The research studied the possibility of harnessing solar energy through right-of-way associated structures, such as noise barriers and snow fences. A detailed survey was conducted with the general public, farmers, and utility companies to determine their acceptance of such an initiative. A large percentage of the general public, farmers, and utility companies...

When alternative incident management strategies are evaluated, there is often a need to convert reductions in incident clearance time to a monetary cost saving. In the past, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has used unit delay costs from other agencies to estimate incident congestion costs and the benefit of incident management programs. To...

Invasive species present a significant threat not just to ecosystems, but also to our nation’s infrastructure, the economy, and cultural resources. Recently the National Invasive Species Council (NISC) has brought attention to the impact invasive species have on federal infrastructure. This is an issue that is not well documented or understood. However,...

A comprehensive research investigation was carried out to investigate the use of recycled materials in Superpave asphalt mixtures in Missouri. The investigation involved sampling of aggregates, binders, plant-produced mixtures, and field cores followed by a rigorous lab testing program. Lab testing included an extensive binder extraction and recovery (E & R...
