MAINE FACILITY: CAPABILITIES FOR RURAL ROAD RESEARCH

The Maine Facility described was established as an experimental research center devoted to investigating safety and performance problems and evaluating potential solutions for the rural road system. Physically, the facility consists of a 15-mile, instrumented section of rural two-lane road (U.S. Route 2) in central Maine, various fixed and mobile traffic data collection systems, and a control center (housing maintenance and data processing facilities). The instrumentation is primarily geared toward automatically collecting and processing data on the performance and behavior of non-cooperating subject drivers traveling the rural roads of Maine.
