2013 North Carolina Highway Safety Improvement Program

The purpose of the North Carolina Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is to provide a continuous and systematic procedure that identifies and reviews specific traffic safety concerns throughout the state. Within these areas are determined the potentially hazardous (PH) locations that are possibly deficient. The ultimate goal of the HSIP process is to reduce the number of traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities by reducing the potential for these incidents on public roadways. The Traffic Safety Unit continuously strives to improve the identification of relevant traffic safety issues, minimum warranting criteria, and the location selection process. The 2013 HSIP is a preliminary list of PH locations intended to be primarily utilized by engineers within the Transportation Mobility and Safety Division as well as North Carolina Department of Transportation Division Operations personnel. Total potentially hazardous locations identified: 1799 potentially hazardous intersection locations, 577 potentially hazardous section locations, and 93 potentially hazardous bicycle/pedestrian intersection. This publication consists of only the top 400 and 200 potentially hazardous locations in the intersection and section categories, respectively. It contains all the bicycle/pedestrian intersection locations.
