Safety Design and Operations | FHWA

Safety Design and Operations. The Federal Highway Administration’s FHWA’s safety design and operations research identifies improvements to physical infrastructure or traffic operations that can be used to reduce collisions.

Highway Safety | FHWA Transportation

The FLH Safety Team has members in each FLH Division Office who work together on FLH-wide policy, procedures, and processes such as updating standard drawings and developing guidelines for the use of rumble strips or the use of guardrail on low volume roads.

balance the FHWA transportation and safety mission with the land management and resource protection mission of the Federal Lands Managing Agencies FLMAs. Appropriate safety applications are to be incorporated while respecting the resource impacts, historic and cultural values of the associated facility.

Safety Research and Development | FHWA

Safety Research and Development Safety is the top priority for the U.S. Department of Transportation USDOT and the Federal Highway Administration FHWA. Despite significant progress over recent decades, there were still more than 36,000 traffic-related deaths in 2019.

Interactive Highway Safety Design Model | FHWA

The IHSDM—which supports the Data-Driven Safety Analysis initiative that is part of Federal Highway Administration’s FHWA's Every Day Counts efforts—includes six evaluation modules Crash Prediction, Design Consistency, Intersection Review, Policy Review, Traffic Analysis, and Driver/Vehicle, as well as an Economic Analyses Tool.

Intersection Safety | FHWA

Background and ObjectivesMore than 50 percent of the combined total of fatal and injury crashes occur at or near intersections. The Federal Highway Administration’s FHWA’s intersection safety and design research facilitates the implementation of short-term safety improvements, and defines and evaluates long-term, higher payoff strategies to improve intersection safety.

Improving Safety and Mobility: ITS in Work Zones

Work zones are a necessary part of maintaining and upgrading the Nation’s highway systems. They are characterized by deviations from normal traffic patterns, narrowed rights-of-way, construction workers in close proximity to traffic, and work vehicles negotiating busy roads on the way to and from construction areas. This combination of factors presents challenges to worker and driver

2021 Traffic Safety Conference Center

The design, construction, and operation of the transportation system directly and disproportionately influence the safety and efficiency of emergency responders. This emergency responder panel led discussion seeks to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, research, and innovation within the field of transportation.

Traffic Calming to Slow Vehicle Speeds Transportation

The Institute of Transportation Engineers defines traffic calming as the combination of measures that reduce the negative effects of motor vehicle use, alter driver behavior, and improve conditions for non-motorized street users. Traffic calming consists of physical design and other measures put in place on existing roads to reduce vehicle speeds and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
