In absence of a comprehensive Canadian reference document, Canadian practitioners have been using road safety engineering guideline documents published by various international organizations, developed to suit their respective environments and operating...

Newly constructed or rehabilitated bridges are frequently surfaced with hot mix asphalt (HMA); however, achieving high quality asphalt mats on bridges presents many challenges.  To prevent damage to the bridge, vibratory compaction is usually not permitted...

Over the past decade, public-private partnerships (P3s) have become a common method for delivering major capital projects in Canada.  It is expected that P3s will continue to play an important role in delivering major transit infrastructure across Canada,...

Public agencies across Canada are developing processes and methodologies to evaluate and prioritize investments and optimize performance outcomes with available funds. There has been a convergent evolution of practices in performance-based decision making across...

Differing levels of knowledge and limited information are available for transportation engineering/design and environmental practitioners from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Poor planning of roadways can result in high wildlife-vehicle collision rates and related...

This project will be the latest in a series that has provided an important picture of transportation behaviour and trends in Canadian urban areas. The overall goal is to build a consistent, reliable database on urban transportation and to develop indicators for...

The load-carrying capacity of the roadway system depends upon highway structures, such as bridges and pavements. Bridge design considers various loading combinations the structure may carry during its service life such as dead load (weight of the bridge), live...
