Title: (SR500) NHI Real Solutions - Pre-construction Phase RSA
Event Type: Meeting
Date/Time: 5/30/2013 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Approval Status: Confirmed
Planners, designers, and traffic engineers must anticipate potential driver errors and roadway elements that might contribute to crashes. One way to proactively identify these issues is performing a Road Safety Audit (RSA). An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent, multidisciplinary team. The RSA process can be used during any phase of a project, including the pre-construction phase. At this stage, one of the primary benefits of performing RSAs is that they can address significant safety issues and incorporate enhancements earlier in the project, which saves time, money and lives. The RSA suggestions at this stage may include major changes such as different route options, cross-section options, intersection/interchange treatments, and pedestrian/bicycle routing and facility options. During the webinar, Ms. Rebecca Crowe, FHWA RSA Program Manager will provide an overview of RSAs and Mr. Daniel Nabors, Senior Transportation Engineer with VHB, will discuss how to perform an RSA during the pre-construction phase. Mr. Robert Rocchio, Managing Engineer of the Traffic Management and Highway Safety (TM&HS) Section at the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, will provide details about a pre-construction phase RSA performed by RIDOT, the recommendations that came out of the RSA, changes to the project and how RSAs have ultimately improved safety. The purpose of this webinar is to provide Federal, State and local agencies with examples and advice that can assist them in implementing pre-construction phase RSAs in their jurisdictions.
