Topics & Resources

TIC offers workshops in topics including municipal engineering, traffic and highway safety, work zone and flagger safety, and much more. In addition to workshops, TIC offers some great resources about relevant transportation and roadway topics.

Bridges

Wisconsin has nearly 14,000 bridges spanning state and local roadways, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Of these, almost 9,000 are located along local roadways and are the responsibility of local governments. TIC offers resources and workshops in bridge design and construction, inspections, maintenance, bridge rail and safety hardware for local government officials and others involved in road maintenance.

Drainage

At least 90% of a road’s problems are caused by water. However, proper drainage can preserve road strength and lengthening its life. Learn about culverts, ditches, detention and retention basins, environmental permits and regulations, erosion control, inlets and catch basins, and storm sewers in a course from TIC.

Road Safety

Keeping Wisconsin’s roadways safe for drivers and highway workers is a top priority. Learn about guardrail and safety hardware, low-cost safety improvements, risk and liability, traffic enforcement, worker safety, work zones, and speed limits. Courses in highway safety will teach you how to use proven safety countermeasures to prevent crashes and how to assess your community’s crash data.

Pavements

Solve pavement design problems for both asphalt and concrete pavements with a course from TIC. You will also learn about pavement inspection and ratings, management and budgeting, gravel, unimproved roads, and much more.

Supervision and Management

Improve your supervisory management skills, whether you’re dealing with an emergency or working with personnel. Also, learn about the environmental impacts on your roadways, utilities and permits, risk and liability, road planning and design. You’ll also learn effective techniques for capital planning and budgeting.

Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation

Wisconsin spends nearly $1 billion annually to maintain its roadways. In a time when budgets are being scrutinized, how can you make the most of your money and keep roads in good shape? Learn about pavement and winter road maintenance, roadside design, erosion control, subgrade soils and geosynthetics.

Traffic Engineering and Operations

Learn how to solve common traffic problems, mitigate negative impacts on traffic safety and congestion, design safe and efficient parking lots, and much more. Other course topics include bicycles and pedestrians, intelligent transportation systems, intersections, pavement markings, roundabouts, street lighting, traffic enforcement, traffic engineer studies, traffic signals and signs, and speed limits.

Work Zones

Road construction and work zones can be hazardous not only for drivers, but for workers on the job site. By ensuring any disruptions for traffic flow are reduced, you can minimize liabilities and prevent accidents. Learn how to meet Wisconsin requirements for work zone traffic control, improving the safety of your workers and all road users. Specific topics include flagging, mobile work zones, work zone design and planning, work zone standards and regulations.
