Home / US40 Dual Highway Pedestrian Road Safety Study and Audit (2015)
- January 31, 2023
A pedestrian road safety audit (PRSA) is a formal procedure for assessing accident potential and safety performance for an existing roadway section. Following a number of pedestrian fatalities along the Dual Highway in Hagerstown Maryland, a PRSA review process was undertaken. The PRSA review process consisted of a multidisciplinary audit team of professionals representing City and County engineers and planners, SHA representatives from highway, planning and pedestrian sections, as well as City, County and State law enforcement, the Hagerstown/Eastern Panhandle MPO and its consultants. The PRSA Team developed recommendations including both short-term improvements (i.e., low cost, quickly implementable) and long-term improvements (i.e., capital improvements, requiring engineering design) for implementation.
