Highway Safety Manual Applied in States: Calibration and Training

This project involves two major steps for applying the national Highway Safety Manual (HSM) in states. The first step is the calibration of HSM to local conditions using historical safety, geometric and demand data. The focus of the calibration will be on Missouri although other Mid-America Transportation Center (MATC) states could also benefit from the results. The second step is the development of training and technology transfer for a wide range of organizations including the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), metropolitan planning organizations, regional planning commissions and local communities.
