Pedestrian Crossings

Join Charles Radosta and Hermanus Steyn for an opportunity to discuss several aspects related pedestrian crossings. The discussion will also include:

• Key Research Documents • Oregon and Washington Laws • Pedestrian Characteristics • Marked vs. Unmarked Crosswalks • Crossings Types, Treatments, and Illumination • Pedestrian Beacons and Signals • Evaluation / Selecting a Treatment (NCHRP Report 562 and HCM 2010)
• Liability – Risk Management • Update from Transportation Research Board (TRB)

Charles Radosta has over 16 years of experience and has been involved in a wide range of transportation engineering projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. Charles has served as a project manager on over 100 traffic-engineering projects for KAI, including dozens of publicly funded projects and several on-call contracts. In addition to his design and project management experience, Charles also developed and served as a co-instructor for a two-day traffic signal design course for the University of Washington and Oregon State University. He currently serves as Public Works Manager for the Portland office of KAI.

Hermanus Steyn’s wide range of civil engineering experience over 17 years brings sound engineering judgment to exceptionally large and complex projects. He has experience in a variety of transportation studies, with focus on the conceptual and detailed geometric design of all types of roadways from local streets to freeways. He has developed master plans for road networks, including airport traffic circulation, corridor studies, and access management. In addition, he has prepared final traffic design and roadway plans, special provisions, and cost estimates on engineering projects. He has also conducted traffic impact analyses for a variety of developments that have addressed safety issues, access management, and on-site circulation. In addition, Hermanus is a co-instructor for 2-day traffic signal design and geometric design courses, as well as 2-hour Roundabout Workshops.

Lunch will be provided. Please note any dietary restrictions when signing up for this event.
