This report documents the actions taken by transportation agencies in response to catastrophic events as an overall effort to examine the impacts of different types of events on transportation system facilities and services. The findings and conclusions documented in this report are a result of the creation of a detailed chronology of events, a literature search, and interviews of key personnel involved in transportation operations decision-making for four events: [1] New York City, September 11, 2001, terrorist attack ; [2] Washington, D.C., September 11, 2001, terrorist attack ; [3] Baltimore, Maryland, July 18, 2001, rail tunnel fire ; [4] Northridge, California, January 17, 1994, earthquake
A safety roadmap for future plastics and composites intensive vehicles by Aviva Brecher( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report summarizes the approach, activities, and results of a study to evaluate the potential safety benefits of Plastics and Composites Intensive Vehicles (PCIVs), to enable their deployment by 2020. The main goals were to review and assess the state of knowledge in order to identify gaps, key research needs, and the challenges and opportunities for safety enhancements. PCIV-related safety enhancements that could benefit an aging driver population were selected as a priority research focus. The Situation Analysis was conducted, based on a review of technical literature, national research efforts on automotive light-weighting and the crash safety performance of advanced materials, complemented by a focused survey of diverse subject matter experts. The analysis identified near-term, midterm, and long-term research needs and priorities to facilitate future PCIV deployment. A PCIV Safety Roadmap was developed, which synthesizes the study findings and outlines follow-on research and milestones to measure progress towards the design, development and technology integration of fuel-efficient and safe PCIVs by 2020"--Technical report documentation page

Partnering for transportation success at Acadia National Park : a case study of the island explorer shuttle bus system at Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park : National Park Service alternative transportation program by Tisha Ann Weichmann( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the first in a series of case studies on lessons learned from planning and implementing alternative transportation systems (ATS) and from developing partnerships with local and regional communities. The report is supported by the National Park Service's Alternative Transportation Program (ATP), which promotes the introduction of transportation services that ease the impact of vehicle traffic on national park resources and the visitor experience. Results from these case studies illustrate the specific benefits that units of the National Park Service (NPS) can realize through partnering and help to build knowledge and expertise across NPS for planning and implementing ATS
Slab track field test and demonstration program for shared freight and high speed passenger service by Dingqing Li( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July 2003, two types of slab tracks were installed on the High Tonnage Loop at the Facility for Accelerated Service Testing, Pueblo, Colorado. Direct fixation slab track (DFST) and independent dual block track (IDBT) were installed into a 5-degree curve with 4-inch superelevation. The total slab track test section was 500 feet long, consisting of 250 feet of IDBT and 250 feet of DFST. The transition from each slab to the ballasted track was in a spiral to tangent test zone. For 3 years, 170 MGT of heavy axle load traffic was accumulated and the slab track test section supported 39-ton axle load train operations, while maintaining track geometry conditions for a Class-9 track
