In Development

At any one point in time, TAC has numerous projects in development, meaning they have received support in principle by relevant council(s) and the TAC Board of Directors. More information about each project is available by clicking on its title.  

The projects listed below are currently in development and funding partners are being sought.  To make a financial contribution and have a representative participate on a project steering committee, contact Geoff Noxon.

Over the past decade, emerging information technologies such as web-based computing and global positioning systems (GPS) have led to the development of more sophisticated and complex functionality (such as support for linear...

There are many approaches to assessing and mitigating noise and vibration effects from the construction and operation of new or upgraded roads, highways, bridges and light rail infrastructure. Assessment and mitigation measures focus on sensitive receptors such...

Road transportation technology is entering into a new era. Building on the decades-old foundation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS), rapid advances in connectivity, automation, artificial intelligence and sensing...

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...

Practitioners wishing to provide safe and effective traffic signal timing for all road users increasingly face dilemmas at traffic signal-controlled intersections when high-capacity active transportation facilities are deployed. As an example, bidirectional...

Land use and transportation changes influence each other – for example, suburban growth can lead to public pressure for more road capacity, while freeway extensions can encourage low-density urban expansion. More effective, integrated growth management...

Transportation pricing is a powerful motivator behind the choices individuals make, particularly in urban contexts where more travel options exist. Canada’s wide variety of current or envisioned transportation pricing tools includes parking fees,...

Provincial and municipal authorities are frequently asked to use non-standard colours and designs for crosswalks. These requests reflect a perception that bright colours and designs increase crosswalk conspicuity and enhance safety, or are intended to improve an...

Canada can, and needs to, do better in terms of road safety outcomes—and this starts with the appropriate training of industry practitioners. There is strong interest and need among TAC members in more formalized and easily...
