The Ozarks Transportation Organization (OTO) is a metropolitan organization in southwest Missouri with a mission to provide a forum for cooperative decision making in support of an excellent regional transportation system.  OTO recently completed the first step of a pilot study, in partnership with CJW Transportation Consultants (CJW), to identify poorly performing intersections and road segments.  The study included a summary of existing accident data paired with a predicted safety analysis so comparisons could be made. 

Attendees of this session will learn how CJW used the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) crash prediction software to model crash patterns along portions of Kansas Expressway, Sunshine Street, and Glenstone Avenue in Springfield, Missouri.  Attendees will also learn how OTO will use this data to inform future planning decisions based on how these roadways are performing given the various elements of design along each road that impact safety.  This session will illustrate how transportation planners and engineers coordinate on projects aimed at protecting human health, safety, and welfare.
