Infrastructure and Operations
Regional coordinators work with DOTD and the Louisiana Transportation Research Center to identify road segments with high rates of roadway departure and intersection crashes resulting in fatal or serious injuries. This information will be used to determine locations for Road Safety Audits, as well as to identify physical characteristics of roadway design that lead to higher crash rates so proactive, low-cost improvements are vital to reduce crashes in other emphasis areas as well: for example, many roadway departure incidents also involve impaired and distracted driving or young drivers, and the results are exponentially worse if vehicle occupants are not properly restrained.
Our team leaders are comprised of engineers, planners and safety advocates. The Capital Region Transportation Safety Coalition Infrastructure and Operations Team Leaders are:
Jackie Baumann, Ascension Parish
