Yukon HPW Selects Fireseeds North for Four In-service Road Safety Reviews
Four in-service road safety reviews will be conducted at various locations along the Alaska Highway for Yukon Highways and Public Works. The reviews, which start this week, will cover over 15 km of highway segments and multiple complex intersections that were prioritized for analysis.
An in-service road safety review, defined in TAC guidelines, is an in-depth engineering study of an existing road using road safety principles with the purpose of identifying cost-effective countermeasures that would improve road safety and operations of all users. In-service road safety reviews form an integral component of quantitative road safety management process where performance data is used to identify areas with opportunities for improvement and road agencies take continuous improvement measures based on review results.
