The AASHTO Highway Safety Manual (HSM) has four parts:
Part C can be readily applied to any project where the engineer or planner is testing the safety impacts of different cross-sectional features of a roadway segment or intersection. It essentially provides a method for predicting the quantitative safety performance (i.e. crash frequency) of a particular facility.
Preliminary Agenda (Subject to Change): 8:00 am - 12:00 pm: Fundamentals of the Method, Applying the Method, Interpreting the Results. 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm: Lunch Break. 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm: Strengths and Pitfalls, Real World Project Examples.
Lunch will be provided.
The workshops will target staff and senior level engineers and planners who are interested in applying the HSM Part C: Predictive Method on projects to assess the safety impacts of design options.
The workshop will be led by members of Kittelson & Associates, Inc.’s project team on NCHRP 17-36: Production of the First Edition Highway Safety Manual.
