Gresham, Smith and Partners announces that Senior Transportation Planner Michael Dorweiler, AICP, will present at the Florida Section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (FSITE) Summer Meeting on June 22 in Naples. Dorweiler will highlight GS&P’s work to evaluate unsignalized high crash locations within the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) District Seven and identify and prioritize improvements to address the safety issues. 

“I’m looking forward to discussing the need for continuous safety monitoring at intersections and strategies for creating safer roadways with my industry peers,” commented Dorweiler. “As transportation engineers and planners, it’s important that we encourage safe environments that support motorized and non-motorized modes of transportation.”

FDOT D7 High Crash Locations and Solutions
Presentation by Michael Dorweiler, AICP
 
While there has been an emphasis on improving safety along corridors, it is equally important to focus on identifying potential safety issues at intersections. It’s not unusual that vehicle crashes often occur at intersections; intersections are a point in our roadway system where various traffic movements and modes and transportation directly conflict with one another. Signalized intersections naturally create a risk, but unsignalized intersections can pose a more serious driving hazard. Dorweiler will present an overview of GS&P’s approach to evaluating more than 100 unsignalized high crash locations within Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Seven and screening potential short-term, mid-term and long-term improvements.  

“I’m looking forward to discussing the need for continuous safety monitoring at intersections and strategies for creating safer roadways with my industry peers. As transportation engineers and planners, it’s important that we encourage safe environments that support motorized and non-motorized modes of transportation.”
