Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 46-07. State Safety Practices for Local Agencies

This project will synthesize state programs to address local agency road safety. These programs may be those that are using data driven approaches to addressing local road safety. The project will gather information from state and a sample of local agencies (particularly counties and tribes) involved in finding new or innovative ways to address local road safety, particularly on lower volume roads. This will identify local and state agencies that have a track record of working together to successfully deliver projects. This study was preceeded by NCHRP 20-24(87): State department of transportation (DOT) Administration of Local Road Safety Aid, which was oriented to chief executive officers (CEO's) of state DOTs, and which studied how state DOTs organize themselves to administer safety programs on local roads. This current study will build on 20-24 (87) and will delve more deeply into current practice. Information will be gathered by literature review, a survey of the State DOT persons responsible for local road safety (list to be provided by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Rosemarie Anderson), and selected interviews. Based on survey responses, approximately 10 examples of state/local agency partnering that illustrate noteworthy practices will be showcased. The list of examples will be reviewed and approved by the topic panel before interviews are conducted.
