B&N was retained by the Regional Intergovernmental Council (RIC) to perform road safety audits in Kanawha and Putnam Counties. West Virginia has a vision of zero traffic-related fatalities, with a benchmark goal of achieving a 50% reduction in fatalities and a 66% reduction in serious injuries by 2030.
B&N ranked locations for further study to ensure that RIC’s budget was used efficiently. Of these locations, four were identified for a more in-depth analysis. For each of these locations, the B&N team analyzes crash patterns to determine the root cause and identify short- and long-term safety solutions.
