Workshop
Brian Toombs, Burgess and Niple, Inc.
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Geometric Design (AFB10)
Standing Committee on Freeway Operations (AHB20)
Standing Committee on Vehicle-Highway Automation (AHB30)
Standing Committee on Managed Lanes (AHB35)
Standing Committee on Operational Effects of Geometrics (AHB65)
Standing Committee on Tort Liability and Risk Management (AL070)
Standing Committee on Pedestrians (ANF10)
Standing Committee on Bicycle Transportation (ANF20)

As continued research on connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) shows promise for implementation, questions arise on how they may influence the future of geometric design of roadways and intersections. This workshop will explore possible scenarios that could change the geometric design process for all users and will facilitate discussion on how the criteria could be revised. Current research will be examined using multiple brief presentations. Finally, four breakout groups—focused on freeways and interchanges, intersections, highways, and methodology—will discuss foreseen changes and proactive strategies to ensure that geometric design meets the safety needs for all users during all phases of CAV implementation.

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

With the continued research on CAVs showing promise for implementation, questions are becoming more

prevalent regarding how this may influence the future of geometric design of roadways and intersections. This

workshop will explore possible scenarios that could change the Geometric Design process for all users and

discuss how the criteria could be revised. Current research will be discussed during the workshop using

multiple brief presentations. Finally, 4 break-out groups, focused on freeways & interchanges, intersections,

highways, and methodology, will be formed to discuss changes that could be foreseen and proactive strategies

to ensure that geometric design meets the safety needs for all users during all phases of CAV implementation.
