Roadside safety is a critical aspect of transportation management, with elements like rigid obstacles, guardrails, clear zones, and side slopes significantly impacting accident outcomes. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides a valuable rating system for departments of transportation (DOTs)...

 

Understanding ramp queue length and queuing time is important for transportation agencies to manage and operate the ramps with optimum performance. Since these data are collected with conventional sensor systems such as coils, they are prone to error, especially during traffic congestion. The increased...

 

The purpose of this research project was to investigate and determine the reasons for premature deterioration of the geogrid-reinforced pavement system on the section of SR-10 between Muddy Creek and Emery, Utah. The statistical analyses and evaluations indicate that the structural design of the primary...

 

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) needs to respond quickly and adapt to the coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure continuation of critical infrastructure support and relief for the American people. Since early March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant impact on traffic across the United...

 

Regular inspection and maintenance of culverts are critical to ensure the safe functioning of transportation infrastructure systems, preventing injuries, loss of life, and significant financial damage. Various state departments of transportation (DOTs) and the American Association of State Highway and...

 

This report documents the effort to develop a practical relation between the cracking tolerance index and portions of the dynamic modulus curves of asphalt mixtures. A review of practices used to create asphalt mixtures dynamic modulus master curves, based on NCHRP reports and other relevant literature...

 

This report describes the research efforts aimed at determining the repeatability of the IDEAL-CT test for use as part of the balanced asphalt mix design process. Three mixes in common production in northern Utah were investigated by three different labs experienced in performance testing. Within-lab...

 

This project presents a comprehensive study on enhancing snowplowing routes in 12 regions in northern Utah. The research employs both exact and approximate methods to identify snowplowing routes that lead to reductions in total travel time, turnaround time, and deadhead miles by an average of 4.87%...

 

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...
