Intersection Safety: A Manual for Local Rural Road Owners
One of the most pressing traffic safety issues on local roads is intersection safety. Many local rural intersections lack suitable design standards, delineation, and signing that may be provided on higher volume roadways. Many were not officially designed, but rather "evolved" over time to their current geometric configuration.

Roadway Departure Safety: A Manual for Local Rural Road Owners

Local rural roads vary from two-lane paved highways to gravel or dirt roads in mountainous, forest, or tribal areas. A portion of these roadways lack basic signing, pavement markings, and appropriate alignment and delineation features. In many cases local agencies have no plans for improvements due to factors such as funding, low traffic volumes, or topographical challenges.
This booklet provides local road practitioners with relevant information to reduce roadway departure crashes on the roadway network.

Roadway Safety Information Analysis: A Manual for Local Rural Road Owners
This booklet was developed to provide processes and examples for typical information needs and analyses local practitioners can use to help improve the safety of local rural roads.
