Title: Salem Transportation Safety Analysis
Author: Johnson, Pamela C.; Monsere, Chris
Abstract: Portland State University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering explored various traffic safety concerns in the City of Salem. The Salem Transportation Safety Analysis was conducted by Portland State University civil engineering students. Intersections with high crash statistics and other safety issues were selected by the City of Salem for evaluation. Some of the locations did not have traffic problems but needed improved facilities to increase walking and biking. The students were asked to recommend possible modifications and solutions to existing traffic safety concerns. Ten separate studies were conducted by the civil engineering students. The groups evaluated the existing traffic conditions and developed recommendations using traffic safety evaluation methods learned in the Transportation Safety Analysis course.
