As continued research on connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) shows promise for implementation, questions arise on how they may influence the future of geometric design of roadways and intersections. This workshop will explore possible scenarios that could change the geometric design process for all users and will facilitate discussion on how the criteria could be revised. Current research will be examined using multiple brief presentations. Finally, four breakout groups—focused on freeways and interchanges, intersections, highways, and methodology—will discuss foreseen changes and proactive strategies to ensure that geometric design meets the safety needs for all users during all phases of CAV implementation.
