Evaluation of Speed Activated Displays on Curves

Christopher Monsere, Portland State University

Summary:

This project is a national demonstration project to evaluate the effectiveness of dynamic speed signs on high crash curves on two-lane rural roadways in seven states to decrease speeds and reduce crashes. The team has installed and is monitoring signs in Texas, Washington, Florida, Arizona, Ohio, Oregon, and Iowa on high crash curve locations on two-lane rural roadways. Low cost strategies, including adding additional reflectorized treatments to existing chevrons and on-pavement curve warning signs, were evaluated in Iowa.
