Organization: Transportation Association of Canada
Location: Canada, Saskatchewan, Saskatoon
Date: Nov 3, 2017
Date End: Nov 3, 2017
Description:
The 2017 Edition of TAC’s Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads provides guidance to planners and designers in developing design solutions that meet the needs of a range of road users while addressing the context of policy decisions and the surrounding environment. Design guidelines are included for freeways, arterials, collectors, and local roads, in both urban and rural locations as well as for integrated bicyclist and pedestrian design.

This seminar provides an overview of the contents in the 2017 Guide with the focus on key changes to geometric design elements and processes provided in the Guide. It addresses critical aspects of the design process intended to provide participants with a solid understanding of those key changes as well as application and practices arising from the implementation of the 2017 Edition of the Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads.
