This report presents results of an investigation into the practice and legal issues of Road Safety Audits and Road Safety Audit Reviews (RSAs and RSARs). These safety analysis approaches focus on identifying safety issues of proposed projects (RSA) and existing roadways (RSAR). In the United States...

 

This project developed a simple and cost-effective rural RSAR program. The RSAR program was developed to identify critical safety issues and to assess the level of auditor expertise needed. The specific issues of needed safety improvements and the urgency of implementing these improvements have been...

 

This study aims to evaluate the use of the Road Safety Audit Program, by a local rural road jurisdiction, to avoid tort liability while still improving the safety of its road system. The study will provide how the RSA might be accepted within the current legal framework and will provide guidelines for...

 

Many rural governments do not have an effective safety improvement program for their roads, yet crash rates are significantly higher on rural roads than on urban, state, and federal roads. Smaller agencies seldom have the financial resources or expertise to provide comprehensive roadway safety improvement...

 

Traffic control alternatives associated with reconstruction projects on a rural interstate have been investigated in this research. Slab replacement projects, milling/resurfacing projects, and traffic controls in the vicinity of interstate ramps were analyzed. The recommendations obtained from a national...

 

In this research, a practical approach to identifying street safety needs for local governments has been developed. These governments are responsible for high street mileage carrying relatively low traffic volumes. Improving safety on these streets is given only limited focus in most small cities. Due...

 

The results of this project demonstrate the need for functional sub-classifications of rural local roads, with design parameters that address the unique characteristics of these roads. Incremental improvements are an acceptable method to increase safety on unpaved rural roads and to minimize liability.

 

The principal investigators addressed many aspects of distance learning in a recently taught TEL8 course on bridge engineering. Their efforts are outlined in this report with respect to this course. The fruit of their effort is a better and more technologically advanced method of coupling TEL8 courses...

 

This report highlights a cooperative project between the Mountain-Plains Consortium universities and the Region 8 Technology Transfer Centers. Region 8 consists of six states: Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Utah. Each of these states has a Transportation Technology Transfer...
