Incorporating Safety into Long-Range Transportation Planning

The objective of this research is to develop a guidebook for practitioners that identifies and evaluates alternative ways to more effectively incorporate and integrate safety considerations in long-range statewide and metropolitan transportation planning and decision-making processes. The research should encompass the full range of safety implications of facility and geometric improvements, capacity improvements, operational improvements, population growth and other demographic issues, land use decisions, and human behavior-related issues associated with all surface transportation modes. It should also include recommendations for improvements to the tools, methods, and procedures that support systems, corridor, and project planning.
