Ultra-High Performance Concrete: A Robust Solution for Highway Infrastructure
 
04:55
Engineers are using ultra-high performance concrete, or UHPC, to design bridges that are more constructible, durable, and resilient. This video highlights the mechanical and durability properties of UHPC compared to conventional concrete and shows it in use on bridge construction projects in New York and Minnesota.

Alternative Intersections: Displaced Left Turns
 
05:16
The Displaced Left-Turn (DLT) intersection is an innovative, proven solution for improving safety and mobility at intersections. At a DLT, left-turns are relocated to an upstream crossover location. The direct left-turn at the main intersection is then able to occur simultaneously with the adjacent through movements, resulting in fewer conflicting movements, more efficient overall signal phasing and better progression and throughput.

Time-Lapse: Keg Creek Bridge Replacement
 
01:31
(Re-posted with permission from Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2)) This time-lapse video shows accelerated bridge construction (ABC) techniques being used by a local contractor with standard equipment to replace a three-span bridge on U.S. 6 over Keg Creek in Pottawattamie County, Iowa. The $2.7 million reconstruction project is a cooperative effort involving FHWA, the Iowa Department of Transportation and the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2). This Highways for LIFE demonstration project was also part of SHRP2 Renewal research which created standard bridge designs that can be adapted to a large number of bridge projects. The design scales ABC methods to typical projects so that the benefits of faster construction and advanced materials are replicated wherever possible. The goal is to make ABC techniques a standard part of bridge construction. In the Keg Creek demonstration, road closure was reduced from six months to two weeks. With the design standards developed in this project, the average contractor can apply ABC methods without special construction equipment. The video shows that only standard construction equipment was used. The bridge also features several innovative bridge elements, including a precast concrete deck on steel girders as the superstructure module; precast pier columns; prefabricated bridge approach pavements; full, moment-resisting ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) joint at the piers; and moment-resisting UHPC joints between deck panels. For its innovations, the project received an FHWA Highways for LIFE grant. For more information, click here: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/hfl/innovations/keg_creek.cfm

Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC)
 
01:59
Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) is the first operational implementation developed and tested on the FHWA Office of Operations Research and Development’s Innovation Research Vehicle Fleet. CACC allows a group of vehicles to communicate with each other using 5.9 GHz Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) and cellular networks to share speed, heading, location, and gap information with each other to implement coordinated advanced applications on freeways and arterials such as platooning in managed lanes. The research vehicle fleet offers an experimental connected automation research platform that provides advanced capabilities for and supports evaluation of future operational concepts.

Transportation Asset Management
 
08:23
Transportation agencies are responsible for maintaining our roads, bridges, tunnels, and other infrastructure assets. These agencies rely on tax dollars for funding transportation systems. Meanwhile, new construction and repair costs are increasing for our overburdened transportation system. Transportation agencies must use their tax dollars wisely to optimize service and minimize risk. Asset management is a strategic and systematic approach for managing transportation assets over their whole life. Asset management helps ensure that available funding addresses our highest priorities.

Automated Roadway Pavement Marker Placement System
 
03:24
It could be something you see stuntmen do in the movies. But this isn't the movies. These are actual road crew members manually placing raised pavement markers from underneath the applicator vehicle merely inches from highway traffic. It's considered one of the most dangerous jobs in roadway construction. Until now. With the advent of the Automated Roadway Pavement Marker System, the installation of raised pavement markers can now be performed more safely. The automated system eliminates the need for manual placement and therefore, reduces the road construction worker's exposure to traffic. It removes the worker from coming in contact with the high-temperature bitumen and therefore, the potential for being severely burned, an injury that is not uncommon in the manual placement method. The highway industry knew there had to be a better, more efficient system for installing raised pavement markers. The Highways for LIFE Technology Partnerships Program awarded Stay Alert Safety Services a grant to refine their prototype and field test the automated system under real-world conditions.

Alternative Intersections: Restricted Crossing U-Turns
 
07:20
The Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT) intersection is an innovative, proven solution for improving safety and mobility at intersections. The RCUT changes how through movements and left-turns occur along the minor route. Instead of proceeding directly through the intersection or making direct left-turns, minor route traffic first makes a right turn, followed by a U-turn a short distance downstream. This results in a pronounced overall safety benefit, and can also result in better travel times along an RCUT corridor.

Rebuilding Main Street, Littleton, NH
 
08:55
With high speed traffic and heavy trucks transitioning from the Interstate and coming into town, following the status quo to rebuild Main Street would have torn out the heart and soul of Littleton. Instead New Hampshire Department of Transportation decided to make an investment in the community's future. The project started out with experiments in narrowing sections of the roadway and adding back in angle parking. Despite some initial public weariness, the experiments got the citizenry passionate about the project, increased design awareness, and built support for change. The end result was a project that improved traffic flow without sacrificing community character. "Through traffic is important, but it can't be our primary motivation for what we do."

Intelligent Asphalt Compaction Analyzer
 
03:37
We expect performance and long life out of so many things we buy. From our computers and appliances to the vehicles we drive. Why not the same for the roads we drive on? Generally, pavement performance is not something motorists think about. But it is something pavement engineers think about -- a lot. And engineers know that achieving good compaction during construction is the most economical method of increasing the life span and performance of asphalt pavements. Compaction increases pavement density which makes our roads stronger and less prone to cracking and rutting. Longer lasting roads mean fewer work zones, delays, and lane closures. Better performance means a more comfortable ride. Traditionally, asphalt pavement is tested for density after rolling operations are completed. Conventional quality control techniques are often time consuming, costly, and can be destructive. Pavement cores are extracted and analyzed after completion of the operations. This method checks the pavement at individual points and does not reflect the overall quality of the entire asphalt pavement.

Lummi Nation Haxton Way Pedestrian Path and Lighting Project -- a FHWA Federal Lands Highway Indian Reservation Road Program Project. Haxton Way Pedestrian Path Whatcom County, Bellingham, Washington Partners: FHWA Federal Lands Highway Program, Lummi Nation Tribe, Washington State Department of Transportation, Bureau of Indian Affairs The Haxton Way Pedestrian Path was a safety improvement project for the Lummi Nation. Haxton Way is a heavily used main route through the Lummi Nation serving both vehicular traffic travelling at speeds commonly over 50mph and pedestrian/bicycle traffic. This narrow county road had little or no shoulders, lighting, and was bordered on both sides with deep ditches. With no accommodation for both types of traffic and little to no visibility, this created a dangerous situation that had resulted in numerous fatalities. The Lummi Nation in cooperation with Whatcom County developed this project to provide an 8 foot wide pathway with solar lighting for the safety of all traffic along Haxton Way, and did so in a very sensitive and sustainable way ensuring the safety of the community.
