Abstract: This internship project seeks to locate hotspots of motor vehicle, bike and pedestrian crashes in Greensboro, North Carolina, and determine causes that contribute to the severity of the crashes. Greensboro has been leaning towards a more BiPed (short for bicycle and pedestrian) focused planning while also maintaining fast and safe access to other major cities of the state such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham, Wilmington, and Danville via highway. This is challenging as these two approaches to planning sometimes come into conflict. The way that roads and land use are configured can greatly increase the danger to bicyclists and pedestrians, so analyzing the crash hotspots will allow the DOT to deploy resources that will increase safety. The study timeline for this project is for the year 2019 as I helped complete that year’s Quality Assurance and Quality Control process (QA/QC) for the City of Greensboro Department of Transportation’s Metropolitan Planning Organization.
