MAP 21 Comments Proven Countermeasures 2008 Countermeasures 2011 Countermeasures 1. Roadway Safety Audit** 1. Roundabouts 2. Median Barriers 2. Safety Edge

3. Walkways 3. Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas 4. Left and Right Turn Lanes at Stop- 4. Longitudinal Rumble Strips and Stripes Controlled Intersections on 2-lane Roads* 5. Yellow Change Intervals

5. Corridor Access Management 6. Rumble Strips and Rumble Stripes* 6. Backplates and Retroreflective Borders 7. Roundabouts 7. Enhanced Delineation and Friction for HC 8. Medians and Pedestrian Refuge Areas 8. Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon

9. Safety Edge 9. Road Diets (Roadway Reconfiguration) we encourage safety practitioners to consider a new set of countermeasures that are research-proven, but not widely applied on a national basis. While States should still be considering the application of all of the countermeasures listed in the

2008 guidance, this memo supersedes the previous guidance. Roadway Departure Countermeasures Longitudinal Rumble Strips and Stripes on 2-Lane Roads Enhanced Delineation and Friction for Horizontal Curves Safety EdgeSM Roadway Departure Risk Management 1. Keep Vehicles on Roadway 2. Reduce Likelihood of Crashes 3. Minimize Severity Enhanced Delineation and Friction for Horizontal Curves

Low-cost treatments. Includes signs and markings to that help drivers safely negotiate curves or Additional pavement friction to address geometric deficiencies Safety Impacts: Vary based on application Up to 43% reduction of all fatal crashes

A R D T F Focused Approach 3 Focus areas Roadway Departure Intersections Pedestrians States identified that had

more than the median number of crashes and exceeded average rates These states get extra attention and assistance States with Roadway Departure Implementation Plans Completed Plans (* indicates ongoing activity): North Carolina, Kentucky, Oregon, Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina In-Progress Plans: Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, California In the Queue or Interested:

Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia Kentucky Results Rumbles installed in 2011 High Friction Surfaces 28 miles of shoulder rumble strips; 240 miles of edge line rumble stripes

200 miles of center line rumble stripes. 32 sites selected and installed in 2010 and 2011 Preliminary evaluation of 26 projects shows a 69% reduction in crashes States with ISIPs Completed Plans (* indicates ongoing activity): Arizona, Florida, Georgia*, Indiana, Louisiana*, Massachusetts*, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio*, Pennsylvania, South Carolina*, Tennessee* In-Progress Plans:

North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington State In the Queue or Interested: New Hampshire, Texas (MPOs) MAP 21 Consolidated many funding programs Eliminated HRRR but intent remains Safe Routes to School Program consolidated Overall Safety Program funding greatly increased (but not across the board) High Friction was made eligible for 100% Federal Funding

Intersections were specifically mentioned for skid reduction Questions/Comments
