Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-10-0057
Project Name: Informational Report on Methods to Achieve Safe Speeds on Rural and Suburban Roadways
Status: Active
Contact:
Last Name:Knoblauch
First Name:Richard
Telephone:202-493-3369
E-mail:richard.knoblauch@dot.gov
Office: Office of Safety Research and Development
Team:Roadway Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Speed Management
Comprehensive Approach to Safety
Safety Data and Analysis
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. Treatments 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.
Start Date: September 24, 2010
End Date: March 30, 2014
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.
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.
