The impetus of this research is to meet the growing need for accurate and practical methods to support traffic analysis in work zones. This research examines the application of two classes of traffic analysis models, macroscopic sketch analysis and microscopic traffic simulation, to work zones. The research...

 

The ITS Plan is a strategic document that addresses the unique needs and priorities of the Bismarck-Mandan area and matches those needs with relevant ITS technologies. The plan provides the roadmap for types of ITS technologies, location for possible deployment, tentative dates for deploying these applications...

 

This study provides a theoretical evaluation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) strategies in small-medium size areas to alleviate missed connections, enhance service, and attract more transit riders. Several scenarios are evaluated, involving two TSP strategies; existing and reduced bus headways; and...

 

This study examined the feasibility of implementing Incident Management Systems (IMS) in small/medium size urban areas. It used a case study of the I-29 corridor in Fargo, ND. The INTEGRATION simulation model was used to estimate the potential benefits of an IMS which employs Advanced Traveler Information...

 

This report determines motorists' preferences and attitudes toward using advanced traveler information systems (ATIS) at highway-rail intersections (HRIs). Intelligent Transportation Systems which include real-time information for motorists can provide cost-effective solutions to reducing delay and congestion...

 

This report documents the findings of the National Peer Exchange on Educational and Technical Assistance to Motor Carriers and Commercial Vehicle Drivers (ETA). The report identifies ETA best practices observed during site visits to the participating states and trucking companies.

 

This paper investigates the application of advanced detection, traveler information, and advanced signal control systems to reduce congestion and incidents at railroad crossings. The study uses a traffic simulation model, TRAF-CORSIM, to evaluate the most effective scenario using ITS to alleviate railroad...

 

This report documents the findings of the National Peer Exchange on Hours-of-Service (HOS) Compliance that was conducted by a team of state and federal motor carrier safety delegates. It identifies states' best practices in the area of HOS compliance observed during site visits to 11 states during 1...

 

This study describes eight innovative financing methods (e.g., rural improvement districts) and 14 cost-reducing strategies (e.g., sharing equipment) that local governments in Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming currently are using. County road officials identified...

 

The purpose of this project is to provide state Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) personnel with a sufficient understanding of a performance-based system to begin implementing it in their state programs.
