abstract

As an FHWA Every Day Counts (EDC) 4 innovation, Data-Driven Safety Analysis (DDSA) provides practitioners with the latest generation of crash and roadway analysis tools to reliably predict the safety impacts of project decisions. This allows agencies to target investments with more confidence, and reduce severe crashes on their roadways.

This presentation will overview the DDSA innovation and highlight noteworthy practices in applying DDSA throughout the project development process (planning, environment/alternatives analysis, design, and construction, operations and maintenance) over the last three years, sharing examples from both State DOTs and local agencies.
