Minnesota county engineers have sometimes observed heaves and dips near centerline culverts during cold winter months. In these instances, during the late winter and early spring, the area where a culvert has been replaced does not heave or heaves only slightly, while the roadway on either side of the replaced culvert heaves. The heave and dip disappear...

While pricing of managed lanes has been in place for over 20 years, most of the projects have been conversions of existing high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes into high-occupancy-toll (HOT) lanes. These are the first generation projects. This primer explores the evolution of first-generation pricing strategies into more complex express toll lanes using new...

Public agencies are required by state and federal laws to provide accessibility on their right-of-way (ROW). Failure of public agencies to provide accessibility on their ROW has resulted in costly settlements. Accordingly, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) needs to provide information for local public agencies, consultants, contractors, and IDOT...

This report presents a consistent methodology to evaluate and report ITS asset performance from the road user perspective. It reviews current ITS performance evaluation practices amongst Austroads and road agencies. VicRoads methodology was adopted and generalised, and a five-step framework was established to retrieve, analyse and report on asset...

This study evaluated alternatives to raised/non-traversable medians on driveways and approaches. Raised medians are often considered as an effective technique to limit direct left-turns that may be due to a significant number of conflict points. The raised medians provide an added benefit of improved corridor aesthetics. This research effort specifically...
