1 HFST Council Meeting FHWA Update Frank Julian Federal Highway Administration Resource Center - Safety and Design Team August, ATSSA Mid Year Meeting Hilton Head, South Carolina

2 Agenda Proven Countermeasures Every Day Counts II (EDCII) Focus States / Technical Assistance MAP 21 Comments

3 2011 Countermeasures 1.Roundabouts 2.Safety Edge 3.Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas 4.Longitudinal Rumble Strips and Stripes on 2-lane Roads* 5.Corridor Access Management 6.Backplates and Retroreflective Borders 7.Enhanced Delineation and Friction for HC 8.Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon 9.“Road Diets” (Roadway Reconfiguration) 2008 Countermeasures 1.Roadway Safety Audit** 2.Median Barriers 3.Walkways 4.Left and Right Turn Lanes at Stop- Controlled Intersections 5.Yellow Change Intervals 6.Rumble Strips and Rumble Stripes* 7.Roundabouts 8.Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas 9.Safety Edge Proven Countermeasures “…we encourage safety practitioners to consider a new set of countermeasures …that are research-proven, but not widely applied on a national basis. “ “While States should still be considering the application of all of the countermeasures listed in the 2008 guidance, this memo supersedes the previous guidance. “

4 Roadway Departure Countermeasures Longitudinal Rumble Strips and Stripes on 2-Lane Roads Enhanced Delineation and Friction for Horizontal Curves Safety Edge SM Roadway Departure Risk Management 1.Keep Vehicles on Roadway 2.Reduce Likelihood of Crashes 3.Minimize Severity

5 Enhanced Delineation and Friction for Horizontal Curves Low-cost treatments. Includes signs and markings to that help drivers safely negotiate curves or… Additional pavement friction to address geometric deficiencies Safety Impacts: Vary based on application Up to 43% reduction of all fatal crashes

6 Fact Sheets and Further Information FHWA web site:

7 Training Summits AASHTO Involvement California Kansas Kentucky West Virginia Every Day Counts II (EDCII)

8 DRAFT

9 Focused Approach 3 Focus areas Roadway Departure Intersections Pedestrians States identified that had more than the median number of crashes and exceeded average rates These states get extra attention and assistance

10 States with Roadway Departure Implementation Plans Completed Plans (* indicates ongoing activity): North Carolina, Kentucky, Oregon, Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina In-Progress Plans: Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, California In the Queue or Interested: Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia

11 Kentucky Results Rumbles installed in miles of shoulder rumble strips; 240 miles of edge line rumble stripes 200 miles of center line rumble stripes. High Friction Surfaces 32 sites selected and installed in 2010 and 2011 Preliminary evaluation of 26 projects shows a 69% reduction in crashes

12 States with ISIPs Completed Plans (* indicates ongoing activity): Arizona, Florida, Georgia*, Indiana, Louisiana*, Massachusetts*, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio*, Pennsylvania, South Carolina*, Tennessee* In-Progress Plans: North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington State In the Queue or Interested: New Hampshire, Texas (MPOs)

13 MAP 21  Consolidated many funding programs  Eliminated HRRR but intent remains  Safe Routes to School Program consolidated  Overall Safety Program funding greatly increased (but not across the board)  High Friction was made eligible for 100% Federal Funding  Intersections were specifically mentioned for skid reduction

14 Questions/Comments
