Dr. Gang-Len Chang?s An Applied Technology and Traffic Analysis Program (ATTAP) program recently got an extension, and an award of $1million, by the Maryland State Highway Administration (MSHA). Over the past five years, joint efforts between MSHA and Dr. Chang?s Traffic Safety Lab have made MSHA the nationwide leading institute on both fundamental research and field implementation of various unconventional intersections.
ATTAP program?s focus is to develop design guidelines and evaluation procedures for unconventional intersections ? an increasingly popular new design strategy to minimize the local arterial bottlenecks. This latest award will support the lab by further advancing research on this vital subject.
