III. RESEARCH PROBLEM STATEMENT

Access management treatments inherently reduce conflict points along urban arterial roadways. The reduction in conflict has translated to a reduction in crashes that has been documented in numerous studies looking at “before” and “after” conditions when access management treatments (i.e., raised median installation, driveway consolidation) are implemented. Crash rate reductions as high as 50 percent have been reported in these analyses.
