Improving roadway safety on Indian reservations requires a comprehensive approach. Limited resources, lack of crash data, and few cross-jurisdictions coordination has made it difficult for Native American communities to address their roadway safety concerns. A methodology to improve roadway safety has...

 

The sharp increase in travel volumes, shift in traffic mix, and large increases in crashes have transformed the traffic environment in the oil region of western North Dakota. Roads once used for local access and agricultural purposes now regularly serve the energy sector. Oil companies, workers, commercial...

 

Bridge inspection is an important phase in bridge management. In 2009, a joint American Society of Civil Engineers Structural Engineering Institute and AASHTO Ad-Hoc group was created to identify the issues in bridge safety and to study current bridge practices. This group recommended: "A more rational...

 

Automated vehicles promote road safety, fuel efficiency, and reduced travel time by decreasing traffic congestion and driver workload. In a vehicle platoon (grouping vehicles to increase road capacity by managing distance between vehicles using electrical and mechanical coupling) of such automated vehicles...

 

The overall project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of shear spiking (technique already developed through a previous project). Many timber railroad bridges are deficient but it is too costly to replace them; hence, inexpensive repair techniques are needed. The proposed project will provide the necessary...

 

The sharp increase in travel volumes, shift in traffic mix, and large increases in crashes have transformed the travel environment in the oil region of western North Dakota. Roads once used for local access and agricultural purposes now mostly serve expanding oil production. Oil companies, workers, commercial...

 

Improved emergency medical services (EMS) will impact traffic safety and public health in rural communities. Better planned, designed, and operated roadway networks that connect hospitals with communities in need will enhance EMS performance. To provide safe, timely and quality services, it is necessary...

 

The high societal cost of roadway crashes nationwide makes improving highway safety an important objective of transportation agencies. Recognizing this, Safety Management Systems (SMS) have been required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to encourage states to pursue and promote safety and...

 

This report summarizes the work performed during the second phase of a two-phase research project. The first phase focused on two main areas: freight safety and wind vulnerability, and the identification of critical infrastructure. Phase I also tackled another major but less defined task in bringing...

 

Alternatives to existing transportation truck escape ramps and crash barriers are examined using arrays of wood, bamboo, and fiberglass structural elements that act as energy absorbers as they deform. The behaviors of each material type are analyzed to determine if they have the necessary potential for...
