Using reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) has grown significantly since the oil embargo of the 1970s. The National Asphalt Pavement Association reported that over 71 million tons of RAP were used in 2014 (NAPA 2015). RAP was traditionally used in warm-mix asphalt (WMA) and hot-mix asphalt (HMA) construction, including conventional and thin HMA overlays, but there...

This report explores the relationships between transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) strategies and cooperative driving automation (CDA). It presents a high-level concept of operations (ConOps) in support of the CARMA PlatformSM sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration Office of Operations Research and Development. Developing this...

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) maintains over two hundred steel bridges constructed with types of steel which are unknown. Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC) researchers have developed a procedure for determining steel tensile properties (0.2% yield strength and ultimate tensile strength) which can be used to help identify unknown steels. The...

Non-exhaust emissions of particulate matter constitute a little-known but rising share of emissions from road traffic and have significant negative impacts on public health. This report synthesizes the current state of knowledge about the nature, causes, and consequences of non-exhaust particulate emissions. It also projects how particulate matter emissions...

This report presents a practical process (referred to as a "tool") to guide practitioners through the selection of the appropriate On-Road Public Transport (ORPT) priority treatments for any road scenario. This step-by-step process can be used for applications relating to existing roads or a new/greenfield road development. It considers all forms of...

An increasing number of Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS) have been installed at new or upgraded intersections to assist people with vision impairment to navigate streets. For un-signalized intersections and intersections without APS, people with vision impairment have to rely on their own orientation and mobility skills to gather necessary information to...

This Manual is a guide for quantifying and evaluating access for anybody interested in truly understanding how to measure the performance of transport and land use configurations. It contains enough to help transport and planning professionals achieve a more comprehensive look at their city or region than traditional transport analysis allows. It provides a...
