As roundabouts become increasingly popular, and as many communities promote bicycle use, the safety of roundabouts for people bicycling is of major concern. In this project, we studied bicyclists' safety perceptions of and preferences for roundabouts with different characteristics. First, we performed...

 

Maintenance costs, while significant throughout the life-cycle of a project, may sometimes not receive full consideration as inputs to design decisions. In Phase I, this project identified research priorities in coordination with the technical advisory committee (TAC) after recommendations were formulated...

 

This study evaluates two versions of the new super diverging diamond interchange (Super DDI) design as a possible alternative to improve the performance of failing service interchanges in the Denver, Colorado, metro. Three interchanges, Interstate 225 and Mississippi Ave, Interstate 25 and 120th Ave...

 

Despite similarities to the US in terms of transportation, land use, and culture, Australia kills 5.3 people per 100,000 population on the roads each year, as compared to the US rate of 12.4. Similar trends hold when accounting for distance driven and the number of registered cars. This paper seeks to...

 

Federal and state transportation agencies set goals related to surface transportation system performance. The variability in factors influencing design criteria (e.g., driver performance, road conditions, and vehicle performance) is often large and is addressed implicitly by using "conservative" values....

 

Innovative intersections and interchanges have proliferated in the State of Utah over the past several years. Continuous flow intersections and diverging diamond interchanges seem to offer improved traffic performance and safety due to their innovative designs. However, there are no clearly defined guidelines...

 

Perception-reaction times (PRT) and deceleration rates are critical components in the design of highways and streets. This research has several objectives, including 1) evaluate differences in PRT and deceleration rates between crash and near-crash events, 2) assess the correlation between PRT and deceleration...

 

Street networks designed to support Transit Oriented Development (TOD) increase accessibility for non-motorized traffic. However, the implications of TOD supportive networks for still dominant vehicular traffic are rarely addressed. Due to this lack of research, decision making in favor of TOD supportive...

 

This document presents the application of the Highway Safety Manual (HSM) for rural local two-lane two-way highway segments in South Dakota. The calibration was based on three-year (2009-2011) crash data from 657 roadway segments constituting more than 750 miles of roadways. The calibration process includes...

 

This research compares safety, measured by expected crash frequency and severity, on road segments where design exceptions were approved and constructed to similar road segments where no design exceptions were approved or constructed. Data were collected for design exceptions in Utah in the years 2001...
