Chang Awarded $1 Million by MSHA


Civil Engineering Professor Gang-Len Chang's Applied Technology and Traffic Analysis Program (ATTAP) recently received an award of $1 million from the Maryland State Highway Administration (MSHA).

ATTAP's focus is to develop guidelines and evaluation procedures for unconventional intersections – an increasingly popular new design strategy to minimize local arterial bottlenecks.

Over the past five years, joint efforts between MSHA and Chang's Traffic Safety Lab have made MSHA the nationwide leading institute on both fundamental research and field implementation of various unconventional intersections.
