies have an obligation to address these issues as part of managing their road networks, improving quality of life and reducing agency liability by providing intersections that afford safe and appropriate access to all users. This one-day class will help local agency personnel manage their intersections using best practice resources from FHWA, ITE, and other authorities.
