Roads Scholar Update
Framed certificates have been mailed out for our most recent Level 2 Roads Scholar graduates, and we are working on getting Level 1 certificates ready to mail. They should go out by mid-January to agency contacts for presentation to the graduates.
Transcripts for all active Roads Scholars were emailed to each agency in early December. If you haven’t yet seen yours, please check with your employer.
To help our Roads Scholars keep track of their completed training, we have produced wallet-sized, folded tracking cards that can be used to log training as it is completed. Agency representatives who would like a supply for their employees should contact us. We will be happy to send you enough for all your Roads Scholars.

Road Diet Resources from FHWA
A roadway reconfiguration known as a Road Diet offers several high-value improvements at a low cost when applied to traditional four-lane undivided highways. In addition to low cost, the primary benefits of a Road Diet include enhanced safety, mobility and access for all road users, and a “complete streets” environment to accommodate a variety of transportation modes.
Federal Highway Administration has a number of resources available to help us all better understand Road Diets:
- Road Diets: A proven safety Countermeasure that improves safety, livability and access for ALL users (Video)
- MYTH BUSTERS: Debunking Road Diet Myths
- Did You Know a Road Can Go On a Diet?
- Road Diet Frequently Asked Questions
- Building Safer Routes to School Road Diets can improve roadway conditions near areas children frequent, like schools and parks. In these locations, safety can be drastically improved for motorists by calming traffic and improving the line of sight for children and drivers alike.
- Road Diets Myth Busters The Road Diet Myth Busters Capacity Flyer debunks the myth that Road Diets reduce capacity. In many cases, Road Diets have no effect on motor-vehicle capacity and often improve the level of service (LOS) for pedestrians and bicyclists. The flyer provides high-level guidance on how to anticipate and mitigate impacts to motor-vehicle operations.
