During the past few decades, ramp metering control has been widely implemented in many U.S. states, including Utah. Numerous studies and applications have demonstrated that ramp metering control is an effective strategy to reduce overall freeway congestion by managing the amount of traffic entering the...

 

A new method for building seismically resilient bridges is proposed using accelerated bridge construction (ABC) methods. The hybrid two-column bridge bent consists of post-tensioned precast concrete columns with a buckling restrained brace (BRB) as an external energy dissipation device. The design of...

 

performance in the presence of variable road hazards. Road networks plagued by consistent weather or work zones affecting driving conditions are where VSL systems could improve safety. Depending on the road condition and objective of the VSL installation, the system could be advisory or regulatory. In...

 

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) driving features can impact traffic safety in many aspects owing to their improved driving behavior. On the other hand, road geometric design elements are mainly based on human reactions and behavior, which might affect safety depending on road layout and the parties...

 

Airport operational data are necessary for aviation decision-makers to quantitatively prepare airport master plans and fairly distribute national funds throughout the country. These data have other important applications, such as safety and security applications. Interestingly, most airports (i.e., typically...

 

Understanding the condition of roadway assets is important for transportation agencies to plan for future improvements and asset management purposes quantitatively. Since these assets are distributed across the country, a manual data collection system falls short of the automated methods due to time...

 

The use of precast concrete in bridge construction has been abundant in recent years because of its efficiency and superior quality control. Precast components are connected at the bridge site to reduce construction time and traffic disturbance. The Grouted Splice Sleeve (GSS) connection provides good...

 

This document presents the continuous effort to develop mechanical tests that can relate to the expected performance of asphalt mixtures once placed in the field. During a previous research project, asphalt mixtures of different compositions were collected from different locations across the state of...

 

Asphalt mixtures were collected from seven field projects and distributed to different laboratories to determine their potential for cracking. Samples were prepared in the lab for testing at two conditions: low, in-service temperatures using the bending beam rheometer device based on AASHTO TP-125 and...

 

A study was conducted in which cores were taken from pavements three years after construction. The flexibility index (FI) of the cores, a parameter that relates to intermediate temperature cracking, was measured in the lab and compared to the known values of the same material obtained during constructions....
