Innovative intersections and interchanges have proliferated in the State of Utah over the past several years. Continuous flow intersections and diverging diamond interchanges seem to offer improved traffic performance and safety due to their innovative designs. However, there are no clearly defined guidelines...

 

To facilitate the implementation of Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide in Wyoming, this research investigated the relationships between subgrade resilient modulus (Mr) and the dynamic cone penetration and the standard penetration test results, selected three best subgrade Mr predictive models...

 

Building upon the development of a measure of safety culture based on a simplified two-factor model of meaning and behavior, a further validation study of the safety culture instrument was undertaken. The Safety Culture Assessment Survey (SCAS) was administered to a large regional railroad organization...

 

This report describes methods that potentially can be incorporated into the performance monitoring and planning processes for freeway performance evaluation and decision making. Reliability analysis was conducted on the selected I-15 corridor by employing congestion frequency as the performance measure....

 

Most roads in the City of Madison, South Dakota were built more than 30 years ago, with chip seal as the primary maintenance practice. However, such treatments only provide temporary solutions to the surface and do not improve the structural deficiencies. To prevent accelerated pavement deterioration...

 

Transportation agencies use a variety of methods to evaluate the condition of pavements and the characteristics of their use. Methods range from in-pavement sensors to ride quality characterizations that require specially instrumented probe vehicles. However, the extensive labor, specialized training...

 

Providing acute medical care outside of the hospital, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is crucial in rural environments where hospitals are not close by and are difficult to access. This study used the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) South Dakota data to exemplify the establishment of data-driven...

 

Field samples were obtained from cores taken from multiple roads around the Salt Lake Valley in Utah and prepared for BBR testing. The response of field cores showed that even though the same binder grade used in the region was the same, the resulting mixtures have significant differences in creep moduli...

 

Depending on the location, highway bridges can often support considerable amounts of traffic. Due to the limitations on current earthquake forecasting techniques, a normal amount of traffic will also typically remain on a bridge when an earthquake occurs. In addition to traffic, scour effects are also...

 

This study was initiated to provide assistance to counties that were experiencing considerable impacts to their road systems from oil and gas drilling but were not receiving sufficient revenue to keep up with these impacts. As drilling expanded from Campbell County into Sheridan and Johnson counties...
