This sixth elaboration contains a current, updated source of information for people entering the practice and for those already practicing. While not written as a textbook, the education community uses this publication as a reference for state-of-the-art of established traffic engineering practice. It is one of the primary reference sources for study to become certified as a Professional Traffic Operations Engineer. It provides a convenient desk reference, all in one source, of the principles and proven techniques in traffic engineering. Where appropriate, reference is made to significant traffic engineering practice outside North America. Each chapter was written by notable and experienced authors, and reviewed and edited by a distinguished panel of traffic engineering experts. Edited by James L. Pline.

Now in its sixth edition, the Traffic Engineering Handbook continues to be a must have publication in the transportation industry, as it has been for the past 60 years. The new edition provides updated information for people entering the practice and for those already practicing. The handbook is a convenient desk reference, as well as an all in one source of principles and proven techniques in traffic engineering. Most chapters are presented in a new format, which divides the chapters into four areas-basics, current practice, emerging trends and information sources. Chapter topics include road users, vehicle characteristics, statistics, planning for operations, communications, safety, regulations, traffic calming, access management, geometrics, signs and markings, signals, parking, traffic demand, maintenance and studies. In addition, as the focus in transportation has shifted from project based to operations based, two new chapters have been added-“Planning for Operations” and “Managing Traffic Demand to Address Congestion: Providing Travelers with Choices.” The Traffic Engineering Handbook continues to be one of the primary reference sources for study to become a certified Professional Traffic Operations Engineerâ„¢. Chapters are authored by notable and experienced authors, and reviewed and edited by a distinguished panel of traffic engineering experts.
