P&N Engineer Presents on Preventative Traffic Engineering

April 16, 2013

Some of us have noticed a shift in focus for transportation: a shift away from car-centric planning and towards multi-modal travel, complete streets, and walkability.

The missing link in getting our communities to be safe and welcoming for pedestrians can be found in traffic engineering, whose reactive process and warrant procedures inhibit the timely installation of needed improvements such as mid-block crosswalks, traffic signals, and sidewalks.

No more. Prein&Newhof engineer Ariana Jeske’s presentation at the Institute of Transportation Engineers Great Lakes District Annual Meeting introduced “Preventative Traffic Engineering” as a must for walkable communities. No more can we wait for pedestrian fatalities to warrant safer infrastructure for our communities.

This presentation happened Tuesday, April 16 at 3 PM  in the Vandenberg Room of the Amway  Grand. If you missed it, or you want a second look, you can view her presentation here.Preventative Traffic Engineering
