EVALUATION OF US 119 PINE MOUNTAIN SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS: IHSDM ANALYSIS OF POST CONSTRUCTION

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the spot improvements of US 119 from Partridge to Whitesburg in southeastern Kentucky using the newly released software by the Federal Highway Administration, Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM). The safety improvements on US 119 cover 6.9 miles at a projected cost of approximately $36 million. US 119 is a rural principal arterial with a "AAA" weight classification, which allows traffic loads up to 80,000 pounds. US 119 is on the National Highway System, State Primary System, Appalachian Development Highway System, and the Defense Highway Network. This report presents the results of phase two of the evaluation. This report is a safety analysis, using the IHSDM, of the post-construction conditions based on changes made to the alignment and roadway cross section.
