This report documents activities in Phase III of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Project 0-4048, which focused on before-and-after evaluations of safety treatments installed between 1995 and 2000 at 50 locations on rural highways in Texas.

On the whole, treatments reduced preventable crashes by 15% and preventable injury crashes by 31%.
