Bicycle Safety Analysis: Crowdsourcing Bicycle Travel Data to Estimate Risk Exposure and Create Safety Performance Functions
Around 700 bicycle fatalities happen every year, and the number has steadily increased since 2009. At the same time Seattle, Wash., and Portland, Ore., are promoting cycling as a healthy transportation mode, so bicycle safety has become a more urgent concern for the Pacific Northwest area. The Highway Safety Manual provides ...

Geospatial Analysis of Bicycle Network "Level of Traffic Stress", Bicycle Mode Choice Behavior, and Bicycle Crashes for Risk Factor Identifcation
Small and medium-sized cities need publicly acceptable criteria for bicycle infrastructure improvements. This report explores the effectiveness of one proposed system of bicycle infrastructure criteria using data from a state-of-the-art travel survey, the Oregon Household Activity Survey (OHAS), and census journey-to-work ...
Freeway Traffic Safety And Efficiency Enhancement Through Adaptive Roadway Lighting And Control Enabled By Connected Infrastructure Networks
Visibility of the roadway and roadside objects often decreases as light (from natural and artificial sources) diminishes under a certain level. Roadway lighting, when used appropriately for the given context and conditions, can be an effective means for increasing visibility; however, inappropriate lighting can lead to issues ...
EXPLORING WEATHER-RELATED CONNECTED VEHICLE APPLICATIONS FOR IMPROVED WINTER TRAVEL IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
The objectives of this project were to investigate how connected vehicle (CV) data could be integrated with existing infrastructure data, and how the integrated data could be utilized to improve decision-making for highway operations and to enhance traveler information during inclement winter weather events. Because of some ...
