Project detail
Roadmap/Focus area(s):   Speed Management
Project Description:   The scope of this contract is to develop an informational report that describes treatments of rural and suburban roadways that are not access controlled.┬áTreatments for these kinds of roadways are described elsewhere and are not to be included. Although the emphasis of the informational report shall be on retrofit and resurfacing/rehabilitation operations, other situations shall also be considered.
Goals:   The objective of this project is to develop an informational report that describes treatments that result in driver self-selection of appropriate operational speeds on curve and tangent sections.
Product Type:   Research report
Test Methodology:   Basic Research
Expected Benefits:   The expected benefit is reduced crashes on rural and suburban roadways.
Deliverables: Name: Informational Report.
Product Type(s): Research report
Description: The deliverable is an informational report that describes treatments that result in driver self-selection of appropriate operational speeds on curve and tangent sections.
