NCHRP 20-07/Task 354 [Anticipated]

Work Zone Speed Limits and Crash Data Practices
[ NCHRP 20-07 (Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $100,000
Staff Responsibility: Mark S. Bush
Fiscal Year: 2014

This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected in . The project statement will be available on this world wide web site. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

The objective of this project is to determine effective strategies for managing speeds in work zones that result in the appropriate balance of safety and mobility.

STATUS: In development. A panel is currently being convened. Multiple NCHRP on-going research projects are complementing this 20-07 anticipated study. NCHRP 17-43, “Long-Term Roadside Crash Data Collection Program”, NCHRP 17-57, “Development of a Comprehensive Approach for Serious Traffic Crash Injury Measurement and Reporting Systems.” NCHRP 20-24(37)K, “Measuring Performance among State DOTs: Sharing Good Practices –Safety (Serious Injuries)” was completed and will be feeding in to this 20-07 project initiative. The intent is to have the results of these current on-going research activities at a reasonable maturity level so the results can be available to compliment the 20-07 study and not duplicate efforts.
