High Friction Surfacing




High Friction Surfacing (HFS) installations throughout the U.S. resulted in significant crash reductions. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funded a number of HFS projects in cooperation with state agencies. ATSSA is undertaking an effort to promote a better understanding of the benefits of HFS. This section provides case studies of successful applications throughout the United States. Each case study describes the safety issue, location and treatment. Additionally, an agency contact is provided.
