A Prototype of Intersection Safety Engineering Management Decision Support System

The study attempts to develop an Intersection Safety Engineering Management Decision Support System (SEMDSS) that models after the principles, analytical approaches, and data management tools associated with the Pavement Management System (PMS). Six important actions have been identified in the system development level: 1) create a statewide intersection crash listing; 2) develop a state-of-the-practice safety ranking method to define and apply safety improvement opportunity locations; 3) define state-specific intersection safety improvement guidelines based on NCHRP report 500; 4) generate regional and statewide intersection safety improvement needs report; 5) define intersection safety improvement “investment tiers”; and 6) integrate recommendations into Department of Transportation (DOT) highway and safety program funding processes. The paper described the first phase of the project including Task 1 and 2.
