This study presents the application of the Highway Safety Manual (HSM) to rural state highways in South Dakota and provides important guidance and empirical results regarding how to calibrate HSM models. Calibration guidelines have been developed to facilitate future calibration activities. The calibration...

 

Over the last two decades, the use of advanced scientific and data-driven statistical methods has been continuously evolving to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on our roadways. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Highway Safety Manual (HSM) was...

 

North Dakota crash reports show that nearly 82% of fatal crashes occurred on non-interstate rural roads over the past five years.

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...

 

Local rural road travel has the highest injury crash incidence in North Dakota. Crashes on these roads were determined to differ in contributing factors and characteristics when compared to those on other rural roads. Crash data from 2006 to 2010 was studied to quantify factor magnitude in predicting...

 

The main objective of rural roadway pricing is revenue generation, rather than elimination of congestion externalities. This report presents a model that provides optimum tolls accounting for pavement deterioration and economic impacts. This model contains multiple components, because imposing tolls...

 

SAFETEA-LU contains language indicating that State Department of Transportation (DOTs) will be required to address safety on local and rural roads. It is important for state, county, and city officials to cooperate in producing a comprehensive safety plan to improve statewide safety. This legislation...
