Local Road Safety Program Evaluation: Perceptions, Experiences & Implementation

Sustained efforts to ensure that people and goods can be moved safety and efficiently throughout the road network are essential in attracting businesses and growing communities that enable economic growth. North Dakota local road manager and stakeholder participants in these local road safety program (LRSP) will be surveyed to gain insight into safety planning, investments and stakeholder involvement. The LRSP was implemented as a strategy in the 2012 Strategic Highway Safety Plan that was developed by the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT). These plans were completed between 2013 and 2015, so now is an opportune time to revisit the process and outcomes as the NDDOT moves forward with a 2017 update to the SHSP. Safety investments in infrastructure and behavioral interventions and best practices will be presented in a project report. This information will be used to explore their possible integration into geographic information system (GIS)-based local road safety management tools.
