Designing for Pedestrian Safety 201 Workshop
Online Registration Opens Soon

Pedestrian Safety in North Central Texas
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety has been working to aggressively reduce pedestrian deaths by focusing extra resources in the cities and states with the highest rates of pedestrian crashes and fatalities.  FHWA has designated the Dallas-Fort Worth area as a focus city for pedestrian safety and is offering technical assistance and training to address the pedestrian safety challenges throughout our region. 

 Workshop facilitators will highlight best practices and local examples addressing the following topics:

  • Intersection Geometry (Curb Extensions)
  • Crossing Islands and Raised Medians
  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons
  • Leading Pedestrian Intervals
  • Pedestrian Hybrid Beacons
  • Marked Crosswalks and Crosswalk Enhancements
  • Higher-Speed Multilane Arterials (with emphasis on lighting and interchanges)

There is no charge to attend. You may purchase a box lunch for $10 during registration, or opt to bring your own lunch.

Seating is limited!

To ensure your seat please register early for one of the workshop locales.
Registration opens soon.

(Note: The same material will be presented at both the Fort Worth and Mesquite locations.)
