Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-13-0115
Project Abstract:

Under DCMF, develop reliable crash modification factors; find new statistical methodologies and improve existing ones; conduct CMFs gap analysis, research needs, and stakeholder meetings; determine high-priority national safety concerns and their corresponding focus States for systemic safety improvements and evaluations; and other tasks as required. Studies include safety evaluation of: 1) multiple strategies at signalized intersections; 2) turning movement restrictions at stop-controlled intersections; 3) horizontal curve realignment on rural, two-lane roads; 4) edge-Line rumble stripes on rural two-lane horizontal curves; 5) profiled thermoplastic pavement markings; 6) cable median barriers in combination with rumble strips on the inside shoulder of divided roads; 7) red-light indicator lights (RLILs) at intersections; 8) signalized restricted crossing U-turn intersections; 9) corner clearance at signalized intersections; 10) multiple strategies at stop-controlled intersections; 11) pedestrian countdown signal; 12) centerline plus shoulder rumble strips; 13) wet reflective pavement markers; 14) intersection warning sign; 15) green T intersection 16) enhancing the statistical methods; 17) CMFs workshop.
