What’s the difference between a traditional roundabout and a turbo roundabout? TRB is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:30 ET to answer this question. A turbo roundabout has the same operating characteristics as modern roundabouts but utilizes different geometrics to address the conflicts associated with the common crash types in multilane roundabouts. This webinar will discuss international experiences with turbo roundabouts and identify key considerations for U.S. implementation. The content is based on a technical summary by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Operational Effects of Geometrics and Geometric Design.

To receive PDH credits, please register as an individual and sign into the webinar from your personal computer. After doing this, you may join your group in a meeting room. To be eligible for the credits, individuals must remain signed in for the entire webinar, including for any question and answer session following the presentations.
In addition, advance registration is available until just before the webinar starts. Once the webinar starts, you will be unable to submit your registration. Individuals that are registered for a webinar but do not receive their confirmation emails due to their organization’s internal firewalls should contact the TRB Helpdesk (MyTRB@nas.edu) for assistance in signing in.
Individuals registered as Florida PEs are no longer required to email TRB with your license number to report your attendance. Instead, please use your certificate that TRB provides through RCEP.net as verification of your attendance to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers.
Please check with your licensing board to ensure that TRB webinar PDHs are approved by your board.
