Traffic Signal Configuration

Overview

This five hour course will discuss the traffic signal configuration to determine the proper phasing and signal layout to be installed at an intersection that conforms to the latest 2003 Edition to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (USDOT MUTCD). To properly design a traffic signal at an intersection, the Engineer must understand all the rules and standards that govern the installation by learning the meanings of each signal indication and what can be legally installed and what is an illegal installation.

Students of this course will be able to master the operations, the purpose of the traffic signal indication, and the relationship of the signal heads with the approaching traffic. 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 a traffic signal
  • The meaning of each signal indication and its usage
  • Left and Right Turn Signal configuration alternatives
  • Prohibited Signal Indications.
  • Flashing signal indications.
  • The placement of the signal faces with the intersection
  • Arrangement of the signal indications per approach
  • The signal configuration alternatives

The student must take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty-five (25) questions at the end of the course to obtain PDH credits.

State Board Acceptance

This course can be used by professional engineers to fulfill PDH requirements mandated by state and provincial licensing boards. Decatur Professional Development is an approved provider of continuing education in all states that pre-approve course providers. In all other states that mandate continuing education for engineers, it is the individual engineer's responsibility to determine the suitability of activities for PDH credit. The state boards typically accept online* courses that cover technical, managerial** or ethical content and which are relevant to the practice of engineering. The course must have a clear purpose or objective with a content that will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee's field of practice. For questions about your mandatory PDH requirements, visit the website of your state licensing board.

*Online courses are accepted by all state licensing boards that mandate continuing education. Other than New York (which limits online courses to 18 PDH) and Iowa (which limits online courses to 6 PDH), there are no limits placed by other states on the number of hours that can be earned through online continuing education. Consult with your state licensing board if you have any questions about the acceptability of online courses.

**The New York State Board of Engineers does not accept general office management courses, but will accept project management courses that are offered by an approved provider and that are technical in nature and contribute to the engineer's professional practice.Please Note: Continuing Education credits for this course are awarded as PDH (Professional Development Hour Credits).
