The overall goal of this project is to enhance SCDOT’s current access management practices resulting in a reduction in crashes, injuries, and fatalities on South Carolina roadways as well as improved traffic flow. 

Findings & Conclusions

Influence of Road Cross Section on Access Spacing

This report presents a study on the influences of select cross-sectional-related design elements (specifically median configurations and bicycle 
lanes) and their impact on crash severity and type, as well as the associated driver gap acceptance for turning maneuvers at midblock driveway 
locations on urban arterials. The primary goal of this proposed research is to better understand how the median and bicycle lane configurations 
can influence safety and operations at driveway locations.

NCHRP Report 659: Guide for the Geometric Design of Driveways

Click here if you liked this information

This document became the first national guide focused specifically on driveway design since the publication of AASHTO’s An Informational Guide for Preparing Private Driveway Regulations for Major Highways in 1959. Since 1959, the transportation system and its needs have changed drastically, and this report addresses the need for a comprehensive driveway design guide that accounts for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The report identifies more than 90 design elements that directly or indirectly affect the geometric design of a driveway or access point.
