Development of a Tool for Documenting, Tracking, Recording, and Analyzing Improvements to Intersection Sites and Roadway Departures in Curve Locations
Report No. FHWA/LA.14/540
The principal objectives and scope of this project were to provide a software tracking tool to improve decision-making for highway safety. A literature search revealed that purchasing and customizing existing software was not feasible and a new solution would be developed in-house. Requirement gathering and analysis were conducted and documented. The application was programmed as a web-based solution for collecting data on low-cost safety improvements and analyzing the effectiveness of the improvements. All programming and testing were conducted in-house. The application was piloted by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD). Minor changes were programmed, as requested. Upon DOTD’s satisfaction with the final product, the application and user manual were delivered on schedule.
