Workshops

Our primary service is training. We are on the road with our workshops, traveling all over New York State each year. We schedule the majority of our training sessions in the spring, from late March through May, and in the fall during the months of September and October.

Low-Cost Safety Improvements

Instructor: Ted Green, PE

This course is designed to help local road agencies, engineers and public works personnel reduce the incident of traffic crashes through the application of practical low cost "best safety practices" geared to local/rural roads. Many of these best practices feature the efficient use of traffic control devices and can be incorporated into routine day-to-day activities.

 

Topics covered
• Making roads safer, separating myths from reality
• How to read a road
• The U in the MUTCD
• Safer horizontal curves
• Safer roadsides
• Safer intersections
• Safety for pedestrians
• Systemic approach to safety
• Inspection and maintenance of traffic control devices
• Is your old road ready for today’s car?

 

Registration for Engineering Workshops


The cost to attend an engineering workshop is normally $75.00, PDH credit hours are an additional $20.00. Credit cards are now accepted. Call 607-255-8033 for more info!

 

The registration fee includes lunch, breaks and course materials. To accommodate as many municipalities as possible, we guarantee up to 3 registrants per organization, as space allows. All others will be waitlisted. If space is available two weeks prior to the workshop, we will register those waitlisted in order of date received.

 


Please submit registrations at least two weeks prior to the workshop. At two weeks out, if the registration numbers are low, we have to cancel to avoid paying a penalty to the facility and caterer. If we cancel a workshop, and you have submitted payment, we will contact you about the refund procedure.

 


If you must cancel your registration, please call us at least 3 business days prior to the workshop date to avoid payment. This allows us to adjust our food order or offer your place to someone on our waiting list. Substitutes are welcome at any time.

 

Timing of Workshops
Workshops typically run from 8.00am to 4pm. Sign-in starts at 7:45am.

 

How do we plan where to hold our workshops?
In November of each year the Local Roads program staff plans up to 60 training events. We decide the locations of our workshops based on several factors:
