    • Implementation of GPS controlled highway construction equipment - phase II 

      Vonderohe, Alan (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2008-01)
      During 2006, WisDOT and the Construction Materials and Support Center at UW-Madison worked together to develop a specification and QC/QA procedures for GPS machine guidance on highway construction grading operations. These ...
    • Implementation of GPS controlled highway construction equipment - phase III 

      Vonderohe, Alan (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2009-02)
      Beginning in 2006, WisDOT and the Construction Material and Support Center (CMSC) at UW-Madison worked together to develop the specifications and the QA/QC procedures for GPS machine guidance on highway grading projects. ...
    • Low cost strategies to increase truck parking in Wisconsin 

      Ogard, Libby; Wang, Bruce; Srivastava, Praveen; Adams, Teresa M. (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2009-09)
      This report documents a study of truck parking issues along the major state highways in Wisconsin. The effort builds upon another project at the National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education (CFIRE) ...
    • Operational resiliency of Beloit-Hudson interstate highway corridor 

      Adams, Teresa M.; Bier, Vicki; Bekkem, Kaushik (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2010-05)
      This research identified the top 10 high-risk (low operational resilience) segments along the I-90/94 Interstate Highway Corridor from Hudson to Beloit, Wisconsin. Resiliency in this project is a function of the vulnerability, ...
    • Origin-destination table disaggregation using fratar biproportional least squares estimation 

      Horowitz, Alan J. (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2009-02)
      This paper describes a group of techniques for disaggregating origin-destination tables for travel forecasting that makes explicit use of observed traffic on a network. Five models within the group are presented, each of ...
    • Policy issues in cruise line operations on the Great Lakes 

      Stewart, Richard (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2011-10)
      The worldwide cruise industry has seen remarkable growth since the 1970s. Cruising on the Great Lakes, however, has been somewhat sporadic and is far from reaching full market potential. The Great Lakes is a cruise region ...
    • Reconstruction of railroads and highways with in-situ reclamation materials 

      Edil, Tuncer; Tinjum, James; Ebrahimi, Ali (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2011-03)
      The resilient modulus and plastic deformation of recycled roadway materials with and without fly ash stabilization were characterized using a large-scale model experiment (LSME). Stabilization of recycled pavement materials ...
    • Statistical analysis of heavy truck loads using Wisconsin weigh-in-motion data 

      Zhao, Jian; Tabatabai, Habib; Lee, Chin-Wei (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2009-09)
      This study involved statistical evaluation of heavy truck loads that were recorded in 2007 using Weigh-In-Motion stations located throughout the State of Wisconsin. The heaviest 5% of all trucks in each class and axle ...
    • Understanding freight-built environment interrelationships 

      Miodonski, Dan; Sherburn, Sarah; Rashidi, Laya; Dirks, Lise; Sriraj, P.S.; Thakuriah, Piyushimita (Vonu); Kawamura, Kazuya (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2011-08)
      This research will carry out the in-depth examination of, using both quantative and qualative techniques, the effects of land use on freight transportation and vice-versa to: expand the understainding of the full impacts ...
    • Wisconsin truck size and weight study 

      Wittwer, Ernie F.; Bittner, Jason; Adams, Teresa M. (National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education, 2009-06)
      The Wisconsin 2007 Assembly Bill 238 requires the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to conduct a comprehensive study to review the system of motor vehicle weight limits on Wisconsin's highways and bridges. Laws regarding ...
