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....

 

For highways located in different counties and cities across the country, specific conditions of weather, terrain, traffic characteristics, highway conditions, population and economic development are all different. Driving environments, traffic accidents and injury risks have strong interactions, which...

 

Each year thousands of people are killed and injured due to weather-related crashes. While outcomes of many incidents could not be changed, many accidents could be avoided through implementation of intelligent transportation systems. Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) have been adopted by transportation...

 

An attempt is made to integrally evaluate the safety of large trucks on mountainous highways. The I-70 corridor in Colorado is chosen to demonstrate the methodology because of its typical mountainous terrain and adverse weather conditions. First, the ten-year historical accident records are analyzed...

 

The objective of this research is to investigate the injury severity of truck drivers by studying MV and SV accidents involving trucks on rural highways separately. By using multinomial logit models, the complex interactions between roadway characteristics, driver characteristics, accident characteristics...

 

Traveler Information Systems, a part of the larger field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), were originally utilized in urban areas to reduce congestion. Traveler information has become increasingly important in rural areas, especially in areas with adverse weather conditions such as Wyoming....

 

This study will analyze the effectiveness of traveler information, with a focus on the use of DMSs on the I-80 corridor between Laramie and Cheyenne in southeast Wyoming, using several methods including evaluation of the consistency of past DMS messages, surveys of both frequent and random travelers...

 
Inclement Weather Signal Timings (Jul 2000, MPC-01-120)

This study examines signal timing in inclement weather conditions. With the completion of the Utah DOT's Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), UDOT will have the capability to change signal timing plans from a central location by communicating with each controller through fiber optic technology....
