Implementing a project and portfolio management system for TxDOT project development

Implementing a project and portfolio management system for TxDOT project development

Date: October 2011
Creator: Khwaja, Nabeel
Description: "Beginning in the summer of 1999, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) started developing the framework for implementing a sophisticated new system to manage its large and diverse portfolio of projects during their development phase. This was followed by the implementation itself for managing project schedules, project and portfolio resources and costs during their development cycle. This unique and challenging implementation across TxDOT encompassed all functional areas involved in the project development phase. It was successfully completed by overcoming technical, technological, and cultural challenges inherent with any implementation of this scale and magnitude."

Impacts of energy developments on the Texas Transportation System infrastructure

Impacts of energy developments on the Texas Transportation System infrastructure

Date: October 2011
Creator: Prozzi, Jolanda; Grebenschikov, Sergey; Banerjee, Ambarish & Prozzi, Jorge Alberto
Description: "Texas energy sector has a critical impact-historically and currently-on both the state economy and the Texas transportation system. The stat's various transportation modes, including rail, highways, pipelines, and ports, form a system that supports the energy sector in a number of ways."

Megaregion freight planning : a synopsis

Megaregion freight planning : a synopsis

Date: March 2012
Creator: Harrison, Rob.; Johnson, Donovan & Loftus-Otway, Lisa
Description: "Megaregion interest has grown strongly in the last decade and is now seen be a growing number of planners as offering effective contributions to problems such as modal congestion, development disparity, and air pollution that individual metropolitan areas or cities cannot resolve individually. Megaregion planning presents an alternative way of mitigating metropolitan problems of large-scale transportation systems, green infrastructure, and economic development and has attracted a number of transportation advocates since 2000."

Literature review of current practices in dealing with fluctuations of maintenance budgets

Literature review of current practices in dealing with fluctuations of maintenance budgets

Date: September 2011
Creator: Gonzales, Epigmenio.; Li, Wenxing; Murphy, Mike; O'Connor, James T.; Bhat, Chandra R. & Yildirim, Yetkin
Description: "A literature review was conducted to investigate current budget cutting strategies used in routine roadway maintenance planning, including methods and techniques that are employed by other state and international transportation organizations (DOT's). Methods that quantify impact and increased risk factors from the reduction of routine maintenance activities were investigated. Methods developed based upon previous research were tabulated and evaluated by objective criteria such as cost savings, resource savings, and road user/stakeholder satisfaction. The researchers reviewed the data and identified the most effective risk analysis techniques, which served as the basis for the maintenance risk modeling under this project."

Geosynthetic-reinforced unbound base courses: quantification of the reinforcement benefits

Geosynthetic-reinforced unbound base courses: quantification of the reinforcement benefits

Date: February 2012
Creator: Zornberg, Jorge G.; Ferreira, J.A.Z.; Gupta, R.; Joshi, R.V. & Roodi, G. H.
Description: "As part of Research Project 0-4829, a new testing device was developed and a monitoring program was initiated to evaluate the performance of geosynthetics used as reinforcement for unbound base courses. This implementation involves the use of the new testing device and procedures developed by the 0-4829 research project. Specifically, the testing involves a modified pullout device for characterization of the confined stiffness in geosynthetic reinforcements. The project also provides continued monitoring of 32 experimental test sections constructed on FM2 (Bryan District) for the purposes of correlating field performance with material characterization. The experimental component of this implementation project was accomplished by testing four different geosynthetic reinforcement products in order to verify the draft specifications recommended by project 0-4829. The field component of this implementation project involved continued condition survey, moisture monitoring, falling weight deflectometer (FWD) testing, and weather data gathering in order to establish the threshold of the proposed parameter in the new specification based on field performance."

Monitoring of experimental sections using a web-based database

Monitoring of experimental sections using a web-based database

Date: February 2012
Creator: Smit, Andrè€ de Fortier.; Prozzi, Jorge Alberto & Aguiar-Moya, Jose Pablo
Description: "In recent years, a number of databases have been developed as part of TxDOT's Research Program for a diversity of goals and objectives. However, there is no one database that collects and stores lessons learned from long-term field application of different technologies or methods - in particular, after the original research project has concluded. Establishing a database that can hold information from research and construction projects provides TxDOT personnel, practitioners, and researchers with a tool to reference information from past studies to supplement data and avoid duplication of efforts."
