Figure 6.12 Screenshot. Incorporating Safety into Project Prioritization

Long Description

Figure 6.12 is a screenshot from the North Jersey Transportation Planning Agency, showing the safety project prioritization criteria for highway and State bridge projects. A project will receive the highest score of 110 points if safety improvements are made at safety priority locations; 83 points if safety improvements are made at locations where the severity-weighted accident rate exceeds the regional average; 55 points if improvements address safety issues of local concern; and 28 points if it’s a drainage, rockfall, or pavement rehabilitation/resurfacing project.
