Pooled Fund: In-Service Performance Evaluation of Roadway Safety Features

It is a long-standing policy of the Federal Highway Administration that National Highway System roadside safety hardware -- such as longitudinal barriers, sign supports, guardrail terminals, and work zone devices -- demonstrate crashworthiness. Currently, state and local transportation agencies assess performance according to the crash test and evaluation methods prescribed in the AASHTO Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH). This pooled fund study will give states the opportunity to collaborate by sharing data and experiences in assessing the performance of in-service roadside safety hardware. The primary objective of this pooled fund study is to evaluate the performance of roadside safety hardware in the field through inter-state collaboration by using standardized data collection and data analysis with a uniform interpretation of results. The second objective is to provide a forum for states to share ISPE data, experiences, practices, information, and resources.
