Mark Johnson has extensive experience providing training in roundabout design and implementation. When designing roundabouts, challenges include balancing overall operations and safety with business circulation and access needs, adjacent land-use, livability, and pedestrian safety objectives.
Mark’s design courses teach participants how roundabouts assist in meeting these challenging, and often competing, needs within our built environment. The courses provide the design professional with the necessary knowledge, skills, and information to be able to adequately understand the design requirements and implications of roundabout applications.
In Mark’s three-day training courses, day one focuses on the operational tools and procedures using the HCM model and the Rodel capacity analysis tool, with hands on-exercises to understand how to properly perform operational analysis and determine necessary laneage for North American design and traffic analysis. Day two expands on the operational component to then understand how the operational and design components are interrelated with correct roundabout applications. Day three combines the two days of knowledge to tie together and underscore the interrelationship between geometric design elements, traffic planning, and operational analysis.
