The long-term performance of pothole patches largely depends on the selection of the patching method. A number of pothole patching methods are in practice in Minnesota and other nearby states. However, pavement maintenance crews often encounter problems in selecting the most appropriate patching method because proper guidelines are not available. The objective...

On-road public transport provides the ability for people to move between their homes, employment, recreation and services efficiently with less road space being required per passenger than private car use. In response to this, practitioners in many Australian and New Zealand cities are putting in place road space and signalling techniques and technologies which...

The objectives of this report are twofold: (1) to develop network-based measures for systematically characterizing the redundancy of transportation networks, and (2) to develop computational methods for evaluating the network-based redundancy measures. Travel alternative diversity and network spare capacity are developed as two quantitative measures to capture...

Steel corrosion on bridges and ancillary structures due to environmental effects and deicing chemicals is a serious problem for Minnesota's infrastructure. The ability to detect, locate, and measure corrosion is an important aspect of structure inspection. Accurate thickness measurements and corrosion mapping are essential for determining load capacity of...

This report identifies road design improvements to better cater for the safe passage of heavy vehicles through railway level crossings. Crashes involving heavy vehicles have been identified as a major safety issue in Australia and New Zealand with the volume of heavy vehicles expected to significantly increase over the next five to 10 years. An analysis...

This report describes the research conducted by the University of Minnesota and project partners on roadway embankment overtopping by flood water. Roadway overtopping is a major safety concern for Minnesota transportation managers because of the potential for rapid soil erosion and mass wasting resulting in partial or complete failure of the roadway embankment...

In 2010, the Minnesota Department of Transportation installed the first Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI) in the City of Willmar. Since 2010, seven more were constructed, with more planned. The RCI concept is gaining popularity in several states, including Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. This report includes findings from a...

Culvert inspection is a key enabler that allows Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to manage the state’s highway culvert system. When quantitative detail on culvert condition is required, an inspector will need to use enhanced inspection technologies. Enhanced inspection technologies such as; laser ring profiling, sonar, inclinometer, mandrel...
