Investigation of Methods & Approaches for Collecting & Recording Highway Inventory Data

Implementing the recently-published Highway Safety Manual (HSM) methods will allow the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to improve the safety of Illinois roads. However, the highway inventory data needed for the HSM is not currently stored in IDOT databases. IDOT must collect and store highway inventory data in order to implement HSM and other functions within the Bureau of Safety Engineering, other IDOT offices, or local agencies. The primary objective of the proposed research is to identify available techniques and methodologies for collecting and storing highway inventory data and to comparatively evaluate selected methodologies.
