FHWA’s Focus on Reducing Rural Roadway Departures (FoRRRwD) initiative, part of EDC-5, looks to provide systematic, targeted solutions for implementing rural road safety measures. FHWA created a series of webinars to guide state, local and tribal transportation practitioners through this new process.
Supplemental materials, such as videos, articles, and other resources may be accessed from the FoRRRwD Resources page.
