Simplified highway capacity manual procedures for use in planning, preliminary engineering, design and operations for urban streets and signalized intersections
John Karachepone, P.E., Planning & Preliminary Engineering Group Lead, TRB Committee ACP40
Srikanth Panguluri, P.E., M.ASCE, Transportation Engineer, CH2M Hill
Besides the detailed and complex operational procedures presented in the Highway Capacity Manual, (HCM) simplified applications for facility planning, design and basic operations are defined and discussed in the Urban Streets and Signalized Intersection Chapters of the manual. Additionally, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 825: Planning and Preliminary Engineering Applications Guide to the Highway Capacity Manual, provides a cost-effective and reliable approach to analysis and a practical introduction to the detailed methodologies of the HCM. At this workshop, participants will learn about these basic and simplified procedures and how they can be applied effectively without needing the detail and complexity of the full HCM operational procedures.
Target audience: Design and Operation Engineers, Planning Professionals, Academics and Students who apply the Highway Capacity Manual concepts and procedures.
1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Financial assessments of transport infrastructure projects and product delivery
Cesar Queiroz, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, Consultant
Goran Mladenovic, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, Associate Professor, University of Belgrade, Serbia
Financial assessments of proposed projects are essential to check whether a project would attract private investors. The workshop focuses on the review and applications of the graphical financial model of the Toolkit for PPP in Roads and Highways, and will introduce more recent multi-sector adaptations of the model, which have been used for preliminary financial evaluations when detailed data and financial arrangements are not yet fully defined. The workshop will include case studies, with numerical exercises. Attendees will deepen their understanding on the key principles to use PPPs (also known as P3s) to deliver essential transport infrastructure. Workshop participants may propose, beforehand, an existing or proposed PPP project to be analyzed during the workshop.
Target Audience: The target audience would include managers and professionals working in the transport sector, as well as academia and graduate students in transportation.
