Nebraska - SPF Groupings
Written by Gentry White
Updated over a week ago

Nebraska organizes its segments and intersections into the following categories to generate meaningful Safety Performance Functions (SPFs). Each segment or intersection is placed into a group based on the criteria outlined below. An SPF is generated using the observed crash data from each of the segments/intersections in the group. This SPF is then used to support network screenings with predicted and expected performance measures for each associated roadway.
