Safety & Geometrics
Safety and geometric design of highway facilities affect users for all users and modes. ITRE’s core functions in the area involve the interaction of geometric design features which often have an effect on the overall safety and operational performance of a facility. A variety of expertise is available in this field for planning and evaluation purposes at all levels of government or for consultation purposes. Staff in this area most often provide web-based services to agencies needing crash data or conduct specific crash studies using collisions or surrogate measures that often impact future policy and guidance in a specific focus area.
