Concurrent Session 1

Session 1C: Bonded Anchor System Test Methods for Creep
The objective of this presentation is to comment on and provide background on the proposed standard, AASHTO TP-84 that was developed to assess the creep performance of post-installed bonded anchorage systems. Similar criteria has been proposed in ACI committee. The advantage of the percent mean static load versus time to failure plots is that a designer can use them to predict service life of anchors under sustained tensile load. Sample data is referenced from a research project at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (UMass) that evaluated different materials per this test method. Based on sample results, the test has the potential to overestimate the performance of a lower quality material, therefore additional acceptance criteria has been proposed. Defining acceptance criteria based on coefficient of variation of results, and specifying when outlying data can be neglected are areas that need further guidance. Due to the inherent unpredictability of extrapolating polymer data to 100 years based on test times less than four months it is the author’s opinion that conservative criteria is warranted. The use of other material testing are noted as useful as quality control measures to ensure consistency of field applied products and establishing that a material glass transition temperature is adequate for the application being considered. Implementation criteria has been proposed to MassDOT.
Presenter: Scott Civjan, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Facilitator: Mark Brum, Materials Quality Systems Engineer, MassDOT

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2 Junior Ballroom: Technological Advancements for Connected and Automated Vehicles
Vulnerable Transit User Connected Technologies
Connected vehicle and smart city infrastructure technologies offer significant potential to enhance shared roadway safety and mobility; however, vulnerable transportation users have traditionally been overlooked with respect to how they will be connected to these dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) networks. This presentation will discuss two concurrent USDOT FHWA funded efforts focused on the development of a solution to bring both motorcycles and bicycles onto these networks to both provide passive safety and mobility benefits, while also enabling active hazard detection and warning capabilities for these vulnerable users. This technology combines: (1) DSRC-based connected vehicle and infrastructure networking to continuously broadcast cyclist/rider state information to other connected entities in local proximity; (2) custom hazard detection algorithms that take advantage of these communications in addition to computer vision collision avoidance software; (3) intuitive and multimodal warning capabilities to alert cyclists/riders to detected hazards in a heads-up and eyes-on-the-road manner so as not to compound a hazardous situation; and (4) a custom hardware deployment designed for both motorcycles and bicycles that can be modularly deployed based on cost constraints and desired capabilities. Finally, in addition to an overview of this technology, we will present results from an initial and controlled pilot test to be conducted in the City of Las Vegas in early December that focuses on demonstration of capabilities in a connected environment.
Presenter: Michael Jenkins, Charles River Analytics
Vulnerable Transit User Connected Technologies Presentation

The Road to Connected and Automated Vehicles
Autonomous/Connected/Electric/Shared (ACES) technologies could offer unprecedented mobility and safety for transportation system users. They could also lead to sprawling development, higher driving costs, fewer transportation options, and over-reliance on technology. As these technologies now enter the realm of inevitability, we must shift our approach to planning for, designing, and managing our transportation network. This dynamic panel of speakers will discuss how to plan for uncertainty and will share success stories from around the country. The speakers will highlight how exploratory scenario planning can complement traditional travel demand models to help prepare for a range of possibilities regarding technology adoption, mode choice (including mobility-on-demand), land use patterns, and travel demand/efficiency. The presentation will offer visions for the future and visualizations of how technology could transform the built environment, with a focus on Complete Streets. From the bustling Boston Seaport, to sunny Arizona, to the snow-covered streets of Minnesota, the panelists will also showcase some of the recent deployment efforts across the country, including the lessons learned from these pilot projects. The discussion will highlight the importance of communications, outreach, data, security, and equity when designing and implementing ACES systems. Matthew Smith, P.E., is Michael Baker’s National Connected and Automated Vehicle Program Manager. He previously served as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Administrator for Michigan DOT. Chris Chop, AICP, is a transportation planner at Michael Baker International, specializing in Long Range Planning and Complete Streets.

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2A: Passive Fire Protection of the Ohio River Bridges
A fire design innovation of the concrete lining of the Ohio River Bridges East End Crossing Tunnel has been developed. As a result from a fire suppression and tunnel ventilation system, the project design Heat Release Rate (HRR) was able to be constrained from 300 MW to about 50 MW. With this reduced HRR, concrete lining without passive fire protection may be acceptable, if the tunnel concrete lining will not result in explosive spalling during the designed fire event. Concrete explosive spalling test was proposed to verify this assumption. Since no standard concrete fire explosive spalling testing procedure exists, a project specific testing procedure was developed and fire tests conducted. From fire test results, it is concluded that the proposed tunnel concrete lining, in conjunction with the proposed fire suppressing and ventilation system, will not experience explosive spalling and does not require a passive fire protection system.
Presenter: Nick Chen, Jacobs Engineering
Facilitator: Joe Rigney, Tunnel Engineer, MassDOT

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2C: Latest Developments in Pavement Research
Measuring or predicting mixture performance prior to placement has become essential for many state transportation agencies due to incorporation of more recycled materials into mixtures, utilization of binders formulated with various modifiers, and utilization of new and unproven technologies. Mixtures designed incorporating these elements in accordance with the current Superpave mixture design method have unknown performance as Superpave was never designed to compensate for them. Thus, agencies have interest in implementing the balanced mixture concept that requires testing for acceptable mixture performance during the design phase. The effect of production considerations on a balanced mixture design is not known. It is unknown if a mixture remains performance balanced during production due to factors like asphalt content, gradation and binder source variations. This study was undertaken to understand the influence of these production considerations on a balanced mixture design.
Presenter: Walaa Mogawer, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
Facilitator: Ed Naras, Pavement Management Engineer, MassDOT

Session 2D: MassDOT Flood Resiliency Planning for Rivers and Streams
Flood Resiliency and MassDOT Asset Management
The objective of this project is to use proxy variables, including specific stream power and percent bankfull width, to perform an initial flood resiliency screen for all MassDOT inland river/stream crossing structures. The project primarily includes the estimation of stream power and the size of MassDOT bridges and culverts relative to the bankfull channel width for the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts (20 major basins and approximately 28,000 miles of streams). GIS tools will be created and integrated into MassDOT's developing asset management system. These tools require limited data collection and can be readily used for a quick evaluation of bridges, culverts, and road segments. Flood resiliency planning will ultimately improve functionality and cost effectiveness of MassDOT's surface transportation investments while providing enhanced public safety, maintaining emergency responder routes, and minimizing impacts to the Massachusetts economy due to flooding and erosion.
Presenters: Samantha Roddy, Environmental Analyst, MassDOT
Roy Shiff, Milone & MacBroom


The MassDOT Rivers & Roads Training Program
MassDOT has embarked on a project to develop a Rivers and Roads training program to improve design and asset management and ultimately create a more resilient transportation network. Through the training program, staff involved in the development of transportation projects along rivers and streams will learn about the processes that result in storm damage, and how to mitigate future damage through innovative assessment and design practices. This talk will provide an overview of the training program and offer examples of some of the major teaching topics. Flood resiliency planning will ultimately improve functionality and cost effectiveness of MassDOT's surface transportation investments while providing enhanced public safety, maintaining emergency responder routes, and minimizing impacts to the Massachusetts economy due to flooding and erosion.

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2E: Accelerated Bridge Construction Techniques
NEXT Beam Bridge & Innovative Materials
The presentation will discuss Jacob’s and MassDOT’s experience on the project and the design and construction challenges that were met through the use of innovative construction materials and prefabricated bridge elements. To meet the AASHTO and MassDOT design requirements, the NEXT beam designs required a 10,000 psi mix design. This was the first use of the 10,000 mix design in Massachusetts. Additionally, the Hudson bridge project is one of two projects that used Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in Massachusetts. UHPC is a steel fiber-reinforced, portland cement-based, advanced composite material that delivers performance far exceeding conventional concrete. UHPC for Prefabricated Bridge Elements (PBES) is one of the innovations highlighted in FHWA’s Every Day Counts (EDC) Four Initiative. Discussion will include how piloted requirements for the NEBT’s, UHPC and concrete mixes were developed, evaluated and their final outcome. Through the use of innovative construction materials and prefabricated bridge elements, the full bridge closure lasted only 85 days and the bridge opened to traffic on September 29, 2017.
Presenter: David Massenzio and Darren Conboy, Jacobs Engineering Group
NEXT Beam Bridge & Innovative Materials Presentation

Applying ABC Techniques to Complex Bridge Projects
Recently, MassDOT completed a design-build project to replace the structurally deficient bridge superstructures carrying the Rt. 147 (Memorial Ave) Rotary over Rt. 5 in West Springfield. Due to high traffic volumes and need to reduce impacts to businesses and the travelling public, the project required the use of ABC techniques to replace each of the bridge superstructures within only single 79-hour roadway shutdowns. In this presentation, attendees will learn about: 1.) Optimization and layout of the proposed bridge superstructure framing, which enabled the replacement of the existing bridge seats while carrying live traffic. 2.) Approach to temporarily supporting the critical existing utilities, in-place, during the bridge superstructure replacement weekends. 3.) Design development of the complex PBUs, including considerations for detailing, fabrication, transport, and installation, as well as the effective use of rapid-set concrete closure pours. 4.) How to apply these techniques to help solve technical challenges associated with their own projects.

Session 3A: Asset Data Collection Methodologies
Asset Inventory Using Real-Time Geolocation
The MBTA and VHB used an innovative and time-saving approach to compile an asset inventory and condition assessment for the 38 miles of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) in Massachusetts. The NEC is an electrified railway line with high-frequency regional and local passenger service, and the high volume of trains limited available track time. VHB developed a reporting tool that outputs detailed information and photos for each asset inventoried, including a map identifying the asset’s location along the NEC and an aerial image to provide reference for future field identification. The team submitted a final report to the NEC Commission within four weeks of Notice to Proceed; this rapid turnaround was a direct result of using the state-of-the-art technology. Participants will learn how technology can be used to expedite obtaining geolocated field data and condition assessments for commuter rail systems in the field, which can be used for reporting and capital planning.
Presenter: Michael Gordon, VHB

Using ArcGIS Online and Through the Collector App
This session will provide an introduction and overview of the hardware and software currently in use on multiple MassDOT projects to gather and store field data in support of design, permitting and asset management efforts. Projects currently using this methodology include the MassDOT Impaired Waters and the Route 495/I-90 Interchange Design. Data gathered and stored using tablets and commercially available software include natural resource inventories, wetland jurisdictional delineation, and stormwater infrastructure location. Field gathered and stored data includes text and geolocated photographs. The system allows instantaneous access to data as it collected for use by technical staff working in office locations. The data is extractible for direct use in creating mapping. Conversely, conceptual design plans can be loaded on the tablet and through geolocation, field technicians can identify the precise location of proposed facilities in the field. Future potential for this methodology includes continued asset management including stormwater infrastructure inspection, bridge and roadway condition assessments, endangered species habitat location and performance of plantings and replicated wetlands.

Session 3B: Use of Modeling to Develop Safety Barriers for Bridges
Guidelines for Bridge Pier Protection
NCHRP Project 12-90 has recently developed new risk-based guidelines for determining if bridge pier components should be shielded from heavy-vehicle impacts with a barrier. These new guidelines take the particular traffic and site conditions into account to estimate the likelihood of a pier collision occurring with sufficient energy to cause a catastrophic bridge collapse. The guidelines allow the engineer to identify the most at-risk piers and target appropriate strengthening or shielding strategies to minimize the chance of bridge collapse.
Presenter: Malcolm Ray, Roadsafe LLC

Session 3C: Pavement Management Strategies for Municipalities
Pavement Management - Right Repair at Right Time
The planning process for managing a road network has become a year-long task. With treatments evolving on a yearly basis, you might be asking yourself “Am I getting the most out of the taxpayer dollars?” Selecting the right repair at the right time is the most important factor in successfully maintaining or repairing your roadway network. This presentation will focus on three keys to selecting the right repair at the right time: - Knowing what repair options are available - Understanding when to and when not to use these techniques - How to incorporate them into your pavement management program.
Presenter: Conrad Leger, BETA Group, Inc

Data Driven Pavement Solutions - A Field Toolbox
Pavement management is much more than just condition surveys and 5-year plans. A Data Driven Pavement Solution is the next step in allowing pavement service lives to be maximized and design lives exceeded. Continuous improvement relies heavily on incorporating identifiable efficiencies, learning from past experiences, and implementing new processes based on historical data. So why are we not capturing and utilizing the record data from each project we construct? AECOM is working with multiple clients to develop a mobile Pavement Engineer’s Toolbox that is fully customizable allowing project records to be efficiently reviewed, collected, transferred, and analyzed.

Session 4A: Latest Developments in Effective Work Zone Strategies
Cooperative Highway Work Zone Merge Control
Given the aging infrastructure and the anticipated growing number of highway work zones in the United States, it is important to investigate methods to improve work zone mobility and safety. Data suggests that inappropriate merge maneuvers are a major contributing factor to highway work zone crashes that often lead to severe congestion and delay. Although late merge and early merge have attracted much attention and have been tested in the field, both merge control methods have major limitations. This research proposes a New England Merge (NEM) for highway work zone control, which introduces a meter zone prior to the lane closure point to facilitate smooth and orderly merge maneuvers, helping to generate high-speed and high-density output flows.
Presenter: Yuanchang Xie, University of Massachusetts Lowell

Innovation to Minimize I-90 Work Zone Delays
Freeway work zones can cause significant disruptions to freeway travel times. This presentation will showcase how a new planning-level work zone analysis tool was used to quantify delays and travel time impacts of recent work zone activities on I-90, and how the results were used to minimize impacts to the traveling public.

MassDOT MHS Tunnels Coastal Flood Response Plan
MassDOT has been working towards implementing resilience measures for the Metropolitan Highway System (MHS) tunnels in Boston, following on the MassDOT-FHWA Pilot Project Report: Climate Change and Extreme Weather Vulnerability Assessments and Adaptation Options for the Central Artery. The Pilot Project Report found that MHS tunnels and associated infrastructure can sustain significant damage from a major coastal flood occurring in Boston. A major coastal flood can occur in Boston when the peak storm surge from a large coastal storm, such as a hurricane, tropical storm, or nor'easter, coincides with a high tide. The likelihood of a major coastal flood occurring in Boston is increasing as a result of sea level rise. MassDOT is developing the MHS Tunnel Facilities Coastal Flood Response Plan (FRP) to prepare for these growing threats.

Session 6 Junior Ballroom: Casey Arborway Project - Reshaping Mobility Through Inclusive Design
Conceived during an era when people were coerced into their car, the Casey Overpass was constructed in the early 1950s to carry vehicular traffic into the City of Boston and completely bifurcated the Jamaica Plain neighborhood. The Forest Hills area was once viewed as the heart of Jamaica Plain, but the viaduct bisected the community and created a dead zone around and under the bridge and the street network around the bridge was confusing to motorists and dangerous for bicyclists and pedestrians. A routine bridge inspection deemed the viaduct structurally deficient and MassDOT initiated an innovative planning study that included a public involvement process requiring participants to fully engage with the project team through workshops, meetings, and feedback requirements. A Working Advisory Group (WAG) was convened to work closely with MassDOT through difficult mobility and livability issues that explored traffic, design, and developed Measures of Evaluation (MOEs) to provide an objective basis for comparing alternatives to each other and to the existing conditions. These MOEs provided revelatory evaluations for the alternatives because they incorporated multimodal mobility measures as well as livability measures that targeted defined principles and quality of life goals. The panel of experts will present the opportunities and challenges uncovered by this innovative approach and how MassDOT can implement it in future projects.

It focuses on forging an inclusive intergovernmental and interdisciplinary institutional setting to discover and document the significant benefits of deploying commercially-available off the shelf (COTS) drone hardware and software in a real-world “LivingLab” situated on the urban-rural fringe of the Boston metropolitan region.
Presenter: Lawrence J Harman, GeoGraphics Laboratory, Science and Mathematics Center

Time to Leverage Drone Data
Well executed drone missions lead to high resolution imagery and video, orthomosaics, and three dimensional products. Drone maneuverability makes it ideal for inspections. The technology is here to stay and recent regulatory changes only further reinforce this notion. This much we know, but, now that we understand the principles and realize the baseline potential, the question shifts to how best to leverage this data to provide more solutions, improve more processes, and make better decisions. The key to any new technology is improving on how business is done today. to actually see parking usage. This process eliminates human error, aids presentation, and provides transparency about the data collection process.

Session 8A: Quantifying Adverse Effects of Transit Changes
Transit agencies that receive federal financial assistance are required to conduct service equity analyses of major transit service changes, but currently struggle to establish approaches that accurately represent the populations affected by these changes, and the magnitude of their impacts. This reality leaves transit agencies without a method to assess potential adverse effects with confidence, which may lead to false findings of disparity obstructing potential well founded transit service changes. Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) to the Boston Region MPO developed an improved method for conducting service equity analyses by assessing disparate impacts and disproportionate burdens of a transit service change using population data and a transit supply metric. The method offers improvement over current practice by: (a) identifying a more comprehensive set of the population impacted by a service change, extending beyond surveyed riders using the service in its existing configuration, or populations who reside within a certain geographic distance from the service; (b) quantifying adverse effects in relation to the degree of the transit service change; and (c) accounting for nearby alternative transit options that mitigate the overall impact of a service change.

Session 8B: Strategies to Eliminate Traffic Deaths and Enhance Safety
Massachusetts Crossing Guard Resources
The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program (MA SRTS), a program of MassDOT, strives to promote safety as the core element in all that our program offers. In order to encourage safe walking and biking practices, our reach goes beyond the students with whom we work. Because of this, the MA SRTS developed resources for crossing guard training after extensively surveying police and school transportation departments regarding current utilization of training programs across the state. While some state and municipal entities provide recommendations and trainings for crossing guard safety, there is no uniform practice to relay this safety information. MA SRTS consulted with the Massachusetts Department of Labor and the Massachusetts Highway Safety Division to create training materials for police departments, municipalities, as well as our over 800 partner schools. Crossing guard training materials are a vital component for keeping students safe. These materials illustrate some of the critical responsibilities and concerns for school crossing guards with the primary goal of creating a resource for statewide crossing guard training. MA SRTS plans to present a variety of crossing guard resources that we began implementing throughout the state. These resources are an available guide to state and municipal workers as supplemental pieces to their own training materials and can be fully adopted for those that may not have a strategic training model.

Vision Zero--Analytics to Eliminate Traffic Death
According to the World Health Organization, the road traffic death toll in 2015 was 1.25 million. That means that every 25 seconds, one person is killed due to a traffic accident. In the U.S., 35,092 people were killed due to car accidents in 2015. This rate is increasing. Vision Zero is an international initiative to eliminate serious injuries and fatalities caused by collisions among pedestrians and vehicles. Verizon developed a data-driven approach to reduce injury and death. We invented an integrated sensor system to detect and analyze the conflicts among pedestrians, vehicles, and cyclists. The analytical results can show the trends and impact of dangerous behaviors in intersections. Cities can use the data to drive changes and assign resources proactively even before accidents happen.

Session 8C: Role of Transportation Network Companies and Microtransit in Solving First/Last Mile Gaps
Changes in technology are creating major impacts on transit services. A new generation of highly flexible, private transportation options provided by Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Uber or Lyft have conditioned riders to expect a system of on-demand transportation at the push of a button in the past few years. These TNC services are reshaping how and when people use transit in different ways; some riders can now use ride hailing services to make “first and last mile” connections to transit, while others are forgoing transit and instead using Uber and Lyft for their entire trip. However, this new technology is also finding its way into mass transit services with transit agencies now offering flexible, on-demand public transit services (microtransit) using their own fleet and operators. This session offers a fresh look at what impacts – both positive and negative – this technology can bring to small, medium, and large public transit agencies, municipal providers, and the traveling public.
