Establishing a Repeatable Method for Presenting Non-Traditional Traffic Treatments to Maximize Stakeholder Support

This project proposes developing clear and reproducible methods for engaging community members regarding upcoming road treatments for greater stakeholder support. Further, the study will examine optimal forewarning sign placement to enhance road users situational awareness of novel road treatments to reduce errors. This project is intended to scale beyond RCUTs (restricted crossing U-turn or J-turn) to different road treatment projects (e.g., roundabouts, road diets) statewide.
