Home / HEPMPO Regional Traffic Safety Study (2019)
- January 31, 2023
HEPMPO’s Regional Traffic Safety Study built upon the Maryland and the West Virginia Strategic Highway Safety Plans. HEPMPO’s Long Range Plan provided a preliminary evaluation of crash rates and crash severity and identified high need corridors and intersections. Further study evaluated the causes of crashes at these locations and recommend safety improvements. Development of this study included mapping, stakeholder coordination, analysis of historical crash data to identify recurring trends and contributing factors, public meetings and input. As part of this study Road Safety Audits (RSAs) evaluated existing conditions on three separate high crash corridors and provided short- and long-term solutions.
