Project Summary

The University of Minnesota will work with Bolton & Menk, Inc. and the Minnesota Department of Transportation to develop a training program for the application of the unsignalized pedestrian crossing methodology in the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual. The Minnesota Traffic Observatory (MTO) at the University of Minnesota will assist in collecting data for analysis at four sites with differing traffic volumes, crossing types, and pedestrian volumes. The data collected will be used by Bolten and Menk to develop training curriculum and a 10-12 page guidebook. The Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) at the University of Minnesota will provide editorial and graphic design services for the final publication of the training guidebook. CTS will also plan the required logistics for delivery of a four-hour training session for up to 30 participants.
