CE-174 Traffic Engineering (Part #1)
CH-114 will focus the scientific evidence that has been accumulated and the modeling efforts that project what will happen.
This seminar will cover techniques and methodologies applied to collect traffic data as well as scientific and statistical techniques used to analyze and evaluate/validate data. Topics will include: traffic engineering studies involving volume (control and coverage counts), speed, travel time, delay, accident, and parking data; intersection count and delay studies, cordon and screen-line counts.

Subject: CE-174 Traffic Engineering (Part #1)
Time: 5:30 pm to 09:30 pm
Date: Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Location: New York, N.Y.
Instructor: Shane Zhang, MSTS, P.E., PTOE

CE-175 Traffic Engineering (Part #2)
This Seminar will cover fundamental concepts in the operations of signalized intersections. The HCM methodology involving the design and timing of pre-timed traffic control signals will be presented. Signal operations issues involving capacity, allocation of times for vehicular and pedestrian phases, and consideration of intersection geometry will be discussed based on real world examples and appropriate solutions to the problems will be provided.

Subject: CE-175 Traffic Engineering (Part #2)
Time: 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Date: Wednesday, October 24, 2018
