A variety of portable safety and security barriers for directing traffic (public events, sports facilities, etc.), and securing private and public locations against access (court houses, schools, etc.) have been developed. Some higher capacity systems have been developed for use on and around high speed...

 

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 report contains a brief description of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and ITS technologies for Commercial Vehicle Operations (ITS/CVO). Second, it discusses previous literature regarding benefits of ITS/CVO for motor carriers, as well as managing the change due to technology. In addition...

 

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...

 
Evaluation of Pavement Shoulders (May 1999, MPC-99-101)

In this study the researchers examined the effect of pavement shoulders on the safety and structural strength of highways in Wyoming. The costs of adding shoulders to various types of highways also was examined. The study consisted of selecting representative highway sections, collecting accident data...

 

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...

 

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...
