Session 1, Room D: New Shared Mobility: Electric Scooters, Electric Assist Bicycles, and What’s Next

Nearly ten years after the docked bike share revolution began in North America, dockless bike share launched in 2017 as a new innovative business model for funding and operations. Then, in 2018, dockless e-scooter share rolled out. These shared mobility systems are part of a larger shift toward expanding options for first and last mile access to transit and on-demand transportation, and fueling the need for more dedicated on-street facilities for bikes and scooters. The rate of adoption has been remarkable – in just one year Bird and Lime reported 36 million scooter and bicycle trips. Such unprecedented growth has presented cities and transit agencies with new work to address permitting, design, equity, curb management, and more. Learn more from a variety of perspectives: companies, planners, municipal, MassDOT and MBTA.

Session 1, Room Junior Ballroom: Kelley Square Reimagined

Kelley Square is a complex intersection of heavily traveled streets in Worcester, which has been characterized by the public as "unique", "special" and "weird". Between 2013 and 2016, Kelley Square represented the single location with the highest number of crashes in Massachusetts, and there is currently little in the way of multimodal accommodations for users wishing to travel through the area. MassDOT is currently advancing a project to improve safety and operations at this location. This session will detail the robust/innovative public engagement and design development process that has led to identification of a first of its kind for Massachusetts – the Hybrid Roundabout (aka "peanut") Preferred Alternative. This alternative will provide clearer definition and delineation of traffic movements, calm vehicular traffic, enhance accommodation for non-vehicular users and enhance neighborhood connectivity and access/egress to surrounding commercial and business interests. The session will also highlight the innovative tools such as 3-D visualization and operational simulation modeling used by the design team to achieve consensus on the identification and selection of the Preferred Alternative.

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2, Room C: Accelerated Bridge Construction Techniques

Including two project presentations, the first will highlight the design process used for the plan development of Bridge 2931 in Preston, Connecticut. This structure was one of the first installations in the state that was designed to rely on Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) shear keys, instead of transverse post tensioning cables for its continuity between beam elements. The presentation will discuss the advantages of this system over conventional construction, and show what sorts of geometries lend themselves well to using UHPC shear keys instead of post-tensioning cables. The second presentation will feature the Darlington Upgrade project, a $620 million project to improve an important transit corridor in Adelaide, Australia. Jacobs was responsible for the analysis and design of a continuous, three-span, curved steel tub-girder bridge, carrying both a multi-use path and vehicular traffic over a major expressway. The project was innovative in its use of double composite concrete construction. To minimize expressway closures, the design-build team constructed the bridge at a nearby offsite location and moved it into place using self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs). This presentation will focus on the considerable design effort, planning, and analysis for the SPMT move, as well as the lessons learned.

Session 2, Room D: Flying Colors: How Teamwork & Technology Drove the Success of Hingham’s Route 3A Road Diet Pilot Program

When engineers and planners proposed narrowing Route 3A east of the rotary in Hingham, many people were skeptical. How could fewer lanes help alleviate safety concerns while maintaining traffic capacity, especially during the peak summer days on the primary route to and from Nantasket Beach in Hull? To test the design, MassDOT and the Town of Hingham, working with engineers from Design Consultants, Inc. and other firms, implemented a pilot program that used delineators to emulate future conditions. The team then employed multiple traffic tracking technologies, including Bluetooth, video and radar, to successfully demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed road diet. In this session, representatives from MassDOT, the Town of Hingham, and Design Consultants, Inc., will detail the challenges they encountered and the path the team traveled to reach consensus on a workable, affordable and effective solution.

Session 3, Room B: From Ground to Cloud: The Future of LIMMS

For decades, MassDOT has relied on an antiquated system of hand-written test report forms, redundant data entry, and numerous decentralized databases to perform its daily functions related to material testing. This inefficient method results in enormous paper consumption, misfiling of documentation, delayed contract certification, sample misidentification, and lack of test data analytics. To resolve these inefficiencies, MassDOT is employing a Laboratory Information Materials Management System (LIMMS) to oversee, analyze and track materials electronically. This presentation will illustrate the implementation strategy for LIMMS including how materials testing equipment will be linked to the software for seamless data collection and the improvement of turnaround time related to material processing, testing, analysis and final acceptance.

The 120-year-old North Washington Street Bridge over the Boston Inner Harbor needed to be replaced. The challenge was to create a Complete Street on a Gateway Bridge. The 100’ wide x 1087’ long structure carries 42,000 vehicles per day, heavy pedestrian traffic and numerous utilities from Boston’s North End and West End areas to Charlestown. The existing bridge was eligible for National Register of Historic Places listing, and in conformance with the National Historic Preservation Act, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), MassDOT Highway Division and the City of Boston. The agreement stipulated that the proposed replacement structure be a Gateway bridge, with architectural design elements incorporating the new structure into its surroundings, distinguishing the crossing as a unique place in itself, and include architectural design of structures, lighting, overlooks, separated bicycle lanes and other elements, to encourage use by people of all ages and interests. The design team, included the Boston Public Works Department, MassDOT, Alfred Benesch & Company, and Rosales + Partners, who developed a highly collaborative process, soliciting stakeholder feedback, while working within MOA constraints. Presenters will discuss this process and project results.

Session 5, Mobility Track, Room A: Employment Transportation

In 2016, 85% of all U.S. workers drove to their workplace. In other words, 128 million people drove a car, a van or a truck – mostly alone – contributing to road congestion, pollution, and greenhouse gas emission. The Federal Highway Administration, through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ), has funded transportation demand management (TDM) activities nationwide since 1990.

Delivered regionally by 15 Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) east of I-495 and by MassRIDES for the rest of the Commonwealth, TDM activities focus on educating employers and employees about public transit and other healthy mobility options, tax credits, and provide incentives to counterbalance single occupancy vehicle use. On July 1, 2019, the way MassDOT distributes CMAQ funding will change. Please attend this session to learn about incentives and funding changes, and how the CrossTown Connect TMA, Middlesex 3 TMA, and the 495/MetroWest Partnership are already laying the groundwork for innovative employment transportation services.

Session 5, Room C: Advancements in Curb Management and Bus Rapid Transit in Massachusetts

The compact downtowns of Massachusetts are attractive to infill development and walkable, transit-oriented lifestyles, but a lack of street parking has driven many communities to restrict new development through impractical parking requirements and the fear of burdensome traffic. Learn how this paradigm is being flipped on its head by treating curb spaces not as parking but as high-capacity terminals for accessing downtown, thanks to new mobility technologies. With smart curb management, development is increasing the person-carrying capacity of front-door parking over thirty times, by integrating ridesharing, micro-transit, e-scooters, shared bikes, and shared autonomous vehicles directly into their access profile. In addition to these new technologies, 2018 was a momentous year for bus riders in greater Boston, as municipalities around the region took bold steps to pilot elements of BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) in collaboration with the MBTA. Focusing on the Massachusetts Avenue pilot project in Arlington, this session will walk participants through the process of putting BRT elements along a critical and congested corridor, including development coordination with a multiagency working group, public outreach efforts, use of innovative BRT elements, design constraints, alternatives development, and selection of a preferred alternative.

Session 5, Room D: 2-D Hydraulic Analysis of the Tower Road Bridge

The Tower Road Bridge, programmed for complete replacement by MassDOT in FY 2022, spans the Chickley River approximately 100’ upstream of the confluence of the Chickley and Deerfield Rivers in Charlemont, Massachusetts. This confluence, coupled with the presence of an existing 2-span railroad bridge just 50’ downstream of the Tower Road Bridge, creates a hydraulically-complex bridge replacement project well-suited to be one of MassDOT’s first applications of two-dimensional (2-D) hydraulic analysis. The presentation will provide an overview of the unique hydraulic features of this crossing, explain the advantages offered by the use of 2-D modeling on this project, discuss model development, summarize hydraulic and sediment transport/scour analysis results, and wrap-up with lessons learned.

Session 5, Room E: Construction Project Sequencing, the Customer Wins!

The MassDOT Highway Division and the MBTA have been working to develop a more coordinated approach for the 2019 construction season and beyond. The goal is to have ongoing coordination efforts to maximize regional traffic mobility in the face of multiple highway, transit, municipal and private development projects that are reducing vehicular lane capacity and creating train and bus diversions. In 2019, a combined 125 projects will have impacts to the Greater Boston road and rail network. Working collaboratively, the MassDOT Highway Division and the MBTA will strategize future project sequencing to mitigate the overall impacts to the customer and ensure that construction activity on one road or transit facility will not place a severe burden on other roads and transit facilities.

Session 5, Room Junior Ballroom: Drones Part 2 - Developing & Deploying Advanced UAS Applications: The Case for Collaboration Among Government, Industry and Academia

In the first presentation, the MassDOT Aeronautics Division will discuss how the big data challenges are being addressed through an effort known as the Drone Data Analytics and Cybersecurity Program. The program includes managing the voluminous amount of collected data (predominantly imagery and video). The MassDOT Aeronautics Drone Program team recognizes the need for a solution to support, 1) the management of UAS operations, 2) secure storage and analysis of the UAS sensor data, and 3) the secure dissemination of end products to MassDOT users and decision makers.

The second presentation will discuss a collaborative UMass Lowell-MassDOT study on the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in surface transportation applications, including highway traffic accident reconstruction, incident situational awareness, and post-disaster transportation system damage assessment. The project aims to identify the optimal locations for deploying UAS to promptly respond to highway incidents and natural disasters, taking into account all important factors that can impact the optimality of UAS locations. The researchers have created a generic analysis procedure that can be applied to evaluate potential UAS location plans.

The third presentation focuses on the integrated use of data from UAS and from laser scanning to create immersive 3D and Virtual Reality (VR) models of public infrastructure, which can help with facility inspection and monitoring. In this presentation, aerial and laser scanned data from the Waterbury Bus Maintenance and Storage Facility in Watertown, Connecticut will be utilized to generate VR-based immersive visualizations. The presentation will include the methodology and protocols involved in the generation of VR models, the visualization itself using VR equipment, as well as its potential usage for stakeholders in decision-making and planning.

Session 6, Room B: Use of Adaptive Traffic Control Signals in Massachusetts

Three presentations will highlight the development, installation, and implementation of adaptive traffic signal systems to increase efficiency and improve the operation of existing roadways. The first presentation discusses a project that has installed an adaptive traffic signal system in Burlington, Massachusetts, at 27 signalized intersections along Burlington Mall Road, Cambridge Street, and the Middlesex Turnpike. The upgraded system provides enhanced capabilities to adapt to seasonal increases in traffic flow accessing the Burlington Mall, adjust timings to accommodate traffic volume surges due to events on I-95 nearby, and to minimize disruptions to normal signal operation resulting from emergency vehicle passage as they service Lahey Clinic and the two fire stations located within the project area. A live demonstration of the traffic management software will also be shown. The second presentation highlights an innovative public-private partnership between the City of Quincy and Ocean State Signal to bring the City’s traffic signal technology up to a modern standard and implement adaptive traffic signal system technology at more than 20 intersections along key corridors. The final presentation will focus on an innovative adaptive control method called Self-Organizing Traffic Signals. This method retains the essential features of fully actuated control, supplemented by new switching rules that organically lead to coordination and can reduce traffic delays and may offer significant decreases in delay for transit vehicles.

Session 6, Room C: Strength Evaluation of Corroded Beam Ends

The state of Massachusetts maintained 482 structurally deficient bridges in 2017 (FHWA 2017). Corrosion of steel girder ends is a prevalent problem, due to chemical substances which are employed seasonally to winterize the road. These substances, due to leaking bridge joints, result in section loss at beam ends, significantly reducing the bearing capacity of the bridges. Extensive thickness reduction can potentially result in load posting recommendations. This study investigates the effect of beam end corrosion on the capacity of steel girder bridges, and aims to develop a new procedure to accurately evaluate their remaining strength. The first part of this research is initiated by collecting data from MassDOT inspection reports. The most common shapes and locations of corrosion topologies are identified and quantified, making use of inspection reports across the state of Massachusetts. Second, loading tests are performed on six full-scale beams with natural corrosion obtained from bridges undergoing deconstruction. The effects of initial deformation, web and flange holes are investigated. The ultimate strength and post buckling behavior of the system are presented. Numerical models are developed and calibrated using the experimental data. Finally, new procedures, which could be incorporated in the Massachusetts Bridge Manual, may also be useful for DOT engineers nationwide.

Session 6, Room D: South Massachusetts Avenue Corridor Safety Improvements

The City of Cambridge undertook the South Massachusetts Avenue Corridor Safety Improvements project in 2017, with the goal of improving overall safety for users and supporting sustainable transportation through “quick-build” methods. The City and design team evaluated existing conditions and worked to develop low-cost and highly-effective design solutions to increase safety and support walking, bicycling, and transit along one of Cambridge’s busiest corridors. With input from the community and the stakeholders, the team created a low-cost design involving multiple quick-build design elements that offered flexible implementation as well as the possibility for future modifications. The design incorporated restriping pavement markings, signal re-phasing with protected/separate turning movements, additional signage, installation of flexible delineators, separated bicycle lanes, an additional crosswalk, accessible parking spaces and on-street parking, and the City’s second bus priority lane. Through these modifications, the City produced not only an affordable solution, but one that improves the safety and comfort of sustainable transportation. The project was implemented in late fall 2018.

Session 7, Mobility Track, Room A: Transportation as a Social Determinant of Health

Transportation is one of the “social determinants of health:” the social, economic, and environmental factors that affect health. Learn about examples of partnerships between public health and transportation that are underway in Massachusetts to reduce barriers to healthcare. First, hear from two Community Health Network Area (CHNA) coalitions that have identified transportation as a priority. The CHNAs from the Blue Hills and North Central regions will each discuss why they see transportation as a health issue and how they are addressing it through multi-sector collaboration. Then, learn about an innovative effort from rural Central Mass to help physicians understand the role of transportation in healthcare – by incorporating transportation experiences into the medical school curriculum.

Session 7, Room B: Using Sketch-Level Modeling Tools for Rail Vision

By the end of 2019, the MassDOT/MBTA Rail Vision will describe a commuter rail system that more effectively serves the future Boston Region. Planning for an uncertain future over a vast established network of commuter rail lines, spanning 388 route miles and almost 150 stations, requires creative thinking, regarding what kind of service is explored and how performance is measured. Rail Vision is conducting this analysis through two tiers– one using sketch tools and a second tier using traditional models (CTPS Travel Demand Model and Rail Traffic Controller). This presentation will focus on what has been learned from the first tier, where sketch-level modeling tools were applied to quickly and easily model performance of different service concepts, to understand how they affect key metrics, including ridership and operational feasibility, at a high-level. These tools – ATTUne for rail operations, the Regional Dynamic Model for ridership, and an Operating Costs model – informed decisions about which types of concepts work best for this region, helping narrow the options from over 65 service concepts to 7 alternatives in a short timeframe.

Session 7, Room C: Redefining How We Think about Infrastructure: Improving Mobility and the Public Realm

While roadway viaducts, bridges, and overpasses are commonly found in cities, at times even occupying large areas, the spaces below them often create undesirable public realm experience and impacts on pedestrian and bicycle networks. Some past attempts at creating public realm improvements under viaducts have suffered, due to a lack of design and planning integration with basic maintenance and repair requirements for the viaduct structure above. This presentation will focus on design innovations to the spaces under roadway viaducts developed through two projects, one that was recently completed, and another in the preliminary design phase: MassDOT's Underground at Ink Block, and the community-led concept design process for Charlesgate park under the Bowker Overpass, both in Boston. These projects show, that when included early in the integrative design process, these types of spaces can become mobility and public space assets, and potentially even facilitate maintenance and repair for the viaduct structures. Both projects also incorporate green storm water infrastructure where possible, improving water quality while also creating a more aesthetically pleasing environment. The presentation will outline observations and lessons learned, in terms of how the design team considered bridge maintenance and repair from the outset, green storm water management opportunities, and partnerships with local private actors and community groups to ensure viable and sustainable activation and maintenance of the under-viaduct spaces.

Session 7, Room D: An Ongoing Study in Municipal Transportation Best Practices

Every town in the Greater Boston Metro area struggles with traffic. Traffic congestion affects quality of life, has economic impacts in lost productivity, and contributes to climate change. On a local level, traffic congestion is often used as a basis for opposition to new development. A 2018 study by Einstein, Palmer, and Glick of Boston University, found that the most cited reason for opposition to new development is traffic. As much as the problem will show up as a municipal concern, most towns lack the means, expertise, and influence to deal with this regional scale problem, and the issue is often passed on as one to move up the chain (i.e. to the state or federal level). Despite the ostensible size mismatch there are significant opportunities for towns to help address both the local and regional problem. The Town of Weston has been collaborating with other towns, regional/state/federal agencies, and other transportation experts and providers on a practical set of solutions, and will share its initial findings on Transportation Best Practices where a municipality (Weston) can mitigate traffic issues and help improve transportation locally and regionally.

The first presentation will focus on the accessibility of the MBTA system and the MBTA’s Plan for Accessible Transportation Infrastructure (PATI), a part of its long-range strategy to achieve a fully accessible system. To support that goal, the MBTA collected accessibility data at 7,690 bus stops and 177 rail stations throughout its service area. The presentation will discuss the planning and design process that went into this substantial data collection undertaking, the data scoring, and the establishing of priorities for future improvements. The presenters will also share lessons learned about survey and scoring design, personnel selection and training, and quality control. The second presentation will highlight an ongoing MassDOT project examining the use of LiDAR as a tool to support efficient inventory updates and condition assessments of pedestrian infrastructure under MassDOT’s jurisdiction. Focusing on the State Route 9 corridor, the immediate scope of this study is to collect and process data with a mobile-LiDAR system, to verify and update the existing MassDOT’s sidewalk inventory data, and to incorporate physical condition information into the inventory geodatabase. It is anticipated that the outcome will provide MassDOT’s Highway Division with accurate information from which to prioritize sidewalk infrastructure maintenance and construction programs.
