Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. Task 97B. Towards Quantitative Safety Planning: Implementation Support

NCHRP Project 08-44 produced a guidebook for metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and state departments of transportation (DOTs) to assist them in integrating safety into the transportation planning process. NCHRP 08-44(02) developed a suite of software programs, known as PLANSAFE, to enable safety forecasting for use during the planning process. Implementation of PLANSAFE in a pilot test in central Florida is occurring through NCHRP 08-36, Task 97A. Dr. Simon Washington of the University of California at Berkeley has been selected to conduct the pilot test. This project will provide on site personnel in central Florida to ensure smooth and focused implementation of the software tools and to assist in implementing the project in the other 22 Florida MPOs with support from the MPOs themselves and/or the Florida Department of Transportation.  The research team will assist the local participants in learning how to appropriately implement the software; and the team plan a series of briefings with the other Florida MPOs at their quarterly meetings. This will lay the groundwork for continued application of the software tools.
