Welcome to the Baystate Roads Program. Established in 1986, the Baystate Roads Program is a cooperative effort of the Federal Highway Administration, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The program provides technology transfer assistance to all communities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts under the direction of Program Manager, Christopher J. Ahmadjian.
This two-day workshop, developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), will provide an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The course will discuss the characteristics, accessibility and design elements of the pedestrian environment. Areas covered will include: driveways and curb ramps, street crossings, overpasses, underpasses, median and islands, intersections and roundabouts. Pedestrian signs and signals, including accessible pedestrian signals (APS) will also be covered.
E-14-002 – Minimum Length of Horizontal Curves
E-14-002 corrects a portion of Section 4.2 of the Project Development and Design Guide and creates consistency with language and guidance found in the AASHTO Green Book.
Foreman V will concentrate on the actual, specific steps needed to turn problems into solutions. We will investigate the positive attitude, determination and professionalism you will need to deal with troublesome situations. You will leave at the end of the day with two things: a Personal Action Plan for taking initiative and the conviction that you can make changes.
