This two-day advanced seminar in the geometric design of roads will look directly at the complexities of applied design. It is intended for experienced designers, and is based on nine distinct real-world Canadian road geometric design challenges. Seminar participants will be expected to participate actively in assessing and shaping potential design solutions as well as discussing the actual final designs from the standpoint of practicality, potential user challenges, and general risks and cost-effectiveness.

The nine real-world examples include:

  • Design of an innovative intersection for an arterial/expressway in a constrained urban area

  • Bicycle facility road safety audit for a freeway corridor environment

  • Freeway loop design

  • Interim termination of a staged freeway construction project

  • Context-sensitive road safety audit for a rural parkway

  • Incorporating new bike lanes in an established older urban area

  • “To widen, or not to widen”: A bridge widening design forensics case

  • Truck escape ramps: A real-world example

  • 2+1 roadways: Can you import Europe? A case study
