NCHRP 20-07/Task 297 [Completed]

Analysis of usRAP
[ NCHRP 20-07 (Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $65,000
Principal Investigator: Larry Tibbits
Effective Date: 9/24/2010
Completion Date: 5/23/2011

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has led the development of a tool titled “United States Road Assessment Program” or “usRAP.” The objectives of usRAP are to estimate risks of road segments, assist highway agencies with allocating infrastructure and enforcement resources based on the estimated risk, provide information to motorists, and encourage collaboration among
highway safety partners.  Several states have participated in a pilot program and have found the tool to be beneficial, but additional research is needed to determine whether further implementation in additional highway agencies would be beneficial, and how usRAP could support additional safety efforts of member departments. The project has been completed. Copies of the final report have been sent to teh AASHTO Standing Committee on Highway Traffic Safety.   (NCHRP Staff: C. W. Niessner)
