Exercise IV: US 52 from Sageville to Holy Cross 1.Compute the combined predicted safety performance (x-section + curves + intersections) and compare to actual safety record 2.Identify priorities areas for improvements Discussion  Use Worksheet Exercise IV 8-10

Exercise IV – US 52 from Sageville to Holy Cross From the US 52 corridor crash information, perform the following tasks: 2.Compute the combined predicted crash frequency performance (x-section + curves + intersections) and compare to actual crash record - Where is the greatest safety shortfall? a. Lane and Shoulder Width b. Driveway Density c. Roadside Design d. Curves e. Intersections 8-11

From the US 52 corridor crash information, perform the following tasks: 2.Identify priorities as to improvements - where is the greatest shortfall (at 2,500 AADT)? a. Lane and Shoulder Width (yes/no) (___%) c. Roadside Design (yes/no) (____%) d. Curves (yes/no) (___%) e. Intersections (yes/no) (___%) b. Driveway Density (yes/no) (___%) Exercise IV – US 52 from Sageville to Holy Cross 8-12

Learning Outcomes: ► Computed combined predicted safety performance of x-section, grade, curvature, and intersections ►Compared predicted safety performance to actual safety performance ► Identified greatest safety shortfall ► Identified priorities for improvement Exercise IV – US 52 from Sageville to Holy Cross 8-13
