This course is designed to provide those who plan, operate, design, construct, or administer surface transportation or land use systems with a basic understanding of the concepts and tools available to them, the benefits of successful access management, and the costs of unsuccessful access management.
This four-day virtual course provides more in-depth content targeted for technical professionals. This course is intended to attract participants beyond traditional state and local agency technical staff, including: planners, engineers, permit specialists, legal counsel, and project managers associated with transportation planning, operations, design, maintenance, and development review.
The latter part of the course is designed to provide additional and more advanced instruction to participants than the shorter foundational FHWA-NHI133078 course and is for those who desire to deepen their understanding of access management through more computationally-driven applications of the course materials.
