The Federal Highway Administration Intersection & Interchange Geometrics

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative is designed to identify and deploy innovation aimed at reducing project delivery time, enhancing safety and protecting the environment. In 2012, FHWA chose Intersection & Interchange Geometrics (IIG) to feature as one of the innovative technologies in EDC-2. Specifically, IIG consists of a family of alternative intersection designs that improve intersection safety while also reducing delay, and at lower cost and with fewer impacts than comparable traditional solutions. As part of the effort to mainstream these intersections, FHWA has produced a series of guides to help transportation professionals routinely consider and implement these designs. Concurrent with this Displaced Left Turn (DLT) Informational Guide, FHWA developed and published guides for three other designs: Median U-turn (MUT), Restricted Crossing U-turn (RCUT), and Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI).

Sign-in & networking begins at 11:45 am, and the presentation will start at noon. Drinks and cookies will be provided. Please bring your own bag lunch. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Jacki Gulczynski at 541.312.8300 or

We hope you can join us!

About the Speaker

Presented By Jeff Whitman, PE, Kittelson & Associates, Inc.
Jeff is a transportation engineer with experience focused on transportation planning and design engineering. He is involved at all stages of roadway design, including at conceptual and preliminary stages. During these stages, Jeff prepares functional roadway and intersection layouts for design alternatives, assessing potential impacts and project trade-offs. Jeff leads and manages the development of final construction plans, specifications, and estimates for varying traffic and roadway design elements. He balances his design background with a wide range of planning and operations work, including alternatives analysis for intersections and roadway corridors, bike and pedestrian planning, and development traffic impact analysis.
