AUTHORS: Mike Kamalabad*, University of Connecticut - Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center

ABSTRACT: The Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center supports the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) in maintaining sophisticated crash data entry, collection, and safety analysis systems. Advanced safety analysis methodologies, such as those outlined in the Highway Safety Manual, require accurate and robust crash data. Embarking upon an effort to enhance safety analysis capabilities, enterprise crash data, with multiple forms of location information, is integrated into a linear referenced roadway network maintained by ConnDOT to ensure consistency and accuracy. This presentation seeks to outline the process via ArcGIS Desktop and the challenges encountered in properly integrating crash data into the ConnDOT roadway network. Additional discussion will address the potential benefits of integrating field data into LRS - including validation, visualization, analysis, and metrics.
