Work Zone Safety Analysis, Investigating Benefits from Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) on Roadway Safety

This project aims to identify the contributing factors that affect crash frequency and crash severity of work zone crashes through the conjunction of the results from conventional statistical models and machine learning techniques. This can provide a more comprehensive interpretation of work zone crash severity and frequency outcomes. The analysis sheds light on the internal probability patterns of crash contributing factors, as well as their overall impacts. In addition, it seeks to assess the impact of ABC implementation to enhance work zone safety through a benefit-cost analysis, which has not been investigated and documented yet.
