Abstract or Summary
  • Transportation agencies need efficient methods to determine how to improve bicycle facilities in order to improve connectivity and safety. Many studies have used standalone methods such as level of traffic stress (LTS) and bicycle level of service (BLOS) to better understand bicycle mode share and network connectivity for a region while other studies rely on collision severity models to explain what variables attribute to bicycle related collisions. This research looks at comparing bicycle LTS networks with bicycle collisions for four cities in New Hampshire. The LTS measurements of the road and the collision point are compared visually and collision severity models are developed incorporating the LTS measurements. Results of the visual analysis show some clustering patterns and geospatial correlation between higher LTS roads and "Injury" type bicycle collisions. Using an ordered probit model, LTS 2 is found to be the only significant LTS with bicycle collisions. These results indicate that the assumption of LTS 2 being a safe route may be premature and bicycle ridership data plays a bigger role in bicycle safety.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Thanks for making the changes. Rejecting to remove the signatures on the Abstract and Approval pages for security reasons. Also on the Heading LIST OF FIGURES, the word List is spelled Lits. Everything else looks good.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Rejecting for the following reasons - 1) Approval page - first signature line should read - Major Professor, representing Civil Engineering 2) Chapter 1 should start on page 1 not page 11 3) Heading Figures should be changed to - LIST OF FIGURES with subheadings Figure on the left and Page on the right over the page numbers. 4) Heading Tables should be changed to - LIST OF TABLES with subheadings Figure on the left and Page on the right over the page numbers. Everything else looks good. Once revised log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit.
