Cyclists and noncyclists have a wide range of perceptions of on-street bicycling facility designs — including sharrows, bike lanes, and buffered bike lanes — along a variety of roadway types, with and without curbside automobile parking. The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 941: Bicyclist Facility...

Spectroscopy, which is a study of interactions between matter and electromagnetic radiation that has been around for decades, provides a way of analyzing materials. Its methods can tell us exactly what a material contains and can produce unequivocal results that make it possible for highway agency personnel to quickly determine whether a material is or is not...

Pedestrians’ acceptance of automated vehicles (AVs) depends on their trust in the AVs. We developed a model to promote pedestrians’ trust in AVs through implicit communications. To empirically verify this model, we conducted a human subject study with 30 participants in a virtual reality environment. The study manipulated two factors: AV driving...

This project established protocols to help evaluate the utilization of chemical stabilization methods to potentially improve the engineering behavior of problematic soils with and without soluble sulfates within the state of Montana. In addition, construction life cycle cost analyses were used to compare existing approaches used by MDT versus chemical...

The glossary was published for the first time in 1994 with the purpose of assisting member countries during the collection of data on transport using the Common Questionnaire developed by the UNECE, the International Transport Forum and Eurostat. It has since evolved to cover all areas of transport statistics. The present fifth edition is the result of...

The first edition of this report, in 2009, provided a comprehensive industry reference for the management of airport deicing runoff. The second edition has been wholly updated to reflect the latest industry practices. The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Research Report 14: Deicing Planning Guidelines and Practices for Stormwater...

This report analyses the potential and the prerequisites for reaching the National Transport Plans targets of only selling zero-emission passenger cars, small light commercial vehicles (Vans) and city buses in 2025, large vans in 2030 and that 50% of new trucks and 75% of new long distance buses shall be zero-emission by 2030. The passenger car target for 2025...

Travel demand management (TDM) is being implemented in numerous different ways throughout the world, to address congestions issues and encourage modal shift. This research outlines some of the many TDM strategies being used internationally to provide insights of potential value for the New Zealand context. This information is presented through six city case...

With the increased use of electronic devices, distracted driving is assumed to be one of the main causes of crashes. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has demonstrated interest in addressing distracted driving. However, the real impact of distracted driving on traffic crashes in Illinois is still unclear because of what appears to be a lack of...

This study demonstrated that Type 2205 stainless steel strand can be used as a replacement for conventional ASTM A416 steel strands where an increase in service life is required.  The benefit and practicality of using Type 2205 stainless steel strand in prestressed piles were determined from two tasks performed in this study. First, a corrosion...

This document reports the results of testing to characterize the existing radio frequency signal environment. Specifically, the USDOT’s test plan sought to identify the interference impacts to transportation’s 5.9 GHz Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) operations from today’s unlicensed Wi-Fi devices (known as unlicensed national...
