NJTPA and Together North Jersey are pleased to partner with FHWA to offer a one-day workshop that explores how Road Diets can improve safety, operations, and livability in communities.

What is a Road Diet? Four-lane undivided roadways often experience a large number of crashes–especially between high-speed through traffic, left-turning vehicles, and other road users. One treatment for addressing this safety concern is a Road Diet, which typically involves converting an existing four-lane segment to three lanes: a through lane in each direction and a center two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL).

Who should attend?

  •    Transportation Engineers and Planners
  •    Pedestrian & Bicycle and Safe Routes to School Coordinators
  •    Local Police, Fire, EMS and Transit
  •    Community Leaders

What will you learn?

  •    Learn about the different types of Road Diets and why they work.
  •    Identify roads that are good candidates for Road Diets.
  •    Learn what segment and intersection design elements are affected by a Road Diet.
  •    Practice reallocating street space for other uses, including non-motorized user needs.
