FAQ for FHWA SEAHC Demo Projects

What is the purpose of the SEAHC HFS demonstrations?

The purpose of the field trials under the SEAHC effort is to determine the effect of high friction surfacing on reducing accident rates on horizontal curves.  As such, accident data for the three years prior to and three years following the HFS installations will be collected.  Additionally, skid resistance, texture depth, and tire-pavement noise (if appropriate) data will also be collected at each demonstration site.
