Crowdsourcing for Advancing Operations - Increasing quality and quantity of operations data using crowdsourcing enables staff to apply proactive strategies cost effectively and make better decisions that lead to safer and more reliable travel while protecting privacy and security of individual user data.
e-Ticketing and Digital As-Builts - Converting paper-based materials ticketing systems and as-built plans into electronic (e-Ticketing) workflows and digital as-builts enhances the accessibility of highway project data. e-Ticketing improves the tracking, exchange, and archiving of materials tickets. Digital information, such as 3D design models and other metadata, enhances the future usability of as-built plans for operations, maintenance, and asset management.
Next Generation TIM: Integrating Technology, Data, and Training - The innovation aims to increase traveler and responder safety and improve the movement of goods on all roadways by providing new tools, data and training mechanisms. Both new and existing TIM programs, including local agency and off-interstate applications can benefit from using enhanced TIM practices on their roadways.
Targeted Overlay Pavement Solutions (TOPS) - Pavement overlays represent a significant portion of highway infrastructure dollars. State and local highway agencies can maximize this investment and help ensure safer, longer-lasting roadways by employing innovative overlay procedures that will improve pavement performance, lessen traffic impacts, and reduce the cost of pavement ownership.
UHPC for Bridge Preservation and Repair - Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is a new material for bridge construction that has become popular for field-cast connections between prefabricated bridge elements. Bridge preservation and repair is an emerging and promising application for UHPC. UHPC-based repair solutions are robust, and offer superior strength, durability, and improved life-cycle cost over traditional methods. State and local agencies can deploy UHPC for bridge preservation and repair to maintain or improve bridge conditions.
