  • p-320: Evaluation of Pavement Safety Performance (FHWA February 2015) The intent of this study was to isolate the effects of various low-cost pavement treatments on roadway safety. This was a retrorespective study of pavement safety performance, looking back at crash data before and after treatments were installed. (154 pages)https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/research/safety/14065/14065.pdf
  • p-377: Use of Radio Frequency Identification Tags in Pavements (FHWA April 2015) This document presents the results of evaluations of radio frequency identification (RFID) for a set of pavement applications. The intended audience for this report is transportation engineers involved in pavement construction, quality acceptance testing for paving materials, pavement design, and pavement management. (208 pages) https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/research/infrastructure/pavements/14061/14061.pdf
  • p-395.45: Evaluation of LTPP Climatic Data for Use in Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide Calibration and Other Pavement Analysis (FHWA March 2015) This document presents the results of an evaluation of climate data from Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA) for use in the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program and for other infrastructure applications (138 pages)http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/research/infrastructure/pavements/ltpp/15019/15019.pdf
  • p-395.50: Long-Term Pavement Performance Ohio SPS-1 and SPS-2 Dynamic Load Response Data Processing (FHWA March 2015) This report documents the reinterpretation of the dynamic load response (DLR) traces for selected Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) test sections in Ohio. This new LTPP DLR data will serve as a unique resource for researchers in investigating the dynamic interaction between truck axle loads and pavements, validating their pavement dynamic loading models, and developing mechanistic pavement performance prediction models.

  • p-795.10: Safety Evaluation of Centerline Plus Shoulder Rumble Strips (FHWA June 2015) The research documented in this report was conducted as part of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Evaluation of Low-Cost Safety Improvements Pooled Fund Study (ELCSI-PFS). The results of this evaluation show that head-on, run-off-road, and sideswipe-opposite direction crashes were significantly reduced, and application of centerline and shoulder rumble strips also has potential to reduce crash severity for all types of crashes (59 pages)

  • p-971: MMUCC Guideline, Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria (Fourth Edition (2012) (On a thumbdrive in the library – no hard copy) This guideline presents a model minimum set of uniform variables or data elements for describing a motor vehicle crash. The use of MMUCC data elements will generate data that can be employed to make more informed decisions which will lead to improvements in safety and at the national, State and local levels. States are encouraged to adopt as many recommended MMUCC data elements as possible when they next update their PARs.

  • p-986: Travel Better, Travel Longer: A Pocket Guide to Improve Traffic Control and Mobility for Our Older Population (FHWA 2003) This guide highlights specific traffic situations that are particularly troublesome for older roadway users, such as left turns and temporary traffic control zones, and provides information on the use of TTC devices to maximize safety in these circumstances. (44 pages) http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/pdfs/pocketguide0404.pdf
  • p-987: Field Operations Guide for Safety/Service Patrols (FHWA December 2009) This guide is for use by Safety/Service Patrol operators and supervisors to use as a quick reference while performing patrol tasks. This guide is not designed to stand alone, but in conjunction with training and exercises that will indoctrinate the Safety/Service patrol operators into these good practices as well as Agency formal Standard Operating Guidelines or Procedures. Includes 9 visor cards. (94 pages)http://ops.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/fhwahop10014/fhwahop10014.pdf
  • p-988: Guidance – Managing Flagging Operations on Low-Volume Roads (FHWA March 2015) This document supplements the MUTCD by focusing on the TAs and solutions most often used on low-volume roads. Specifically, TTC control methods such as t2-flagger, single=flagger, self-regulating and mobile operations are all discussed with specific commentary on applying these methods to low-volume roads.
