This evaluation determined the change in crash frequency, type or severity associated with longitudinal sinusoidal rumble strips on rural two-lane undivided Minnesota roadways constructed between 2018 and 2022. Crash modification factors (CMFs) were estimated using cross-sectional analysis to compare crash experience of locations with sinusoidal rumble strips (...

As states and localities adopt a vision of zero traffic fatalities, greater attention is being given to communication, collaboration, leveraging resources, and applying a systemic approach to traffic safety which requires a change in culture among road users and traffic safety agencies. This change in culture is tied to education, engineering, enforcement, and...

Commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safety is a major concern in the United States, including the District of Columbia (DC), where CMVs make up 15% of traffic. This research uses a comprehensive approach, combining statistical analysis and machine learning techniques, to investigate the impact of road pavement conditions on CMV accidents. The study integrates...

Lane departure crashes are a leading cause of fatalities and injury crashes on roadways. To solve this problem, innovative marking in the form of contrasted white on concrete sections and orange marking in work zones were evaluated for their safety benefits. A highway safety manual approach was taken to evaluate the crash reduction benefits from each marking...

Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) is the most widely used construction material due to its versatility, durability, and economy (Mindess et al. 2003). However, PCC is also a quasi-brittle material that has low tensile strength and ductility, as well as weak resistance to the propagation of cracks. Also, problems related to shrinkage, durability and workability...

There are over 590,000 bridges dispersed across the roadway network that stretches across the United States alone. Each bridge with a length of 20 feet or greater must be inspected at least once every 24 months, according to the Federal Highway Act (FHWA) of 1968. This research developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based framework for bridge and road...

Two-lane highways comprise a considerable percentage of the nation’s roads. A critical component required in the design of two-lane highways is the passing sight distance (PSD). In cases where it is inadequate, no-passing zones are established. There are multiple techniques that are employed for measuring the PSD in the field and the Wyoming Department of...

The objective of this research project is to understand factors (especially curb/corner radii) affecting safety at intersections involving right-turning vehicles and pedestrians/bicyclists. A mixed-methods approach was used, combining crash data analysis with analysis of observational video data. For the crash analysis, data were assembled about more than 1,000...

Precipitation-induced landslides pose risks to humans through property damage, disruption of infrastructure, injury, and loss of life. These risks may be altered by climate change, as changes in vegetation cover and associated root cohesion might lead to a change in areas susceptible to landslides. We investigate this possibility through Monte Carlo simulations...

Geohazards—such as landslides, liquefaction, rockfalls, subsidence, expansive/collapsible soils, and erosion—can pose major threats to transportation assets. Extreme weather events can also trigger and/or exacerbate geohazards, and the increasing incidence of such events is a concern in certain regions of the United States. A geohazards management...

The objective of this project was to demonstrate and evaluate a highly efficient and economical method for evaluation of the condition of bridge decks in Alaska. The method, Aerial Infrared Thermography (Aerial IR), implements traditional infrared thermography from a fixed-wing aircraft using high resolution infrared and visual cameras. To address the objective...

This project performed preliminary work to support use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)-based for bridge inspections, providing an economical and safer alternative to conventional inspection practices. The main challenge is that most existing technologies rely on general-purpose UAV platforms and there is no verified methodology for UAV-enabled bridge...
