Item Detail
Maintenance of Drainage Features for Safety (1 PDH)

This course offers professional development hours (PDHs). You will see the PDHs on your course completion certificate, which also serves as documentation of your attendance. PDH requirements vary, therefore, it is up to you to determine whether or not this particular course qualifies under your State or board requirements.

Course overview: This course highlights common roadway drainage problems that can cause an unsafe condition and suggests inspection methods and corrective action. Maintaining roadway drainage is important for safety and for ensuring the long life of the roadway as it prevents erosion of the roadway, saturation of the subbase, and damage to roadway structures. The training is broken into two modules:
• Module 1: Effects of Drainage describes common roadway safety hazards and how to recognize drainage problems.
• Module 2: Safe Drainage Features and Work Zones covers solutions to common roadway safety issues and work zone safety.

This training is not intended to be a design guide. Participants may want to contact their State Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) for more details on drainage design.

Training level:
This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels II, III, and IV.

Target audience:
This training is ideal for local road agency maintenance workers who want to understand the importance of maintaining and upgrading drainage features on their road system to avoid an unsafe condition.

Learning outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• Identify problems created by ponding and standing water on the roadway;
• Describe safety issues related to ditches and side slopes;
• Describe how drainage features can become safety hazards;
• Identify methods for identifying drainage problems;
• Recall conditions to look for during field inspections;
