transportation environment. We recently organized into a series of subcommittees: Innogmeth@optonline.net
vation/Developing Trends; Urban Mobility; SimCAP Standing Committee, ITS Operations/
Data Analytics, Global (Traffic Engineering Outside North America), Traffic Signal Design and
Vice Chairs

Operations, and Traffic Control Devices Design. We also have two Standing Committees under
christa.greene@stantec.com
our umbrella, each of which has their own administrative structure: Roundabouts Standing
Committee and Joint Rail Grade Crossing Standing Committee. Last year, the Traffic EngineerChuck Huffine
ing Council sponsored seven webinars and finalized a white paper on wrong-way driving, in

addition to other ongoing activities. This year, we are committed to sponsor and develop at
least 10 webinars. Our on-going activities are as follows:
Traffic Engineering Handbook Webinar Series - A recent survey concluded that
the ITE Traffic Engineering Handbook was the second most valuable ITE product, after the ITE
Trip Generation Manual. Last year, TENC launched an effort to prepare webinars for each chapter
of this manual. In 2018, three webinars on chapters were presented. In 2019, four webinars
on chapters were held, and at least one more is planned for December. There are a total of
15 chapters available for webinar development. The Professional Development Committee is
considering developing a Learn as You Go online training program for the Traffic Engineering
Handbook in the future, with the chapter by chapter webinars used as a starting point.
Right Turn on Red Informational Report - In 2019, the TENC launched a committee to develop a new Right Turn on Red Informational Report (IR). The project proposal form
was submitted and approved in May 2019. At their meeting in August, the Board approved
the TENC's request to rescind the existing recommended practice. In late September/early
October 2019, a survey was conducted which was focused on assessing the current state of
practice for the prohibition of turns on red. The results of the survey will be used to develop a
new IR. The goal is to submit a draft IR to ITE for review in mid-2020.
Route Guidance Data - In late 2018, the TENC launched a project based on an
Roundabouts
emerging issue, Route Guidance Data, which addresses the impact of route guidance on our
roadway network, including unintended consequences on local neighborhoods.
Wrong Way Driving - In 2018, the TENC launched a project
regarding best practices to prevent wrong-way driving. A white paper
was prepared and completed in 2019. A webinar was held in 2019.

for SimCAP, and they are charged with providing guidance for traffic analysis

practices for analyzing roundabouts.
Hot Topics Webinars - The Traffic Engineering Council will be
developing webinars based on webinar member requests. These include
Signal Timing Practices for Municipalities, Adaptive Traffic Systems, Warrants for
