SPR-4300: Investigation of Durability and Performance of High Friction Surface Treatment

In 2018, a total of $1.5 million HFST projects will be placed on roadway curves with the intent to make HFST one of the available traffic safety systemic work types to combat the 39% percent of severe crashes caused by vehicles departing the roadway. Major issues such as durability, performance-driven specifications, and crash modification factor (CMF) will be addressed in this study. An effective training program will be developed to train district and county engineers to utilize HFST, an emerging technology, to dramatically and immediately reduce crashes and the related injuries and fatalities.
