2309 Utilizing Pavement Friction and Texture Data for the Reduction of Traffic Crashes and Delays

Better utilizing the available pavement friction, surface texture, roadway safety data and relevant results, along with other necessary ODOT data sets could result in significant benefits to reduce traffic fatalities, serious injuries, and traffic delays in Oklahoma. The geospatial database technology provides an ideal alternative for ODOT to integrate these different data sets with spatial components to explore the relationship between pavement surface characteristics and roadway crashes. With the geospatial and statistical analysis tools, the critical influencing factors contributing to roadway crashes for the selected pavement sections will be identified. Subsequently, the appropriate safety countermeasures can be applied to improve roadway safety and further reduce traffic delays.
