Happy New Year!  Please join us
at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 for the Intersections Joint Subcommittee annual meeting! We will gather in Marquis Ballroom Salon 9 (M2) of the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC to discuss the IJS's mission and intersections-related research needs and hot topics. We hope to see you there!

Intersections:  Where Everyone Gets Together
The Intersections Joint Subcommittee (IJS) was established in January 2005 and is now sponsored by six parent committees:  Operational Effects of Geometrics (AHB65)Geometric Design (AFB10), Access Management (AHB70), Safety Data, Analysis, and Evaluation (ANB20), Pedestrian (ANF10), and Traffic Signal Systems (AHB25).
The objective of IJS is to provide focus and a forum within the Transportation Research Board (TRB) on current issues dealing with the combined aspects of intersection safety, design, and operations.
The scope of IJS includes the following:
  • At-grade intersections in rural, suburban, and urban environments;
  • All types of intersection traffic control (signalized, stop-controlled, yield-controlled, and uncontrolled); and
  • Policy or design issues associated with at-grade intersections.
All users are of interest to this subcommittee.  The goal is to engage the engineering and enforcement communities in a dialogue to share best practices and collaborative approaches for improving intersection safety.
