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.

Chapter 8 – Access of TAC’s Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads (GDG) provides a framework for the review and approval of access proposals, with the goal of ensuring safe and effective vehicle access. Chapter 8 was not updated with other GDG...

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...

The Guide to Bridge Hydraulics, Second Edition (2001) addresses hydraulic and hydrologic design issues related to bridge infrastructure, and is referenced in the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code and other publications. In view of the urgent need to adapt to...

Culverts beneath road embankments often remain unnoticed until a defect leads to rupture of the road link. Culvert failure represents a serious risk to road users and compromises the functionality of the road network. To maintain an adequate level of service,...

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...

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...

This project will develop a major national guide to complement the Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads (GDG) and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada (MUTCDC). The guide will focus on engineering aspects while referencing the multi-...

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...
