Development of Work Zone Crash Modification Factors (CMFs)
The University of Missouri (MU) hosted the webinar on the development of work zone crash modification factors (CMFs). This webinar presents material developed by Praveen Edara, Henry Brown, and Carlos Sun of MU under the 2016 Federal Highway Administration Work Zone Safety Grant. This webinar is geared towards engineers and researchers who are interested in learning more about the process for developing new work zone CMFs to facilitate work zone safety analyses. This webinar includes:
- Seven-step process and statistical methods for developing work zone CMFs
- Factors to consider when developing work zone CMFs
- Characteristics of a high-quality work zone CMF
- Documentation of results for work zone CMF studies
Length: 1 hr. 12 min. 35 sec.
