Development of Iowa Road Safety Audit or Assessment (RSA) Guidelines

The first objective of this research will be to survey and collect current national and state road safety audit of assessment (RSA) guidelines currently in existence to determine best practices. Then, RSA and assessment guidelines will be developed specifically for Iowa based off these best practices as well as additional needs unique to the state. The following five tasks are proposed as part of this project. Task 1: Establish a technical advisory committee (TAC) of local and state representatives to provide input on the completion of the tasks below. The TAC will meet through face to face meetings at the beginning and end of the project and will meet through either face to face meetings or conference calls on an as-needed basis. Task 2: Review and summarize the current national RSA guidelines and software. Task 3: Survey, review, and summarize up to five states RSA and/or assessment implementation guidelines and/or policies Task 4: Develop an outline for the Iowa RSA and assessment guidelines. Task 5: Produce a draft and final guideline report. This task will first include the production of a draft report of the guidelines developed in task 4 which will then be reviewed by the TAC. The input of the TAC will then be used in the production of the final guideline report.
