Exploring key issues in public-private partnerships for highway development : summary of seminar proceedings ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
This report summarizes a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) seminar on key issues in public-private partnerships for highway transportation. The seminar provided an opportunity for participants representing a wide range of disciplines and interest groups to discuss a variety of policy issues related to public-private partnerships. These issues ranged from ideas for making partnership projects easier to develop to allowing new forms of partnerships to happen. The seminar raised a number of issues about the possibilities and problems of public-private partnerships and showed that much remains to be learned about the consequences of applying privatization principals to transportation. The report is organized as follows: Foreward and Opening Remarks of Stephen C. Lockwood, Associate Administrator for Policy, FHWA; Overview; Case Studies: California and Virginia; Panel on Public-Sector Perspectives of Public-Private Partnerships; Panel on Private-Sector Perspectives on Public-Private Partnerships; Reflections on the Seminar Proceedings; Appendix A: Seminar Participants; Appendix B: Seminar Agenda; and Appendix C: Toll Road Provisions of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA)

Value engineering study of guardrail and impact attenuator repair by Deborah Longhi Allen( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
This report summarizes the results, findings, and recommendations from a series of three value engineering meetings relating to the repair and maintenance of guardrail and impact attenuators. These meetings were conducted cooperatively by the Departments of Transportation of Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia under the leadership of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). If implemented, the recommendations detailed in the report can be expected to: (1) reduce the unit cost of attenuator maintenance, (2) reduce the cost of guardrail maintenance, (3) reduce the number of impacts and the resultant costs of repair and replacement, and (4) speed the repair/ replacement process; thus, reducing labor costs per incident
Implications of emerging travel trends, April 20-21, 1994 : conference proceedings ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
To explore specific travel issues implicit in the 1990 NPTS data set, FHWA's Office of Highway Information Management commissioned 12 papers focusing on specific topics to help explain important emerging travel trends and to identify key public policy issues, planning implications, and research needs. The issues addressed in these papers include the following: declines in carpooling; potential saturation of travel by male population; trip linking behavior; travel by women; travel by the elderly; and travel by households without vehicles. This summary of the conference proceedings is organized in a loose chronological fashion, following the order of conference events occurring during general sessions held both days. The four breakout session summaries have been grouped separately. Although the topics addressed by each breakout were relatively the same, different findings emerged regarding policy, planning, and research suggestions. The appendices include a participant list, the conference agenda, and breakout group members
Public and private sector roles in intelligent vehicle-highway systems (IVHS) deployment : final report : summary of seminar proceedings ( Book )

Operating larger trucks on roads with restrictive geometry : summary report by M Firestine( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Changes in the 1982 Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) allowing wider and longer trucks on the National Network have raised questions about highway safety. The Federal Highway Administration sponsored a study by Goodell-Grivas, Incorporated, that investigated the performance of trucks of various lengths and widths on roads with restrictive geometry. The report summarized here highlights the main findings of that study for transportation officials and practicing engineers. Field studies at both urban and rural sites indicated that truck drivers compensate for the reduced operating capabilities of larger trucks. Despite driver skill, however, trucks on urban roads encroached into other lanes on streets with widths less than 12 ft. Intersections with less than 60-ft corner radii caused some problems for most truck types, especially those wider than 102 in
Reducing runaway truck accidents through weight-based advisory speeds by M Firestine( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Current developments in truck design may worsen the problem of runaway trucks. Trucks are becoming heavier, and the design of more aerodynamic cabs and the use of radial and smaller-diameter tires may increase the potential for brake failure on downgrades. This report gives State transportation officials an overview of the Grade Severity Rating System, a program to reduce runaway truck accidents through the use of weight-specific-speed signs (WSS). The report contains adequate information for State transportation officials to decide whether they want to implement GSRS-WSS and also tells potential users where to get the additional information needed for actual implementation
Forum on Weathering Steel for Highway Structures : summary report by Forum on Weathering Steel for Highway Structures( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
On July 12-13, 1988 the Office of Research, Development and Technology of the Federal Highway Administration hosted a forum on Weathering Steel for Highway Structures. This conference took place at the Ramada Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia. The major objectives of this forum were to examine the state of the art in weathering steel use and maintenance, to develop rules for its use in new construction, and for maintenance of existing structures. The forum brought together 131 participants representing Federal and State governments and industry. The forum was organized into four main sessions, including a panel discussion and several individual presentations. The report summarizes the forum

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has begun a number of initiatives to improve signing on the Nation's roadways. These include workshops to obtain input from experts across the country, a review of each State's highway sign replacement and refurbishing program, and a training course. This report documents the proceedings of the workshops, one held in the Western United States and one in the Eastern United States. The workshops opened with a plenary session on Issues, Needs, and the FHWA Research Program, followed by a plenary session on Development of Minimum Requirements. The program continued with a panel discussion on Performance Standard Criteria, followed by a plenary session on Materials Selection. Breakout sessions on freeway signing, non-freeway signing, and motorist services and tourist-oriented signing completed the first day of the workshops. The second day opened with reports of the breakout sessions and continued with a plenary session on Field Assessment Techniques. A plenary session on Maintenance Procedures and Programs followed. The second day ended with breakout sessions on sign replacement methods, using contracting versus in-house and prison industries, and traffic control during sign replacement. The third day opened with reports on the previous day's breakout sessions, followed by a plenary session on Improved Inventory Techniques. The workshops closed with a Look to the Future plenary session. This report details the remarks made by the panelists and the comments and concerns of the participants on each of these issues
