Wesley E. Marshall and Carolyn A. McAndrews The results of this study point to land use policies, enforcement of social norms, and the design of pedestrian and transit environments as measures to maximize the contributions of commercial arterials to neighborhood livability.
Kimberly Vachal Understanding factors associated with increased likelihood for severe injury by driver group can encourage targeted interventions and countermeasures, which will then improve safety by reducing incidence of severe injury crashes involving trucks. Insight into truck crashes may allow drivers and businesses to identify areas for safety performance improvement.
Richard J. Schmidt The long-term objectives of this project were to develop and validate an instrumentation package for structural health monitoring of bridges subjected to overweight trucks and to develop plans for field deployment of the instrumentation on a pilot scale.

Raj Bridgelall, Ying Huang, Zhiming Zhang, and Denver D. Tolliver This research developed a sensing approach that extends the capability of in-pavement sensors beyond their ability to measure just loading and condition parameters. Specifically, the approach links the output of durable in-pavement strain sensors to common roughness indices.
