A study was conducted to develop recommendations for short span concrete structure type selection based on analyses of existing structure costs and performance data from South Dakota roadway systems. Through a combination of data sources, including the PONTIS database, local owner and inspector surveys...

 

The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program was implemented to provide funding to transportation projects that contribute to air quality improvements. Wyoming has used these funds for a number of years to apply dust suppressants to unpaved roads around the state. Many of these...

 

This study is part of a multiple year study conducted at the University of Wyoming to assess the effectiveness of dust suppressant treatments on gravel roads. The multiple year study was conducted to assist the Wyoming Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration optimize the use...

 

An experimental research study was conducted to evaluate the constructability, durability, and visibility of alternative pavement marking materials and application practices in South Dakota and to assess the cost-effectiveness of pavement marking alternatives for use on concrete and asphalt pavements. The...

 

A study was conducted to investigate implementation of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) in South Dakota. Accelerated bridge construction is defined as construction practices that employ innovative techniques to reduce on-site construction time and interruption to traffic. The main objective of this...

 

This study addresses both structural and surfacing issues associated with unpaved roads subjected to heavier traffic applications. Different gravel types with various dust suppressants including recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and soil stabilizers were evaluated in an attempt to provide the best road...

 

SAFETEA-LU contains language indicating that State Department of Transportation (DOTs) will be required to address safety on local and rural roads. It is important for state, county, and city officials to cooperate in producing a comprehensive safety plan to improve statewide safety. This legislation...

 

This research focuses on finding a method for creating cost effective and innovative steel bridges in Colorado. The design method that was discovered to create this cost efficiency was designing the beams as simply supported for non-composite dead loads, beam weight and wet concrete, and then making...

 

This report documents the research underway at the Utah Traffic Lab (UTL) that will contribute to the development of the user cost manual. This study evaluates the impact of various work zone scenarios caused by roadway rehabilitation projects in Utah. The results for different scenarios are tabulated...

 

This paper evaluates the impact of various I-15 reconstruction closure scenarios on the travelers in the Ogden area. The purpose of the research was to investigate the impact of the scenarios and facilitate decisions about future maintenance of traffic during the reconstruction.
