CURRENT RESEARCH

Three papers outline new ways to look at interchange safety: A short article summarizing our recent work on Diverging Diamond Interchanges: CMF development and temporary traffic control plans.

How to select countermeasures to enhance work zone safety? We recently developed guidance as part of a FHWA Work Zone Safety Grant.

How successful is an evacuation? We are trying to answer this question for various stakeholders involved in a hurricane evacuation: citizens, emergency management agencies, DOTs. A multidisciplinary team of researchers from sociology, systems engineering and transportation modeling are collaborating on this effort.
