Various North American transportation agencies have implemented several preventative maintenance techniques to improve pavement performance and safety. The Region of York, located north east of Toronto, Ontario, has been resurfacing and remedying pavements with microsurfacing treatments to improve the pavement surface conditions. Often times these maintenance methods were selected because they seemed the most appropriate given a budget constraint however little was known if these treatments impacted road safety. The Region of York made their road and safety data accessible for the purpose of this research. Thus the focus of this thesis is to gain an understanding of how microsurfacing and resurfacing treatments impact road safety to help the Region of York and potentially other jurisdictions make more sound decisions when selecting pavement maintenance treatments.Various North American transportation agencies have implemented several preventative maintenance techniques to improve pavement performance and safety.
