The Operational Effects of Geometrics Committee is concerned with highway geometric design as related to traffic operations and safety. The committee serves an important role in bridging the geometric design, safety, and operational professional domains and advancing the research and practice of safety and operational considerations into highway design. The committee seeks to:

  • Improve the understanding of the safety and operational effects of highway geometrics.
  • Assist with the development of tools that quantify those effects.
  • Facilitate the application of the best available knowledge, understanding, and tools in practice.
