Creating bicycle transportation networks : a guidebook by Robert D Sykes ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An Investigation of water quality in runoff from stockpiles of salvaged concrete and bituminous paving ( Book )
4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Stockpile Runoff Project addressed environmental concerns regarding the quality of runoff water from salvaged pavement stockpiles. Three experimental stockpiles were studied. One pile consisted of coarse concrete, a second consisted of fine concrete material, and the third consisted of salvaged bituminous material (recycled asphalt product) obtained from a pavement milling project. The leachate water from the piles flowed through a sampling and flow monitoring system with data loggers and automated sequence samplers. Composite water samples were analyzed using EPA approved methods and quality control protocols
Lighted guidance devices : intelligent work zone traffic control : environmental modulation of drivers' perception of vehicle speed by M Vercruyssen ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annually, thousands of highway workers risk serious injury and death from drivers who enter work zones too fast or accelerate after entering the zone and then, because of their excess speed relative to the environmental limitations, have insufficient time to avoid accidents in the zone. Slow-moving vehicles are a problem in reducing traffic flow. This research investigated the effectiveness of a system of pulsing lights, that give the illusion of movement (Phi phenomenon), in causing drivers to unknowingly synchronize their vehicle speed with the light pulses. Forty drivers participated. Each participant made 15 passes through the work zone
Minnesota's experience with scrap shingles in bituminous pavements by David W Janisch ( Book )

Innovative herbicide sprayers for roadsides, slopes and ditches by Claudius Toussaint ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) has been active in developing the best technology for roadside vegetation control. One method, herbicide spraying, helps eliminate unwanted vegetation. Treatment of unwanted weeds often requires the use of different herbicides. Sprayers must have the capacity to spray more than one chemical at a time, negotiate rough terrains, and apply herbicides safely and in a way that preserves the environment. This report presents the results from testing and evaluating four automated sprayers: The B & B Ditch Sprayer has the lowest net annual savings of the four tested sprayers. The Wanner Sprayer is more economical for use in large districts or in areas with extensive road miles. The Micro-Track Sprayer has the highest rate of return, and also reduces annual costs. The SCS Sprayer has the highest net annual savings and also can monitor, tabulate, and print all vital statistics. The report details product features, testing, and results
Use and operation of advance warning flashers at signalized intersections by Allan Klugman ( Book )

Minnesota Department of Transportation trunk highway 169 dynamic ramp metering evaluation ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents an evaluation of dynamic ramp metering on a highway in Minnesota. The study looks at changes in traffic performance with regard to traffic flow, congestion levels, travel times, and accident rates before and after implementation of dynamic ramp metering
Minnesota Intelligent Driving Environment Research (MINDER) Program by Peter A Hancock ( Book )
3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of the Minnesota Intelligent Driving Environment Research (MINDER) program is to create the common simulation resource for human factors and safety researchers in respect to Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) programs. To accomplish this, we have created a simulation capability to re-create part of the I-35W Metropolitan area corridor from the Cross-town commons to just south of downtown Minneapolis. Our purpose in creating this was to allow researchers on different programs to use a common simulation environment
Are Minnesotans aware of the dangers of railroad crossings? by Linda Dolan ( Book )

Retroreflective sheeting materials on highway signs by Donna Tranchida ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a road research project, older drivers were asked to read street names as soon as they were able as they were approaching an intersection. The signs were always on the farsides of the intersection but could be either on the right or left side. Intersections of three levels of compplexity were used. A repeated measures design was used. The implications for driving safety were discussed in the context of visual information processing workload, divided attention and multitasking
Following advice from traffic advisories : final report by Wende L Dewing ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents data using multiple-choice questionnaires to learn how drivers respond to traffic information in the form of advisory messages. Two experiments, comprising 112 participants, were conducted using the same technique and yielding similar results. The traffic information messages presented to participants varied in three respects: quantitativeness of information, imperativeness of advice, and timeliness of information. Two additional factors were examined: the amount of traffic congestion stated to be directly observable on the route and the stated accuracy of messages received in the past. Results obtained from the questionnaires indicate that the structure of the traffic message did influence the driver behavior
Institutional barriers to the adoption of electronic data collection and interchange as it relates to commercial vehicles by Frederick Beier ( Book )

Selection of flexible pavement backcalculation software for the Minnesota Road Research Project by David A Van Deusen ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents the results of an evaluation process of several different flexible pavement backcalculation programs. The objective of this study was to compare the performance of the candidate programs in terms of useability and accuracy of backcalculation results. This was accomplished by evaluating the selected programs using both field and simulated data. The results of the analysis were used as the basis for selecting a program for routine analysis of Mn/ROAD pavement deflection data. In situ pavement strains were measured during falling-weight deflectometer tests. The measured strains were then compared to backcalculated strain values from each program. In addition to the field tests, a series of hypothetical pavement structures with a range of prescribed layer thicknesses and moduli were analyzed to obtain surface deflection data. These surface deflections were then used as input for each program involved in the study. The output from each program was compared to the expected values
Blue Earth County CSAH 30 Superpave level I mix design by James L Schmidt ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) completed the first county highway SUPERPAVE (trademark) project in Minnesota in Blue Earth County during August 1995. This project brought SUPERPAVE (trademark) technology from the laboratory to the field and obtained real Minnesota mix comparisons between the standard Marshall mix design and the new SUPERPAVE (trademark) system; gathered and analyzed data from actual field studies; and demonstrated new equipment and testing procedures to state, county, and city staff. Equipped with a gyratory compactor for on-site testing, the Mn/DOT mobile laboratory provided Level I mix design and production testing on a portion of the 3.5-mile (5.6-km) overlay project. This project used unmodified asphalt binders
