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.
