COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission has released its top 100 high crash intersections list for 2018.
MORPC ranks the intersections based on a formula that considers number of crashes, traffic volume and severity over the three-year period 2015-2017.
The top ten intersections making this year’s list include:
Dublin Granville Road/SR 161 @ Maple Canyon Drive
Broad Street/SR 16 @ James Road
E Livingston Avenue @ Hamilton Road/SR 317
Morse Road @ Karl Road
Hilliard Rome Road @ Renner Road
Frank Road/SR 104/Refugee Road @ Winchester Pike
Cleveland Avenue @ Dublin Granville Road/SR 161
Broad Street/SR 16 @ Lancaster Avenue/Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road
E Livingston Avenue @ Brice Road
Cleveland Avenue @ Innis Road
“While 13 locations have dropped off this list from last year, we are seeing that the total number of crashes across all 100 intersections has increased,” said Kerstin Carr, MORPC Director of Planning & Environment. “Our local governments are always trying to figure out how engineering solutions can make our roadways safer, but data suggests unsafe behaviors like distracted driving, not wearing your seat belt, or speeding, most often lead to serious injuries or fatalities in a crash.”
