This project would add a Safety Project Planning Module to Mobility, a comprehensive transportation asset management system which is used by all Washington counties. By expand mobility data elements associated with crashes (horizontal curve, vertical curve, clear zone, etc.), it will allow county engineers to develop “decision trees” that will select proven countermeasures based on roadway and collision characteristics and produce a proposed safety project location list, enhancing local priority setting.

WSDOT has a state-wide geometry of all roadways, but it is currently a manual process to keep it updated based on information CRAB receives from counties. This project would be the initial planning stage of the design and implementation of a system/process that would consolidate the reporting requirements for counties, while providing an automated way for the WSDOT and CRAB roadway data to be kept up-to date. The outcome would be an actionable plan that would be acceptable to all parties.

To significantly improve WSDOT and outside customers abilities to perform general safety analysis around intersections, WSDOT will validate previously obtained intersection data, agree on intersection definitions that work for the various users and data owners, and build a GIS map layer complete with intersection identifiers and supporting information.
