Innovation of the Month: Data-Driven Safety Analysis
FHWA offers a variety of resources to help the transportation community use data-driven safety analysis (DDSA) to make informed decisions, better target investments, and reduce severe crashes on roads.
Learn About the Innovation Experience
In addition to providing grants, the Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) Demonstration program offers award recipients an opportunity to share their experiences applying proven innovations in reports available to the transportation community. “Sharing the Innovation Experience” in the latest issue of Public Roads magazine highlights four AID Demonstration projects and insights from the agencies involved:
- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet built a roundabout to improve safety at an intersection.
- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) used slide-in bridge construction to replace two bridges.
- MDOT partnered with local agencies to use warm-mix asphalt to rehabilitate a road.
- The South Dakota Department of Transportation used high-friction surface treatments to improve safety on curves.
