Developed in conjunction with the 5th revision of the FHWA Traffic Monitoring Guide (TMG 2013), this new course replaces NHI 151018 and offers guidance on how to manage a successful traffic monitoring program. The training begins with an overview of Federal traffic monitoring regulations and a presentation of the host State's traffic monitoring program. Subsequent lessons introduce federal guidance, best practices, and recommended procedures for developing a data collection framework for traffic volume, speed, classification, weight, and non-motorized programs. The course also incorporates related traffic monitoring elements of transportation management and operations, traffic data needs and uses, traffic data submittal requirements, and relevant traffic monitoring research. The critical importance of quality data collection is emphasized to support project planning, programming, design, and maintenance decisions-- all of which affect the Nation's transportation network.
