Highway Rail Grade Crossing Study Featured on Cover of Safety

Posted: Oct 29, 2018

A research paper on safety at highway rail grade crossings written by two NDSU students was recently featured on the cover of the journal Safety.

The paper, "Developing a Highway Rail Grade Crossing Accident Probability Prediction Model: A North Dakota Case Study" was written by Ihsah Khan, EunSu Lee, and Muhammad Khan. Khan and Khan are doctoral students in transportation and logistics at NDSU. Lee, formerly of NDSU, is on the faculty at New Jersey City University. In the study, the researchers developed a model to predict accident likelihood at crossings by incorporating various contributing factors as well as population within a five-mile radius, a factor not included in previous studies. The study will increase the accuracy of accident predictions at highway rail grade crossings and help transportation agencies improve safety at those locations.
