Hot Technologies button

511 Traveler information...
readily provide information and highway and transit conditions to travelers by telephone.

Accelerated Construction Technology Transfer (ACTT)...
This technology effectively reduces construction time while enhancing quality and safety on highways.

Air Void Analyzer...
This technology can be used to measure air content, specific surface, and spacing factor of fresh Portland cement concrete.

Asset Management Guide...
Transportation Asset Management (TAM) is a decisionmaking process for allocating resources.

Augured Piles...
This technology eliminates the need for a temporary casing.

Border Wizard...
pc-based software model accurately simulates all cross-border movements of autos, buses, trucks, and pedestrians.

Cable Median Barriers...
are more forgiving than traditional concrete and metal beam barriers and can be effective when installed on sloping terrain.

Improved Decisionmaking Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS-T)...
A software program that allows for manipulation, analysis, and display of geographically referenced data.

Load and Resistance Factor Design and Rating of Bridges, Earth Retaining Structures, and Culverts...
Provides for more uniform levels of safety, which should lead to superior serviceability and long-term maintainability.

Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS)...
A tool that can provide maintenance managers with precise surface condition forecasts and treatment recommendations for specific routes.

Pavement Smoothness Methodologies...
covers smoothness test methods, equipment specifications, and equipment-certification programs.

PEDSAFE...
Enable practitioners to effectively select and review engineering, education, or enforcement treatments.

Prefabricated Bridge Elements and Systems...
Manufactured on-site or off-site, under controlled conditions, and brought to the job location ready to install.

QuickZone...
software tool for estimating and analyzing length of queues and delays in workzones.

Red Light Cameras...
automated enforcement of violations for running red lights.

Road Safety Audits (RSA)...
independent, multidisciplinary process for identifying and documenting safety issues on new and existing roadways.

Roundabouts...
Studies show that modern roundabouts can reduce intersection fatalities by up to 90 percent.

Rumble Strips...
Studies have shown that these strips yield a significant reduction in drift-off-road crashes.

Safe Speeds in Work zones...
portable speed limit signs that automatically display safe speed based on traffic conditions and nature of roadwork.

Transportation, Economics, and Land Use System (TELUS)...
helps State DOTs and metro planning organizations prepare annual transportation improvement programs.
