RSG Helps Determine Economic Implications of Oregon’s Deteriorating Highway Conditions

Last week, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) issued a statewide news release titled “Updated research looks in-depth at how poor road conditions will impact Oregon's economy.” As the title suggests, the release explains that funding shortfalls for infrastructure will have significant negative impacts on the state economy and resident’s quality of life.

One of the reports that the release references, “Rough Roads Ahead 2,” relied on the Oregon Statewide Integrated Model (SWIM) to study an issue that many state DOTs are facing—declining revenue accompanied by increasing costs due to the need to maintain and/or replace deteriorating infrastructure. RSG’s Joel Freedman and Ben Stabler helped build the model that was used for the analysis, and—along with RSG’s Nagendra Dhakar—assisted Oregon DOT staff define alternatives to be tested in the model, analyzed model outputs, and interpreted results.

See Oregon's Rough Roads/Pavement Reports website for more information.

RSG Efforts Honored with Awards from ACEC NH Engineering Excellence

Two RSG-involved projects received recognition at the American Council of Engineering Companies of NH (ACEC NH) Engineering Excellence awards banquet last week.

RSG assisted AECOM by collecting and analyzing traffic and survey data for the “NH Statewide Rest Area and Welcome Center Study,” which received an honorable mention.

In addition, the RSG project “Your Guide to Promoting Walking and Bicycling Accommodations in New Hampshire” received a Silver award. The guide, completed in collaboration with the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) and its Bicycle & Pedestrian Transportation Advisory Committee (BPTAC), informs bicycle and pedestrian stakeholders on how to most effectively engage in the transportation project planning and design process. The final product marries complex technical content with reader-friendly design and language, serving as both an outreach and educational resource for the public.

RSG's Market Research App, rMove, Featured on NBC San Diego

RSG’s proprietary location-aware market research app, rMove, was featured on NBC San Diego last week. RSG is conducting a household travel survey for the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and, as the segment explains, is using rMove to allow for participation via smartphone. rMove is a platform that collects data on participants’ day-to-day movements and motivations to help organizations confidently plan for future transportation needs.

The study, which is taking place from August 2016 to March 2017, is projected to include data from 5,500 households. Compared to traditional survey methods, data collection via rMove will provide more accurate and robust data as well as more enjoyment and convenience for participants.

RSG Director Presents Travel Model Improvement Portal (TMIP) Webinar

RSG Director Joel Freedman presented “Enhanced Methods to Forecast Travel Behavior in Response to Travel Time Reliability and Pricing” at last week’s Travel Model Improvement Program (TMIP) webinar.

His presentation, which had 121 attendees, described the work undertaken to enhance the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) activity-based model’s sensitivities to priced infrastructure and travel time reliability. The enhancements implemented during this project are based on research conducted under the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) C04 track to improve understanding of how highway congestion and pricing affect travel demand.

RSG Project Highlighted in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (Pittsburgh regional planning agency) freight plan that RSG helped create, in collaboration with WRA, was featured earlier this week in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The article, titled “Pittsburgh regional freight movement expected to increase 40 percent by 2040,” covered the highlights of the plan, particularly the dramatic increase in freight movement projected for the region over the next few decades and what performance measures should be carefully monitored to accommodate this growth.
