Intersection on Horizontal Curves: Problems and Potential Solutions

The objective of this project is to quantify safety performance of intersections on curves on Louisiana state owned and locally owned roads. Specifically, the objectives are to determine significance, magnitude and relevance of the problem; identify risk factors or roadway characteristics associated with intersection on curve; and develop a list of possible countermeasures that target the identified risk factors.
