Speed limits play a pivotal role in traffic safety on mountainous roadways. Due to Wyoming's unique conditions, designing mountainous roadways with appropriate design speeds is challenging. These roadways are characterized by adverse weather conditions and tight horizontal curves with steep downgrades...

 

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...

 

The objective of this study was to simulate the stress-displacement behavior of a flexible debris-flow mitigation structure with a three-dimensional finite element model (FEM). Flexible, steel ring-net structures are becoming state-of-practice for debris-flow mitigation in mountainous terrain. These...

 

This report explains the various data inputs and outputs associated with the travel demand model (TDM) developed for estimating traffic volumes on low-volume roads in Wyoming. This study incorporated tourism-related data into the TDM and developed methods to estimate traffic volume on low-volume roads...

 

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...

 

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...

 

The purpose of the initial project was to establish a baseline for the evaluation of proposed fatigue mitigation efforts, to demonstrate the utilization of measures of sleep and fatigue, and to gather initial data for comparison to other previous studies. Results demonstrated that there was enough data...

 

A model of investment in basic track components is estimated from 1985-2008 data for Class I railroads. Network size is measured in miles of road (MOR), while traffic is measured in revenue gross ton-miles (RGTM). In addition to MOR and RGTM, the model includes railroad indicator and time variables....

 

Over the last two decades, the use of advanced scientific and data-driven statistical methods has been continuously evolving to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on our roadways. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Highway Safety Manual (HSM) was...
