Session 1, Mobility Track, Room A: Walkability for People of All Ages and Abilities

Walking is a component of most trips – and an important travel mode in and of itself. Join representatives of WalkBoston, the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, and the Veterans’ Administration for a workshop on the elements of a walkable community. Walkable communities promote health, access, community engagement, independence, and quality-of-life for older adults and individuals with disabilities. And when communities meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities, all residents benefit.

Using examples from projects underway in communities around Massachusetts – including urban, suburban, and rural contexts – presenters will highlight ways to improve the built environment, as well as policy changes that can improve walking safety, access, and comfort for older adults and people with disabilities.

Presenters: Adi Nochur, WalkBoston
Meg Robertson, Mass Commission for the Blind
Amber Vaillancourt, Department of Veterans Affairs

Facilitator: Rachel Fichtenbaum, MassMobility

9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Concurrent Session 1

Session 1, Room B: Techniques to Fingerprint Construction Materials

New technologies such as X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) offer a non-destructive analytical technique to determine and verify material composition providing MassDOT with a level of confidence related to product quality and long-term performance in less time. Using these technologies on select construction materials, MassDOT will be able to compare the material in the field to what is on file from the initial approval process. The ability to quickly confirm that materials used on-site meet contract specifications minimizes the risk for noncompliance. This presentation will illustrate the various materials that are being tested in the lab using these innovative technologies and the processes that have been developed.

Presenters: Mark Brum, Maggie McDonald, MassDOT - Research & Materials

Facilitator: John Grieco, MassDOT - Research & Materials

9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Concurrent Session 1

Session 1, Room C: MassDOT Stream Crossing Handbook

The MassDOT Highway Division will introduce its newly updated Stream Crossing Handbook, which revises and improves the 2010 handbook, Design of Bridges and Culverts for Wildlife Passage at Freshwater Streams. The handbook updates information on current federal and state regulations and addresses evolving MassDOT practices for stream crossing design and installation. It also introduces new reference materials for stream crossing design to accommodate wildlife passage, to consider climate change, and provides guidance for municipal personnel on MassDOT standards and review process. New content has been developed to help municipalities develop designs for local projects, including a summary of the MassDOT review process under MGL Chapter 85-Section 35, with links to MassDOT’s current submittal requirements. In addition, the handbook now includes illustrative designs of selected prototypical culvert and small bridge structures, with links to CAD drawing files, to help in the selection and design of structures that meet MassDOT standards and regulatory requirements for wildlife passage.

Concurrent Session 1

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 bikeshare 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. The rate of adoption has been remarkable – in one year Bird reported 10 million scooter trips and Lime 26 million bicycle and scooter trips. Such unprecedented growth has presented cities and transit agencies with new work to address permitting, design, equity, curb management, and more. Scooter and bike share have the opportunity to more than double the catchment area for transit ridership and provide more access to every day destinations. Find out more from a variety of perspectives: companies, planners, municipal, MassDOT and MBTA.

Presenters: Heather Hamilton, Select Board Member for the Town of Brookline, MA / BSC Group, Inc.
Holly Parker, Less Road Traveled

9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Concurrent Session 1

Session 1, Room E: Connected Vehicle Technology and the Road to a Connected Corridor

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, connected vehicle technology could reduce crashes by 80%. This session will explore the challenges that come with creating connected infrastructure and will provide information about what is currently being done in Massachusetts. This session will also provide an overview of the US Route 33 Smart Mobility Corridor project near Columbus, Ohio. This 35-mile corridor offers a unique opportunity to deploy and test smart vehicle technology in various settings, including urban, suburban, and rural; and roadway types, including local, arterial, and collector streets and multi-lane divided highway ramps. The project includes the installation of nearly 100 dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) devices, equipping between 600 and 1,200 vehicles with connected vehicle technology, developing V2I applications, and developing a smart network to manage the data flows and system.

Presenters: Lori Duguid, Michael Baker International
Corey O'Connor, MassDOT

Facilitator: Marco Pereira, MassDOT Director of ITS Programs

9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Concurrent Session 1

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.

Presenters: Don Cooke, VHB

Session 2, Mobility Track, Room A: Innovative Approaches to Mobility for Low-Income Individuals

Low-income individuals need transportation to access jobs and other community services. Hear from two efforts – a nonprofit in Worcester, and a transit authority in Southern Maine – that are using donations to purchase bus passes for people in need. We’ll also hear from a non-profit in Framingham that partners with its local transit authority to provide transportation – while helping clients prepare for careers in transportation.

Presenters: Brittany Raposa and Julie Marshall South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC)
Steve McClure, Tasks for Transit
Perian Carpenter, Shuttlebus-Zoom

Facilitator: Rachel Fichtenbaum, MassMobility

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2, Room B: Advancements in Cement Concrete Research and Testing

MassDOT is moving to update its cement concrete specifications for highway construction from a prescriptive-based method to performance-based requirements. During this transition, there is a necessity to expand on – and add to – the methods and technologies used for the evaluation of quality characteristics and mix properties of the concrete. MassDOT’s Research and Materials Section has been evaluating and employing new methodologies and technologies to assess concrete performance. This presentation will illustrate MassDOT’s implementation of several advancements in concrete testing including the use of “Surface Resistivity Meter”, “Maturity Meter”, “Freeze-Thaw” and “Ring Shrinkage.”

Presenters: Tim Willsmer and Jonathan Olivieri, MassDOT Research and Materials

Facilitator: John Grieco, MassDOT Director of Research and Materials

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2, Room C: Accelerated Bridge Construction Techniques

The first presentation 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 sort of 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 a multi-use path as well as vehicular traffic over a major expressway. The project was innovative in its use of a double composite concrete construction, and to minimize closures of the expressway, the design-build team constructed the bridge at an offsite location nearby and then moved the bridge into place using self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs). The presentation will focus on the considerable design effort, planning, and analysis for the SPMT move, and will also discuss lessons learned.

Presenters: Mathew Ingram, Jacobs
Dan Whittemore, Fuss & O'Neill

Facilitator: Olu Adeyemi, FHWA Structures Team Leader

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

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.

Presenters: David Giangrande, P.E., Design Consultants, Inc.
Corey O'Connor, MassDOT
Roger Fernandes, Town Engineer, Town of Hingham

Facilitator: Bill Travers, MassDOT District 5 Operations Engineer

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2, Room E: Share the Path – Working Together to Expand Our Network of Enjoyable, Useful, Safe, Secure, Comfortable and Inclusive Trails

Shared use paths are intuitively attractive for transportation and recreation, and they support many environmental, transportation and public health goals of the Commonwealth, but recurring challenges face communities and proponents who want to build them. MassDOT, DCR and EEA are working together as MassTrails to help move projects from ideas to implementation. This session will explore the benefits of shared use paths and discuss the MassTrails Shared Use Path Planning and Design Guide under development; we will also delve into how the MassTrails team and MassTrails Grant Program are improving key partnerships between the state, municipalities, path proponents and consultants – and what this highly-productive model of interagency cooperation may offer to the Commonwealth.

Presenters: Michael Trepanier, MassDOT
Samantha Roddy, VHB
Jeff Dietrich, Howard Stein Hudson
Camilla Dartnell, Kittelson & Associates, Inc.

Facilitator: Michael Trepanier, MassDOT Shared Use Path Program Manager

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Concurrent Session 2

Session 2, Room Junior Ballroom: Drones Part 1 - UAS Systems and Use-Cases: A New Paradigm for Transportation and Incident Response

The presentation will discuss the purpose, methods, and results of the UAS Research initiative conducted by MassDOT in collaboration with the UMass Transportation Center. The objectives of this research initiative are two-fold: 1. Develop practical procedures and protocols for MassDOT to integrate UAS technology into bridge and rail inspections presently carried out by traditional means, and 2. Conduct a pilot test of practical procedures and protocols designed for the integration of UAS applications into existing rail and bridge inspection programs. The presentation will include: a review of standard bridge and rail inspection procedures and protocols currently carried out by state DOTs; an assessment of the issues and challenges associated with UAS integration into bridge and rail inspections; and a discussion of how other state DOTs have benefitted from the integration of UAS technology into bridge and rail inspections. The results of the study demonstrated that UASs can serve as a useful tool in the majority of bridge and rail inspection procedures, with the exception of in-depth bridge inspections that require hands-on testing. It is expected that this presentation will be of interest to MassDOT officials in the Boston and district highway offices; local public works directors, highway superintendents, and traffic engineers; FHWA field personnel and other UAS stakeholders including consultants, university researchers, and industry partners. Note: *Phase I of this research initiative was completed in 2016 and Phase II commenced in May 2018. This presentation will mainly focus on the results of Phase II of this research initiative. The results of Phase I of this research initiative have been presented at the MassDOT 2018 Innovation and Technology Transfer Conference.

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.

Presenters: Richard Mulcahy and Ali Al Saadawi, MassDOT Research & Materials

Facilitator: John Grieco, MassDOT Director of Research and Materials

1:30 PM - 2:45 PM

Concurrent Session 3

Session 3, Room C: 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 us to think creatively both in terms of what kind of service we explore and how we measure performance. 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 we learned in the first tier, where we used sketch-level modeling tools 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 our region, helping to narrow from over 65 individual service concepts down to 7 service alternatives in a short timeframe.

Concurrent Session 3

Session 3, Room D: Utility Planning Eases Back Bay Bridge Project

During one weekend in 2018, MassDOT replaced the bridge carrying Mass. Ave over Comm. Ave. in Boston in just 73 hours – over 30 hours ahead of schedule. Working with MassDOT, Stantec developed an innovative approach using early utility relocation and accelerated bridge construction techniques to replace the bridge quickly while minimizing impacts to the traveling public and the local neighborhood. This session will present the innovations that were used on this project, including use of a separate contract for utility relocations, use of specially designed precast concrete elements to facilitate rapid construction in the restricted urban environment, and avoidance of impacts to surrounding park land through a design approach that established work zones in the existing right-of-way.

Presenters: Joseph Tierney, Stantec

Facilitator: Guy Rezendes, MassDOT State Utilities Engineer

1:30 PM - 2:45 PM

Concurrent Session 3

Session 3, Room E: Testing Automated Driving Systems on Public Ways

Representatives of the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) and MassDOT will provide a brief overview of connected and automated vehicles, and discuss how automated driving systems (i.e. self-driving cars) are being tested and researched in the two states in partnership with the system manufacturers, transit agencies, and municipalities. RIDOT will highlight the first initiative of its Transportation Innovation Partnership (TRIP), the Little Roady Autonomous Shuttle Pilot Project. Working with the startup May Mobility and local partners, the project is bringing electric autonomous shuttles to Providence, RI, focused on testing, transit integration, public education/engagement, policy-making and formal research. The project is enabling RI to test and research a range of factors to better understand the potential of new technology to improve mobility options for Rhode Islanders, and will help the State prepare for these changes and shape the future of our transportation system. MassDOT will share information about the Commonwealth's application process for permitting testing of automated driving systems in well-defined environmental conditions on approved municipal and state roads across the Commonwealth, and will outline opportunities for municipalities and road owners to participate and facilitate testing. Ryan Jacobs of nuTonomy, a developer of automated vehicles which is testing in the Boston area, will provide an overview of the company’s testing activities in Massachusetts and around the globe.

Session 4, Room E: In the Zone - Work Zone Safety

In April 2018, construction at the Sagamore Bridge was causing heavy traffic queues and delays. One area in particular that was experiencing significant queues was a merge point on the south side of the bridge. In need of a fast solution to this traffic congestion, MassDOT deployed a series of Portable Traffic Signals to act as temporary ramp meters in an effort to manage the high traffic volumes crossing the bridge. This presentation will discuss the unique circumstances of the project, as well as take an in-depth look at the Portable Traffic Signals (PTS) and associated technologies deployed on-site as a solution to ease the traffic congestion. Discussion will also include Portable Traffic Signals as an emergency-response tool for traffic management.

Session 4, Room Junior Ballroom: Creating a Complete Street on a Gateway Bridge

After it was determined that the 120-year-old North Washington Street Bridge over the Boston Inner Harbor needed to be replaced, the challenge to create a Complete Street on a Gateway Bridge began. The 100’ wide x 1087’ long structure carries 42,000 vehicles per day (including four major MBTA bus routes, school buses, tour buses, area shuttles and hazardous cargo vehicles), heavy pedestrian traffic (including Boston’s Freedom Trail) and numerous utilities from Boston’s North End and West End areas to Charlestown. As the existing bridge was eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, in conformance with the National Historic Preservation Act, a Memorandum of Agreement was issued and signed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), The State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), MassDOT – Highway Division and the City of Boston. This agreement stipulated that the proposed replacement structure be a Gateway bridge, with architectural design elements that would incorporate 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, consisting of the Boston Public Works Department, MassDOT, Alfred Benesch and Company, and Rosales + Partners worked through a highly collaborative process that solicited stakeholder feedback to find the solution to satisfy all of the needs and desires while working within all of the constraints. The result is a 57’-6” wide roadway consisting of four travel lanes and one bus rapid transit (BRT) lane, two7 ft. wide bicycle lanes separated from the roadway with 3’-9” wide traffic barrier/planters and two 10’-6” wide sidewalks that widen up to 19 ft. wide overlooks.

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 is changing. 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, the past year (2018) was a momentous one 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 you 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, MA. 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 Junior Ballroom: Drones Part 2 - Developing & Deploying Advanced UAS Applications: The Case for Collaboration Among Government, Industry and Academia

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have attracted considerable attention for their applications in surface transportation, including highway traffic accident reconstruction, incident situational awareness, and post-disaster transportation system damage assessment. This research analyzes the temporal and spatial distribution of historical highway incidents and natural disasters in Massachusetts, and aims to identify optimal locations for deploying UAS to promptly respond to highway incidents and natural disasters. The analysis also considers factors such as existing MassDOT CCTV camera locations and maintenance depots. This research recognizes the challenge to quantitatively consider all factors that may affect the optimality of UAS locations. Therefore, it provides a generic analysis procedure that can be applied to evaluate other potential UAS location plans.

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

Recent advancements in transportation technology are providing MassDOT with the capability to monitor and conditionally adjust signal control timings based on the processing of real-time traffic data. Adaptive system control is one of the tools available to MassDOT as it looks to leverage advanced technology to increase efficiency and improve operations of existing roadways. Recently, a project was completed, which installed an adaptive signal system in Burlington, MA. This project included 27 signalized intersections along Burlington Mall Road, Cambridge Street, and Middlesex Turnpike. The upgrade of the existing signal control system seeks to provide reasonable and predictable travel times, improve safety, provide enhanced capabilities to automatically account for seasonal increases in traffic flow, adjust timings to accommodate surges in traffic volume due to events on the adjacent interstate I-95 roadway, and minimize disruptions to normal signal operation resulting from emergency vehicle passageThis session will discuss the planning and design process, issues encountered during construction, the current state of the system, and lessons learned.

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 three full-scale specimens obtained from bridges undergoing deconstruction, with natural corrosion. 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: Massachusetts Avenue Corridor Safety Improvements

In 2016, the City of Cambridge adopted a Vision Zero policy, with a goal of eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries as well as a Complete Streets Policy, committing to enabling people of all ages and abilities to travel safely and comfortably by sustainable transportation modes. These built upon previous policies and plans, including the 1992 Vehicle Trip Reduction Ordinance and the 2015 Bicycle Plan. Aligned with these commitments and building from prior successful projects, the City 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. The team facilitated an extensive community outreach process that included user surveys and online WikiMaps to provide opportunities for community members to offer detailed feedback, assembled a Stakeholder Committee, and organized public meetings and open houses to teach all community about the project.. In conjunction with the community outreach, gathering technical data, and analyzing safety data reflective of this corridor, 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 maintained 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 along Massachusetts Avenue. The project was implemented in late fall 2018.

Session 6, Room E: Digitizing Municipal Transportation Workflows

MassDOT is adding the new Road Inventory Submission Application (RISA) to the suite of municipal tools available on geoDOT. With this addition, we hope to inspire creative new ways for agencies to develop and maintain data. RISA allows local governments to edit their road data online, greatly improving the efficiency and accuracy of local data while lending transparency to a historically opaque process. MassDOT staff have used the debut of the new software to engage with communities on how they use GIS today, and which of their processes could benefit from the centralized geospatial infrastructure afforded to users with geoDOT access. It is the goal of the agency to continue to better connect local staff with the resources they need and creating a collaborative environment for all levels of government in the transportation sector. Join us for a discussion and live demonstrations.

Session 7, Room C: Integrative Design: Redefining how we think about Infrastructure

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.

Session 8, Room E: Pedestrian Infrastructure Inventory Using Mobile LiDAR

Pedestrian infrastructure is one of the most vital transportation infrastructures and facilities for pedestrians (especially wheelchair users) who rely on quality sidewalks to facilitate safe and uninterrupted trips in their everyday lives. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is required to make informed investment decisions in transportation asset management, particularly as these decisions pertain to the timely identification and maintenance of inadequate sidewalks under MassDOT’s jurisdiction. With the recent advancement of remote sensing technologies, many mobile systems with high data acquisition frequency and measurement accuracy, such as mobile LiDAR, have become cost-friendly and commercially available. The information produced from these mobile LiDAR systems has the potential to address the challenges described above successfully and to deliver a comprehensive pedestrian infrastructure database accurately and efficiently. With the LiDAR-based embedded geolocation and geometric measurement information, the LiDAR-derived database will be seamlessly integrated with MassDOT’s existing (GIS)-based Road Inventory File (RIF). The study seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of employing mobile light detection and ranging (LiDAR) as a tool to support efficient inventory update and condition assessment of MassDOT’s pedestrian infrastructure. 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 management resources.
