Florida Implementation Assistance Program – The Florida Department of Transportation is studying interactions between drivers and pedestrian features (signs, signals, crosswalks) at signalized intersections to develop more effective engineering, education, and enforcement countermeasures to improve pedestrian safety. Proof of Concept Darryll Dockstader
DOT
darryll.dockstader@dot.state.fl.us
Iowa Implementation Assistance Program – The Iowa Department of Transportation’s research will focus on driver speed and distraction, roadway geometry, and how roadway design countermeasures may affect road departures. The results will allow agencies to better understand which roadway safety countermeasures and roadway characteristics are associated with fewer and less severe road departure crashes. Proof of Concept Steve Gent
DOT
steve.gent@dot.iowa.gov
Michigan Implementation Assistance Program – The Michigan Department of Transportation’s research will address how a driver’s behavior changes in response to posted speed limits, while controlling for the effects of other important factors, such as roadway geometry, particularly horizontal and vertical alignment. This research hopes to provide critical insights regarding the setting of maximum speed limits, the use of advisory sign location and designs, and important differences among drivers. Proof of Concept Dean Kanitz
DOT
kanitzd@michigan.gov
Minnesota Implementation Assistance Program – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) is exploring the role speed and distraction in work-zone crashes and near crashes. The impacts of distraction and speeding will be quantified so that countermeasures can be developed to command a driver’s attention and provide cues. MNDOT expects to provide recommendations for these applications, which may lead to changes in work zone standards. Proof of Concept Brad Estochen
DOT
bradley.estochen@dot.state.mn.us
Nevada Implementation Assistance Program – The Nevada Department of Transportation is studying how driver, vehicle, roadway, and environmental factors affect turning movements, as well as vehicle operators seeing and yielding to pedestrians at intersections. Research findings will be used to guide the development of effective countermeasures to improve pedestrian safety at intersections. Proof of Concept Manjunathan Kumar

mkumar@dot.state.nv.us
New York Implementation Assistance Program – The New York State Department of Transportation is evaluating whether high-visibility marking of crosswalks (HVC) improves pedestrian safety at uncontrolled intersections. They will research the most effective HVC designs and recommend HVC-related improvements. Proof of Concept Robert Limoges

North Carolina Implementation Assistance Program – The North Carolina Department of Transportation is investigating the effects of different road alignments on road departure crashes, and will research how speed, driver-controlled variables, time of day, curves, and grades may also affect near-crashes. This study is expected to lead to more effective countermeasures or a better understanding of where additional countermeasures may be necessary. Countermeasures include different types of advance warnings, in-lane rumble strips, and improved roadway delineation. Proof of Concept Brian Mayhew
DOT
bmayhew@ncdot.gov
Utah Implementation Assistance Program – The Utah Department of Transportation is exploring how driver behavior and performance are impacted while in the vicinity of closely spaced interchange ramps (less than 2000 ft). The DOT seeks to identify new roadway design criteria, signing and striping practices, and other safety countermeasures. Proof of Concept Scott Jones
DOT
wsjones@utah.gov
Washington Implementation Assistance Program – The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is analyzing episodic speeding (e.g., 10 mph or more over the posted speed) in and around Seattle. Examining speed behaviors will help WSDOT to determine whether specific aspects such as infrastructure, bicycle and pedestrian access, roadside parking, number of lanes, visual cues to motion, and shoulder width result in excessive speeding. Proof of Concept John Milton
DOT
miltonj@wsdot.wa.gov
Washington Implementation Assistance Program – The Washington State Department of Transportation is evaluating how roadway lighting characteristics affect safety performance and driver behavior for different types of roadways, and the type of lighting needed to improve safety performance and driver comfort in various roadway settings. The DOT will also investigate cost-sensitive lighting design standards and policies that can improve safety and lower energy consumption. Proof of Concept Ted Bailey
DOT
baileyte@wsdot.wa.gov
Wyoming Implementation Assistance Program – The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is researching how drivers respond to adverse weather and road conditions (e.g., speed adaptation, lane maintenance, vehicle headways). WYDOT will gain insight into what cues are the most effective in providing drivers with a more realistic variable speed limit system and how drivers adjust their behaviors to compensate for increased risk due to reductions in visibility.

Participation Levels

When open to applications, implementation assistance is available at three participation levels:

  • Proof of Concept Pilot

    Opportunity to help evaluate the readiness of a particular product.

  • Lead Adopter Incentive

    Available to help offset costs associated with product implementation and risk mitigation.

  • User Incentive

    Available to accomplish a variety of implementation activities. Examples include conducting internal assessments, executing system process changes, and organizing peer exchanges.

Assistance will vary by product, depending on the status of product development and the steps required to make the product market-ready, considering current usage, risk, and geographic saturation.
