“If it Ain’t Broke…” and Other Safety Lessons/Systemic Inventory and Crash Analysis Tables (SICAT)

Presented by Senior Transportation Engineer Joel Morrill and Transportation Engineers Robbie Holton and Justin Hina

The first step of any safety project is to diagnosis the safety challenges. To do this it is imperative to understand the underlying risk factors. This presentation will detail the recent development of a tool being used on Highway Safety Improvement Program’s (HSIP) projects. The tool helps the project team analyze the historical crash data to make more data-driven decisions for rural, 2-lane corridors where lower-cost, systemic-type countermeasures typically provide the most benefit. Several of the firm’s Transportation employees will highlight the tool, illustrating its usefulness and effectiveness.

Planning Lessons from the Netherlands

Presented by Active Transportation Service Line Leader Mike Sewell

The Netherlands makes multi-modal transportation look easy–it seems like their cities were built for it. However, implementing successful multi-modal roadways wasn’t as easy as it seems. During this session Mike will discuss the history of the Netherlands and the decisions that were made to influence urban planning and create better public space.
