Urban traffic networks consisting of partially blocked roads often need to remain open to traffic before, during, and after disasters because of their vital roles to hazard preparation, emergency response, and recovery of urban communities. Conducting effective traffic planning of disrupted transportation...

 

An efficient and timely rescue of injured people by emergency medical services (EMS) is essential to saving as many lives as possible following disasters. Disrupted traffic networks due to the failures of transportation infrastructure (e.g., bridges) following major disasters like earthquakes affect...

 

When designing transportation infrastructure, stormflow hydrographs are commonly estimated using synthetic unit hydrograph (UH) methods, particularly for ungauged basins. Current synthetic UHs either consider very limited aspects of basin geometry or require explicit representation of the basin flow...

 

Mitigating traffic congestion and reducing transportation emissions are among the leading goals of most local, regional, national, and international agencies. Several guidelines rely primarily on strategies that support the following: 1) mixed land-use and transit-oriented developments, 2) multimodal...

 

Highway project selection and scheduling are traditionally treated as two separate problems in the literature. It is critical to investigate how to select and schedule M&R projects in a way that can maximize their benefit or effectiveness while minimizing the traffic impacts of work zones across project...

 

Battery electric buses with zero tailpipe emissions have great potential to improve environmental sustainability and livability of urban areas. However, the problems of high cost and limited range associated with on-board batteries have substantially limited popularity of battery electric buses. The...

 

In recent years, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems have been gaining increasing popularity because of their effectiveness in improving urban mobility. The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) is the primary public transit provider in Salt Lake City and has implemented a 10.8-mile BRT route along 3500/3300 South...

 

Perception-reaction times (PRT) and deceleration rates are critical components in the design of highways and streets. This research has several objectives, including 1) evaluate differences in PRT and deceleration rates between crash and near-crash events, 2) assess the correlation between PRT and deceleration...

 

Using intelligent transportation systems to help report traveling conditions has been reserved for urban areas. The goal of this research was to help develop a new methodology for incorporating travel times calculated from intelligent transportation system (ITS) technology into Wyoming's road and weather...

 

Ambulance services continually strive for improvement of their emergency response operations to provide better service to the community. The difference of a couple minutes can be a crucial factor in the survival of a patient. Therefore, it is of great importance for ambulance services to have reliable...
