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...

 

Appendix for MPC-98-98A Volume 1. 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...

 

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.

 

North Dakota has more than 102,000 miles of rural roads. Approximately half of these roads are paved and the rest are gravel or dirt. Due to limitations in funding and shifts in traffic patterns, counties and townships are forced to make difficult decisions regarding the maintenance of their roads. Some...

 

This paper presents a prototype safety improvement program (SIP), which was developed specifically for unpaved roads. The combination of high mileage, low traffic volume, and limited budgets make it difficult for local agencies to adopt traditional safety improvement programs. The SIP for unpaved roads...

 

This paper examines the effectiveness of applying chip seal friction courses in reducing accidents on low volume, rural roads. Chip sealing data from District 3 of the Utah Department of Transportation were used to examine accident rates before and after applying chip seal. Although accident rates generally...

 

The overall purpose of this report is to evaluate the perspectives and practice of economic and safety regulation of local and regional short line railroads. Specific objectives are to: (1) review the dynamics of the short line railroad spin-off movement in the United States and the Mountain-Plains Consortium...

 

This report is an interim report for the first phase of an ongoing project entitled "Moderate Weight Bridge Guardrail for Rural Sites." The objective is to examine the potential of a new bridge guardrail concept as a means of increasing the safety of travel over rural bridges. This project is conducted...

 

A research study was conducted to investigate the potential application of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway Systems (IVHS) technologies for reducing accidents on rural roads. After studying existing technologies, their present application to transportation, and approaches to identifying predominant accident...
