Regular inspection and maintenance of culverts are critical to ensure the safe functioning of transportation infrastructure systems, preventing injuries, loss of life, and significant financial damage. Various state departments of transportation (DOTs) and the American Association of State Highway and...

Gravel road safety is a crucial area of road safety since gravel roads represent a substantial proportion of the entire nation's roadway network. Also, gravel roads pose inherent hazards that are otherwise absent in paved roads. Nonetheless, research related to assessing road conditions for county gravel...

Bridge inspection data is an essential step in the bridge asset management operation and the bridge management system. As such, a reliability-based, holistic framework was proposed to effectively collect reliable data and perform data fusion and information fusion of sensory data used for element-level...

A high-dimensional clustering-based sampling method for roadway asset condition inspection is proposed in this study. The method complements existing literature by selecting sample roadway segments that contain multiple types of assets (e.g., signage, shoulder work, pavement marking, etc.) for the accurate...

The current legally required two-year inspection interval for most bridges is not an efficient system for conducting inspections, because many bridges do not require inspections this frequently, while others would benefit from more frequent monitoring. The research presented herein is based on the premise...

Maintenance management has relied heavily on collecting asset condition information to plan maintenance activities and budget allocation. Data collection is often conducted on a sampling basis because of resource constraints. There is thus a perceived need for the development of an effective sampling...

This study was conducted to determine if efficiencies could be gained through the process of standardizing data storage mechanisms to permit diversity at the operating level while maintaining data compatibility for aggregation at higher levels in the organization. Transportation agencies use many computer...

This report describes the development of a Standard Modular Data Storage System. Features such as inventory data, pavement management data, and other maintenance data can be organized as modules in a common data repository. This repository can be imported into an enterprise database such as Informix....

A variety of computer tools are being used by UDOT to serve diverse maintenance management needs. Many of the tools are individually tailored for a specific purpose and lack the functionality to share data with other applications. This has resulted in the establishment of numerous databases which are...

Gravel Shortage Options (Dec 1996, MPC-96-65)

Some North Dakota counties are facing a shortage in quality gravel. Other counties may experience the same problem in the near future. Gravel pits in the state are scarce and counties consume substantial amounts of gravel for a large portion of their roads. Obtaining gravel from distant sources leaves...
