The Federal Highway Administration and NCTCOG  hosted a three-day virtual workshop, April 27, 28 & 29, 2021.

Road Safety Audits (RSAs) are the formal safety performance examinations of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent, multidisciplinary team to qualitatively estimate and report on potential road safety issues and identify opportunities for improvements in safety for all road users.

Engineers, Planners, Public Safety Officials, Consultants, and other Community Stakeholders in the North Texas region had the opportunity to learn how to conduct RSAs, with a focus on pedestrian and bicycle safety.

The  three-day workshop, led by experienced FHWA staff, was comprised of four, two-hour sessions and offered at no charge to participants.
