In Access Management, you'll learn ...
- The purpose and history of access management
- Access management classifications
- The interchange and connection review process
- The design and placement of medians and median openings
- Driveway design, including throat length and placement in relation to the median openings and neighboring streets
Access management is the practice of managing the location, number and spacing of connections, median openings and traffic signals on the highway system.
In this course, the history of access management is discussed including the development of Florida Administrative (FAC) Rules 14-96 and 14-97. These rules provide the two main access management tables: Access Classification and Standards Limited Access Facilities Interchanges and Controlled Access Facility Classification.
Access management measurements between driveways, median openings and signals are defined. The corner clearance table provides the minimum connection spacing for corner properties. Reasonable access is discussed as it relates to connections on the State Highway System.
The interchange and driveway connection review processes are discussed. Driveway connection requirements are discussed in detail. The different types of median openings are discussed in relation to the conflict points created by the turning vehicles. There is also a discussion of the relationship between access to properties and through traffic movement. Signal spacing is defined as it relates to access management.
Access management design topics such as geometrics, driveway placement, throat length, crossing queue and positive turn lane offset are also included to provide a basic review of access management design as it relates to site development.
The course is designed to provide a basic knowledge of Access Management from which a person can use this information in traffic studies and roadway design.
