Flexible Highway Barriers (May 2008, MPC-08-198)

Highway barriers exist in part to protect life and property from excessive danger as part of normal road usage. Typically, these barriers can be characterized as stiff and passive. In this study, we report on the potential use of highly flexible materials that maintain the effective resistance to load...

 

Because of the importance of safety, and the potential benefits for both the general public and the commercial vehicle industry of improving safety, the main goal of this project is to identify those commercial vehicle-related technologies that, through successful adoption, have had a positive impact...

 

A study of collisions occurring at intersections along State routes in Utah was conducted. The number of crashes, the crash severity score and, for selected locations, the crash rate were determined and "ranked" for intersections within the Utah Department of Transportation's Region 1, Region 2, Region...

 

A testing facility for temporary longitudinal barriers was constructed at Colorado State University's Engineering Research Center which allows manufacturer's the opportunity to test their safety barriers prior to full-scale federal testing. This facility enables manufacturers to subject their products...

 

The movement of freight within the state of Wyoming is very critical to Wyoming's economy as well as the national economy. Wyoming's transportation system provides a vital link for the movement of commodities across the United States, in addition to providing access to the mineral, industrial, and agricultural...

 

The study focuses on ascertaining information on user willingness-to-pay and their perceptions of funding for improving gravel roads which support freight transportation service in rural areas. The research considers safety, road type, and maintenance valuation for both gravel and paved road surfaces....

 

Congestion in Salt Lake City is showing an increasing trend and, as congestion reaches higher levels, benefits of the HOV lanes will also increase. It needs to be determined whether the Salt Lake Valley HOV lanes are performing effectively in terms of travel time benefits, safety and the ability to carry...

 

This research project, "Evaluating and Improving Pedestrian Safety in Utah," was initiated in December 2000. Two interim reports have been prepared thus far, including Facilitation of Pedestrian Crossings in 28 States and Literature Review of Pedestrian Safety Measures (Cottrell 2001) and Literature...

 

This report describes a research project conducted at Colorado State University to evaluate the effect of road dust suppression on unpaved road maintenance schemes. A field-based method was used to measure the effect of road soil physical characteristics on the effectiveness of some of the commonly...

 

A variety of portable safety and security barriers for directing traffic (public events, sports facilities, etc.), and securing private and public locations against access (court houses, schools, etc.) have been developed. Some higher capacity systems have been developed for use on and around high speed...
