Illinois Highway Safety Manual Workshop

The proposed Illinois Highway Safety Manual (HSM) Lead State Peer to Peer Workshop will be held in Schaumburg, IL at the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) District 1 office. The tasks include the following: (1) identify 10 to 13 state highway agencies that are taking a lead role in implementing the HSM and are willing to share their experiences with other states; (2) convene an initial peer-exchange meeting involving 10 IDOT Central Office representatives, 3 representatives from each of the IDOT districts and selected states and other experts familiar with HSM development and implementation; and (3) identify best practices and challenges to implementation and prepare a final report documenting the findings. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) will coordinate and assist in facilitating this HSM Workshop. UIUC will be responsible for establishing and maintaining a web site for the Workshop, coordinating transportation and lodging, and payment of all conference related expenses (unless defined in this proposal letter). UIUC will also be responsible for preparation of the proceedings, video-taping and voice recording of the entire workshop, supporting the IT and other presentation needs, and preparing the final report after the event. IDOT's Bureau of Safety Engineering will oversee the Workshop and assist with the meeting arrangements.
