ITE Manitoba November Luncheon

The November meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 starting at 12:00 PM.
The luncheon will be held at the Winnipeg Winter Club, at 200 River Avenue. Parking is provided south of the building, and is accessible from Harkness Avenue and from Bell Avenue (via Donald Street). The main building entrance is on the south side of the building. Our Meeting will take place in the Riverview Room.
Our presenter this month is Clayton Rudy, P. Eng. from Morrison Hershfield.
Having completed planning and design exercises on over 250 individual roundabouts and conventional intersections across Canada, Clayton has become a nationally recognized expert in roundabout engineering. This includes policy, planning, capacity and safety analysis, first-principles-based geometric design, training, and peer review of planning and design assignments. His experience spans every province, every size of project, and every project stage from functional planning to in-service operational and safety reviews. Clayton is a member of several Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) committees and researches topics related to roundabouts and road safety. In his spare time, Clayton plays bass in a rock band, volunteers with Bike Winnipeg, and is a year-round cyclist.
Clayton’s presentation is titled: Industry Updates on Roundabout Planning and Design. Roundabout policies and industry guidelines have been evolving over the years, and recent planning and design projects have contributed to industry best practices and lessons learned. This presentation will focus on opportunities and challenges with roundabout-related work such as engineering decisions required in capacity analysis, geometric design philosophy, safety considerations in planning and policy, consideration of roundabout work during procurement of engineering services, updates from the City and Manitoba Infrastructure, and other topics. Content will highlight examples in Manitoba with added context from elsewhere in Canada and the US.
The price of the luncheon is $27.50 for members and friends and $17.50 for students. Registration and online payment MUST be completed by 12:00 PM on Friday, November 9th, 2018.
Hope to see you there!
