This paper discusses whether changes in mobility practices affect value of travel time savings. It considers the relationship between the theory of the value of time and its practical application in traffic models and cost-benefit analysis. The discussion covers the need to distinguish variations in utility due to changes in the quantity and quality of time...

Pricing externalities from vehicle use such as road damage, vehicular emissions (both greenhouse gases and local pollutants), and congestion has become an important topic in the transportation sector in recent years. Road user charge pilot programs are being explored in various states in the U.S.; cities like New York and San Francisco are following in the...

Crash analysis methods typically use annual average daily traffic as an exposure measure, which can be too aggregate to capture the safety effects of variations in traffic flow and operations that occur throughout the day.  Flow characteristics such as variation in speed and level of congestion play a significant role in crash occurrence and are not...

The Regional Transportation Management Center (RTMC) at the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) deploys a large number of traffic detectors in the Twin Cities’ freeway network and continuously collects traffic data. While RTMC mainly uses the data for traffic and incident management, the TFA (Traffic Forecasting and Analysis) office uses the...

In Wyoming, most county paved roads were built decades ago without following minimum design standards. However, the recent increase in industrial/mineral activities in the state requires developing an efficient pavement management system (PMS) for local paved roads. The new PMS which is currently being developed depends on the present serviceability index (PSI...

Given the potential of transit-bus automation, it is critical to evaluate the benefits and challenges from early implementations. A well-designed evaluation can quantify such societal benefits as improving travel time, increasing mobility, and raising transit ridership. This guide aims to assist transit stakeholders with designing and implementing evaluations...

The disc-shaped compact tension (DCT) fracture energy test has been shown to discriminate between asphalt mixtures with respect to their thermal cracking potential. This research refines the DCT fracture energy testing procedure, identifies needed adjustments in asphalt mixture to increase fracture energy, determines the suitability of DCT-test-based parameters...

This report presents the results of a research project commissioned by Austroads to investigate whether the currently used Australian general-purpose (GP) cement which complies with AS 3972, and which may contain up to 7.5% limestone as a mineral addition, could be replaced with a cement proposed by the cement industry, which would contain 12% limestone, could...

Decisions made regarding driver sight distance at rural intersections are complex and require considerations for safety, efficiency, and environmental factors. Sight distance, cross-traffic velocity, and vehicle placements significantly affect driver judgment and behavior atthese intersections. A series of rural, two-lane thru-STOP simulated intersections with...

It is critical to understand the travel behavior of pedestrians and cyclists on Louisiana’s roadways.  Not only do pedestrian and cyclist counts assist in research for safety, but these statistics are also essential for planners and policymakers when evaluating the usage of roadways and dictating infrastructure spending. Better understanding of...

Connected vehicle technology creates new opportunities for obtaining knowledge about the surrounding traffic and using that knowledge to optimize individual vehicle behaviors. This project creates an interdisciplinary group to study vehicle connectivity, and this report discusses three activities of this group. First, we study the problem of traffic state (...

The performance of flexible and rigid pavements is known to be closely related to properties of the base, subbase, and/or subgrade. However, some recent research studies indicate that the performance predicted by this methodology shows a low sensitivity to the properties of underlying layers and does not always reflect the extent of the anticipated effect/ So...
