This four hour course will discuss Pedestrian Signal Configurations for providing pedestrian indications at an intersection for the safe crossing of pedestrians with conflicting traffic movements that conforms to the 2009 Edition to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (USDOT MUTCD).

The 2009 MUTCD added new material and revised a number of sections that were in previous MUTCD's. The following pedestrian signal requirements are stated in the updated 2009 MUTCD.

It is necessary to conduct a pedestrian count across all approaches to the intersection to determine the number of pedestrians crossing, the type pedestrian (elderly, children, adults, and/or handicap persons with different types of mobility impairments).

Attendee of this course will be able to master the operations, the purpose of the pedestrian signal indications, and the relationship to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. These relationships if not properly mastered can cause vehicle and pedestrian accidents within the intersection involving years of litigation.

At the conclusion of this course, the student will be able to determine:

  • The regulations governing the installation of Pedestrian Signals
  • The meaning of each Pedestrian Signal indication and its usage
  • The placement of the Pedestrian Signal within the intersection
  • When to use Accessible Pedestrian Signals and Pedestrian Detectors
  • The use of In-Roadway Lights as an alternate to midblock signals
  • The use of Hawk Signals
