Transportation and Communities 2018: Academy Edition ● September 13 - 14, 2018 at Portland State University
In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we’re trying something a little different. Instead of brief sessions that introduce you to a topic– we will be offering fifteen half-day workshops that focus on skill building and providing the tools to apply the latest research to practice. These will be hands-on, immersive learning experiences in a small classroom setting. Hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. Supported by our U.S. DOT grant-funded consortium: the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC).

⇨CLICK HERE TO REGISTER⇦ This event is a la carte, and pricing is per workshop. You may attend as few as one, or as many as four workshops. Questions? Contact us at asktrec@pdx.edu.  Let us know if you’re a student interested in volunteering, and we’ll be in touch later this summer.
  • Half-Day Workshop (general admission): $95
  • Half-Day Workshop (student rate / elected government officials rate): $50

This session will present the new analysis procedures incorporated into HCM 6th Edition. These new procedures cover topics such as travel time reliability, multimodal facilities, freeways, alternative intersections and interchanges, and roundabouts. The session will also provide an overview of the new Planning and Preliminary Engineering Applications Guide to the HCM. This guide provides planning level procedures for many of the methodologies within the HCM.

  • Learn, at a high level, about the major changes and additions to the HCM
  • Learn about the resources that help support the HCM 6th Edition
  • Identify the planning tasks to which HCM methods can potentially be applied
  • Learn about the case studies provided in the Guide and how they demonstrate the application of HCM planning methods to a variety of planning tasks
This half-day workshop is eligible for 3.5 hours of professional development credit through AICP (see our provider summary). We can provide an electronic attendance certificate for other types of certification maintenance.
