    Most of the discussion on roadside effects relates to rural two-lane roads, although multilane roads and urban areas are included in some of the discussion (e.g., relating to utility pole accidents and countermeasures). The discussion of median design includes only multilane Interstate and parkway roads in rural areas. Supplemental Notes. Get this from a library!

There has been some research completed on these issues and their implications on safety.

Limited research on the safety effects of geometric design features on rural, multilane, non-freeway highways. This study examined the effects of various cross-section-related design elements on accident frequency and developed an accident prediction model for rural, multilane, non-freeway highways.

State Data Bases Used The Highway Safety Information System (HSIS) data base was. Get this from a library. Safety effects of cross-section design on rural multilane highways. [Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center.;]. This paper presents a study of the effects of the various cross-section-related design elements on the frequency of accidents for rural, multi-lane, non-freeway roads.

Data extracted from the Highway Safety Information System (HSIS) for four States were utilized for data exploration and descriptive analysis. effects of such pavement maintenance activities on highway safety and the most appropriate designs for improved roadways.

Faced with upgrading the existing two-lane rural highway system, highway officials need accurate information on the relationships between accidents and various geometric and roadside Size: 9MB.

Safety Effects of Horizontal Curve and Grade Combinations on Rural Two-Lane Highways CHAPTER 1—INTRODUCTION. This chapter presents an introduction to the report, including key background information for the research, research objectives and scope, and the organization of this report. The work completed here aimed to develop a set of recommendations to be used in evaluating safety implications from design element trade-offs.

The effort focused on developing crash-prediction models and accident modification factors (AMFs) for multilane rural roads regarding lane width, shoulder width, and median width and type. While the AASHTO HSM provides CMFs for the safety effects of horizontal curvature and percent grade on rural two-lane highways, it does not have any method for accounting for the interactions between these effects.

Safety Impacts of Design Element Trade-Offs for Multilane Rural Highways Article in Journal of Transportation Engineering (5) May with 23 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Safety Effects of Shoulder Paving for Rural and Urban Interstate, Multilane, and Two-Lane Highways Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Transportation Engineering (10) October.

1 Road Type refers to rural two-lane highway, rural multi-lane highway, urban freeway, etc. 2 Road Characteristics includes physical features such as lane widths, access density, etc. 3 Traffic Volume is the ADT or AADT in vehicles per day. 4 Observed Crash Data represents the historic crash data at the study site for a period of more than one year (preferably 3 to 5 years).

Illinois RURAL TWO-LANE/MULTILANE STATE HIGHWAYS October HARD COPIES UNCONTROLLED TWO-LANE HIGHWAYS General The minimum design for a State route is a two-lane, two-way highway. A rural expressway is a high-speed, multilane, divided highway with partial access control.

It is typically divided by a wide, depressed median and consists of both at-grade intersections and. However, there has been limited research on the safety effects of geometric design features on rural, multilane, nonfreeway highways.

This page gives a brief description of each section by roadway classification. The page also discusses how the manual is formatted and gives a listing of external reference documents. Abstract. Vertical alignment, which includes vertical grades and lengths, is a critical aspect of highway design policy that influences safety.

A full understanding of the effect of vertical grade and segment length on highway safety can help agencies to evaluate or adjust their design policies regarding vertical alignment design features (grade and length).Cited by: 2.

Prinsloo and Goudanas () produced descriptive models (in a table format) for determining the safety effects of cross-section design elements for four-lane rural highways. Roadway curvature, the presence of a median, and shoulder widths influenced the safety performance of rural highways.
