About the research

Abstract:

The purpose of this task is to provide the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Roadway Departure Team with technical support to gather the necessary information and develop appropriate outreach materials for a wide range of audiences on curve delineation treatments. The objective is to achieve positive results in decreasing roadway fatalities and reducing the number of injuries due to crashes when vehicles leave their lane of travel on a horizontal curve.

This project is a subcontract with LEIDOS.
