TDOT funds Road Safety Audit Reviews.

Road Safety Audit Reviews are conducted at locations where improvements may be needed to reduce injuries and fatalities.

RSAR projects are developed through three different processes:

  1. Sites identified on the Highway Safety Improvement Program List.
  2. Requests from Rural Planning Organizations (RPOs) and Metropolitan/Transportation Planning Organizations (MPOs/TPOs).
  3. Sections of roadway identified through the project development process.

An example would be a project evaluated by a Needs Assessment or Transportation Planning Report (TPR) that did not qualify for full reconstruction, but crash history indicates a need for an RSAR at a spot, section and/or intersection.
