Rural Intersection Enhancement and Driver Behavior Study

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  04/10/2024


This work builds on past work with driver behavior at intersections. The study will use a mixed-methods approach to experimentally manipulate J-turn intersections and undivided, thru-STOP intersection markings and signage in a driving simulation and validate J-turn driver behavior findings in a field observation of a newly constructed J-turn intersection. The goal of the work is to provide design guidance for markings and signage at thru-STOP intersections to support driver decision making and safe crossing behaviors.
