Implement strategies and standards included in the Human Factors Guide and the Handbook for Designing Roadways for the Aging Population broadly across Texas.
- Evaluate the effectiveness, the cost to implement, and the time to implement (see sections below).
- Prioritize measures to implement.
- Implement the measures.
- Evaluate measures to justify making the measures part of the standards.
- Publicize improvements.
Note: Specifically adopt as standard practice turn-lane channelization, offset left-turn lanes, edge line and curb delineation, left-turn traffic control for signalized intersections (protected left-turn phases), advance street name signs (particularly at three-legged intersections and locations with a relatively large annual average daily traffic or a large expected number of crashes), larger signs, advance warning signs, overhead lane assignment on intersection approach, and improved signal head visibility.
TxDOT, city agencies, municipalities, and law enforcement agencies
Long for full implementation. During the facilitated discussions, 10 years was mentioned a few times.
- Lack of maintenance and construction policies and standards to require infrastructure improvements.
- In some cases, public acceptance (e.g., roundabouts).
