Various locations on Montana's roadways experience higher than typical crash and /or crash severity rates. In developing the CHSP, the Traffic Safety Bureau in conjunction with the State Highway Traffic Office (MDT-SHTSO) identified the most dangerous highway corridors on the national and state road systems in Montana. The purpose of this effort was to identify the State's most significant high-crash corridors and to then conduct an analysis of crash data to identify the predominant factors contributing to crashes in these locations. The information was then used to support the identification of specific countermeasures that could be applied to these corridors.
