Highway Safety Manual Implementation

The objectives of the study are (1) to advance ongoing efforts by lead states to implement the Highway Safety Manual (HSM), and (2) to expand implementation to all states. This study would be coordinated with other ongoing and planned implementation activities sponsored by American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Transportation Research Board (TRB), including National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 17-50 "Lead States Initiative for Implementing the Highway Safety Manual". It will also be coordinated with projects that develop content for future editions of the HSM including NCHRP Project 17-45 "Enhanced Safety Prediction Methodology and Analysis Tool for Freeways and Interchanges" NCHRP Project 17-54 "Consideration of Roadside Features in the Highway Safety Manual" and Transportation Pooled-Fund Study TPF-5(099) "Evaluation of Low Cost Safety Improvements."
