Integrated Transportation Framework for High Crash Locations and its Application in Florida
Friday, September 8, 2017
8:30 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. EDT
This session will present an integrated transportation framework analysis for identifying high crash locations, appropriate safety countermeasures and developing projects for funding under safety grants. The panel will provide an overview of the need for an integrated approach, the process undertaken to develop the framework and the test application on one county in Florida. The session will describe the technical assistance approach and proposed application for 25 rural counties in Florida in the next 5-year period. The session will then provide an opportunity for the audience to interact with the researchers and discuss the development or application efforts.
Safety on Florida roads continue to rise as challenge for our rural areas and small towns. In Florida, over forty percent of crash fatalities occur on local roads. Yet many of these communities have limited resources to develop projects and the support documentation to secure the much needed funding assistance. This session will describe processes and tools that planners and engineers can use to screen high crash locations and the technical assistance available to them to identify appropriate safety countermeasures and projects to secure funding through safety grants.
