terminals. The most common conditions for WWD entries for each
technique are stop line positionings on the crossroad more than 60
percent, turning radii larger than 100 ft, the traversable median,
and medians 10 ft or less. The highest OR belongs to the stop line
positioning on crossroads, indicating high importance of this
factor. Turning radii larger than 80 ft from crossroads to two-way
ramps are twice or more susceptible to WWD entries. Traversable
medians are more prone to WWD entries. Median widths more
than 40 ft between ramps are less vulnerable to WWD entries.

Jin Wang, a student member of ITE, is a Ph.D.
graduand in civil engineering at Auburn University.
Her main research interests include traffic safety and
operation, access management, operational effects of
geometrics, driver behavior, naturalistic driving study,
and intelligent transportation systems. She is the
recipient of the Best Young Member Technical Paper Award by the ITE
Southern District in 2017 and the National Operations Center of
Excellence Transportation Research Board Student Contest Winner in
2018. She currently serves the STEM Subcommittee of ITE as a
Committee Member.

This study establishes the foundation for countermeasure
developments and design guide modifications to improve safety
at parclo interchange terminals, including stop line positioning
no more than 60 percent, turning radii less than 80 ft, using
a non-traversable median, and median widths less than 40 ft.
Although the methodology identified vulnerable geometric
designs to WWD and validated the differences between
geometric elements with field and crash data, it cannot determine
what caused the differences of driver behavior. Further study on
driver behavior can be explored based on this study. itej
