Access Management (3 credit hours/3 HSW Hours)
Access management is the control of connection points, median openings and signal spacings on the highway system to improve safety and maintain mobility.  
 
This course provides a basic background knowledge of the history, development and purpose of access management.  It reviews the Access Management Classification System.  Specifics of the classification system are provided such as corner property access, how to determine measurements, existing and modified connections and joint use connections.  
 
Design of medians is discussed to reduce the number of conflict points with the use of bi-directional left turn lanes and raised medians.  
 
The requirements for driveway connections are discussed.  The number of conflict points as it relates to the type of median opening are outlined.  Signal spacing requirements are addressed.  Driveway design covers geometrics, placement and throat length.
