  62. Center Line Rumble Strips: Technical Advisory - F50 CLRS - November 01, 2011
    (Free Publication) - One of FHWA’s primary safety goals is to reduce the number and severity of roadway departure crashes. These consist of run-off-road (including cross median) crashes and cross center line crashes on undivided roads. Safety improvements proposed to address this goal include initiatives to keep vehicles on the roadway, to improve the likelihood of a safe recovery after a roadway departure, and to reduce the severity of those crashes that do occur. Center line rumble strips are one of the proven countermeasures that reduce the risks of cross center line crashes. This technical advisory is to disseminate updated information and guidelines for the design and installation of center line rumble strips on appropriate segments of paved roads. This information applies to a wide range of projects including new construction, reconstruction, resurfacing, and safety improvements. Highway professionals should consider the needs of all road users, existing roadway conditions, the scope of the project, and the surrounding environment when applying this information and guidance.

This technical summary provides an overview of the concrete overlay design process and identifies some of the more sensitive variables inherent with three different procedures: (1) the 1993 AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures (1993 AASHTO Guide), (2) the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), and (3) the,ACPA method for bonded concrete overlays on asphalt (BCOA) pavements. The first method, the 1993 AASHTO Guide, is the procedure most commonly ,used today for concrete overlay thickness design. The MEPDG is currently being implemented and evaluated by numerous state DOTs and is therefore included here. Finally, the ACPA BCOA method is presented to address the unique behavior of thinner BCOA, which is not captured by the first two methods.

  182. Guide For In-place Treatment Of Wood In Historic Covered And Modern Bridges - F50 GTWH - Published date unavailable
    (Free Publication) - Historic covered bridges and current timber bridges can be vulnerable to damage from biodeterioration or fire. This guide describes procedures for selecting and applying in-place treatments to prevent or arrest these forms of degradation. Vulnerable areas for biodeterioration in covered bridges include members contacting abutments, members near the ends of bridges subject to wetting from splashing and members below windows or other openings that allow entry of wind-blown precipitation. Pressure-treated timber bridge members can be vulnerable when untreated wood is exposed by field fabrication or by the development of drying checks. The objective of an in-place preservative treatment is to distribute preservative into areas of a structure that are vulnerable to moisture accumulation and/or not protected by the original pressure treatment. Types of field treatments range from finishes, to boron rods or pastes, to fumigants. A limitation of in-place treatments is that they cannot be forced deeply into the wood as is done in pressure-treatment processes. However, some can be applied into the center of large members via treatment holes. These preservatives may be available as liquids, rods or pastes. Bridge members can be treated with fire retardants to delay ignition, reduce heat release, and slow the spread of flames. In-place coating products are available to reduce surface flammability, but these coatings may need to be reapplied on a regular basis if exposed to weathering. For more integrated protection, fire retardant treatment of bridge members may be combined with other forms of protection such as lights, alarms, sprinklers and monitoring systems.

The advantages of PT bridges compared to bridges constructed using conventional reinforcement include greater span length, structural efficiency, reduced materials, and a more streamlined appearance. However, PT tendons can be susceptible to corrosion and ultimately failure if physical deficiencies (PDs) or chemical deficiencies (CDs) are present. Examples of PDs include separation, segregation, presence of soft material, and free water, while an example of a CD includes concentrations of chloride that exceed the allowable limit as specified by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and other specifications. The failure of a few tendons can compromise overall structural integrity.

  206. How To Be Fema Ready When Disaster Hits - FCD12 FRDH - 2011
    (Free Publication) - When an emergency occurs, public works professionals are held responsible for decisions made in situations over which they have no control. After the initial emergency response, the long process of asset recovery begins. There are many complications to the disaster reimbursement process. By implementing a thorough and effective long-term recovery plan you CAN control how your agency responds which may aid in rapid recovery of assets. This program will help you identify what you should have ready before disaster strikes and what you can expect in dealing with FEMA after the disaster. Learn from individuals who have faced natural disasters and were successful in resolving funding issues with FEMA. After viewing this program, participants will be better able to: 1. Recognize the need for recovery planning, as well as, response planning 2. Justify the value of a good asset management system that gives you quantifiable information to help identify the cost of bringing assets back into use 3. Anticipate the length of time and resources involved in the recovery process (years rather than days) In the last five years every state has experienced a disaster declaration so preparing for one should be a priority for every community. With declining financial resources this is a must see program!

  213. Improved Safety For Truck Drivers: Designing Safer Cabs Based On Driver Body Dimensions - F50 ISTD - 2011
    (Free Publication) - Truck manufacturers consider the body dimensions of truck drivers as they design truck cabs. However, until recently the most current body measurement data for truck drivers dated from the early 1980s. The composition of the trucker workforce has changed dramatically in the past 30 years, with an increase in the diversity of ethnic groups and the percentage of women working in this profession. In 2006, researchers at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) began a 4-year study to measure the body dimensions of the current truck driver workforce. With the active support of multiple trucking industry partners, researchers were able to recruit a diverse group of nearly 2,000 truck drivers nationwide and record their weight, height, and 33 other body measurements. These measurements showed significant differences between the current truck driver workforce and truck drivers 30 years ago. This information has been shared with the trucking industry, and is being widely used to update and improve truck cab design. Four truck manufacturers and 3 parts suppliers have utilized the data to create truck cabs with increased visibility, better fitting seat belts, and easier entry. The design software RAMSIS is being updated with the new measurement information for use in truck cab design across the industry. In addition, the Society of Automotive Engineers has affirmed its plan to update multiple truck cab standards based on the new data. Each of these changes provides an important contribution to the safety and health of the nation's truck driver workforce.

    (Free Publication) - These Fact Sheets are also available online: http://www.esf.edu/willow/lsf/default.htm. Blowing and drifting snow can increase the cost of highway maintenance and create hazardous driving conditions. These problems occur when snow is lifted off the ground by wind and transported across an open area towards a road. Local and state agencies in the United States spend over $2 billion annually on snow and ice control. Living snow fences can mitigate blowing snow problems, reduce the cost of highway maintenance and improve highway safety. Living snow fences are rows of trees or shrubs that perform the same function as wooden or plastic snow fences by disrupting wind patterns, creating turbulence around the fence and causing snow to be deposited in designated areas. This series of eight fact sheets introduce the benefits of living snow fences and address Site Assessments; Design; Species Selection; Site Preparation; Planting Techniques; Maintenance; and Coppicing.

  253. Making Intersections Safer: A Toolbox Of Engineering Countermeasures To Reduce Red-light Running - F50 MIS - 2003
    (Free Publication) - One of the primary causes of crashes at signalized intersections involves a vehicle entering an intersection when the red signal is displayed. This type of collision occurs frequently. According to preliminary estimates by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for 2001, the most recent year for which statistics are available, there were nearly 218,000 red-light running crashes at intersections. These crashes resulted in as many as 181,000 injuries and 880 fatalities, and an economic loss estimated at $14 billion per year. Clearly, red-light running, which is reported to be on the rise as with other aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, tailgating and not stopping or even slowing at stop-controlled intersections, has become a national safety problem. Red-light running is also a complex problem. There is no simple or single reason to explain why drivers run red lights. As will be presented in this report, redlight runners are more likely to be younger than 30-years old, have a record of moving violations, are driving without a valid license and/or have consumed alcohol. There is also evidence that drivers may be induced into running red lights because of improper signal design or operation. These elements make red-light running difficult to predict and a difficult problem to solve. This report is intended for several types of readers. Engineers trained in the design and operation of signalized intersections should already be cognizant of the engineering measures discussed. Still, they can benefit from being reminded of good engineering practice with the provision of a single information source focused on this topic. Law enforcement officials should become more sensitized to the various engineering features that affect red-light running and be supportive of their implementation prior to taking aggressive enforcement measures. Other officials who feel that aggressive enforcement measures, (including automated systems) should be implemented on a large scale basis will be made aware that engineering measures have the potential to reduce red-light running, which may address the resulting safety problem more adequately and equitably.

  267. Nail Gun Safety: A Guide For Construction Contractors - F40 NGG - 2011
    (Free Publication) - Nail guns are widely used on many construction jobs, especially in residential construction. While they boost productivity they may also cause tens of thousands of painful injuries each year. This publication is intended to provide a resource for residential home builders and construction contractors, subcontractors, and supervisors to prevent these kinds of injuries. The guidance was developed in response to a unanimous motion by industry, state, and labor stakeholders on OSHA’s Advisory Committee for Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) on the need to develop awareness and materials about nail gun risks. OSHA and NIOSH worked together to make sure the guidance reflects the most current information available. The guidance highlights what is known about nail gun injuries, including the parts of the body most often injured and the types of severe injuries that have been reported.

  415. To Pave Or Not To Pave: Making Informed Decisions On When To Upgrade A Gravel Road - F40 TPNP - October 01, 2006
    (Free Publication) - Paved roads provide improvement over gravel in ways that are hard to quantify with dollars, including improved winter surfaces, improved safety from improved signage and delineation, a safer surface with higher skid resistance, a smoother surface that increases user satisfaction and reduces vehicle maintenance costs, redistribution of traffic away from gravel roads, and an increased tax base on adjacent property. Two key questions must be answered when developing a gravel road maintenance plan: 1. What is the best way to maintain a gravel road? 2. When should the roadway be upgraded to a paved surface? These are not easy questions because many factors affect the answers. This technical brief discusses 2 projects and related materials available to help decide when to upgrade a gravel road - Economics of Upgrading an Aggregate Road and Local Road Surfacing Criteria.

  421. Traffic Signal Led Module Specification Workshop And Informational Report For Snow Conditions - F50 TSLSC - January 01, 2014
    (Free Publication) - The primary objective of this research was to identify significant environmental (i.e., weather) variables that may contribute to snow and ice buildup on LED traffic signal lenses. If a subset of variables can be identified that may predict the potential occurrence of snow and/or ice buildup on LED traffic signal lenses, then it may be possible for traffic engineers to take a more proactive approach to eliminating or minimizing the potential negative effects. One of the unintended consequences of the transition to LED traffic signals lenses/indications is the fact that LEDs do not produce heat to the traffic signal lens or face of the traffic signal display. Therefore, LEDs do not provide a ?melting? element to traffic signals in the northern climates that experience snow and ice conditions. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has worked with ITE in determining the issues related to the snow and ice conditions on LED traffic signal lenses. ITE and USDOT conducted a stakeholder workshop on December 14?15, 2010 that created a set of proceedings documenting the issues, findings, and potential next steps in addressing the snow and ice-covered LED traffic signal lens issue. One of the outcomes of the workshop was the initiation of a small research task to further explore the environmental conditions (i.e., weather) upon which the snow and ice problem occurs. This report summarizes the research effort completed to fulfill that outcome.

It provides insights into road manager choices and challenges and is useful supplementary reading to the accompanying Unpaved Road Dust Management, A Successful Practitioner’s Handbook by Jones et al. (2013). Roughly 80% of the survey respondents used chemical treatments for six or more years. Ninety eight percent (98%) of those indicated it was to control (fugitive road) dust, in part, to comply with federal regulations, for human and livestock health, in response to public complaints, or as a courtesy to the public. Other top reasons were to reduce maintenance costs and extend grader maintenance intervals. The most common treatment method was spray-on surface application with the top three chemical treatments being magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, and lignin sulfonate, respectively.

  441. Unpaved Road Dust Control And Stabilization Treatment Selection Guide - F50 URDCA - January 01, 2014
    (Free Publication) - There are millions of miles of unpaved roads around the world. unacceptable levels of dust, poor riding quality, impassibility in wet weather, and unsustainable maintenance and gravel replacement practices are experienced on much of this global network, and although it is acknowledged that these roads are fundamental to the economics of almost every country, many of the management practices followed leave much to be desired. This Guide introduces a new process for selecting an appropriate chemical treatment using ranked potential performance. The approach is based on the practitioner setting an objective for initiating a chemical treatment program and understanding the roads in terms of traffic, climate, geometry, and materials. Using information collected, the most appropriate chemical treatment categories for a given situation can be selected from a series of charts and ranked using a simple mathematical formula.
