Systematic Improvements in Local Jurisdictions: Performance-Based Analysis for Safety Plan and HSIP Project Prioritization

July 21, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has adopted Road to Zero. This means zero fatalities by year 2050. Kimley-Horn and Associates developed the Safety Plan and Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) projects for TxDOT Fort Worth District. We used Highway Safety Manual methods to develop the Safety Plan and HSIP projects. We performed crash analysis to develop a heat map of historical crashes to identify hot spots. Then we determined countermeasures to improve safety.

Our countermeasures included systemic for system‐wide safety implementations, proactive for substantive safety, and reactive to address high crash rate locations. We also developed specific safety improvements for bikes and pedestrians and multi-modal facilities. We based our analysis on performance measures and benefit/cost analysis to get higher return on investment and prioritize projects.
