4. Emphasis Area Focus – IMPROVE THE DESIGN AND OPERATION OF INTERSECTIONS

Improving the design and operation of intersections means reducing crashes at both signalized and unsignalized intersections.  In locations with pedestrians and bicyclists, it is important to also address their need to cross intersections.  In 2011, 29% of the crashes that resulted in fatalities in the Delaware Valley occurred at intersections.  This agenda item will include an overview from DVRPC, two presentations, and then discussion on a range of doable action items for this emphasis area.  The presenters are:

  • Charlie Territo, Vice President of Communications, American Traffic Solutions
  • George Fallat, P.E., Traffic Engineer, Mercer County Department of Transportation and Infrastructure – Engineering Division

5. Developing Action Items

The RSTF will refine strategies from the Plan and discuss action items to minimize road departure crashes to track in the Measurements and Status Table.
