Join us June 9 and 10, 2020 for this FREE online webinar where we will provide an overview and resources for local agencies to understand the importance of roadside safety, to identify areas of safety concern and to determine what safety improvements may be most appropriate. The focus of the workshop is on problem identification, treatments and practical applications of roadside safety. In general, the emphasis will be on low-cost improvements, but other higher cost solutions may be covered.

Note that this course will take place over the course of two days, with each training each day running from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.  Part 1 will be on June 9 and Part 2 on June 10. Attendance is required at both for a certificate.
