Road Safety Audits
A Road Safety Audit (RSA) enlists a multi-disciplinary management team to improve the safety of roadways and intersections for all users. RSAs are intended to eliminate or alleviate safety concerns that have been identified when studying crash data and from actual field investigations.
The Project Safety Office also conducts systemic safety improvements that impact multiple locations with similar crash patterns or geometric layouts. These include:
- Ramp Queue Projects
- Fatality Reduction Initiative
- Intersection Action Plan
- Roadway Departure Action Plan
- High-friction Surface Treatments
- Roadway Median Cable Barrier
- Spot Safety
The goal of the Project Safety Office is to reduce the total number and severity of crashes through reactive and proactive safety strategies, while expediting the project development process. It should also be noted that the Project Safety Office received a National Roadway Safety Award for some RSAs that developed the “J-turn” alternate intersection design found in Maury County.
