Approximately two pedestrians and/or bicyclists are killed every day in crashes involving a large truck or bus. In these crashes, failure to yield right-of-way is a leading contributing factor at intersections and mid-blocks. Simply put, pedestrians and bicyclists may not be aware that large trucks and buses have larger blind spots, wider turning radii and […]
Nearly all regions of the state have benefited economically from unprecedented energy production over the last 10 years. However, significant road repair needs resulting from the energy boom are estimated to be $2 billion each year for the next 20 years, based on the findings of a Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) study performed for the […]
Picture a system in which transporters powered by electric motors carry trailers from trucks and containers from ships on an elevated track above existing highway right-of-way, safely separated from passenger traffic.
In recent years, there has been a boom of energy-related activities in Texas, but many short- and long-term impacts on the state’s right-of-way and infrastructure are not properly documented.
In recent years, there has been a boom of energy-related activities in Texas. While these efforts enhance the state’s ability to produce energy reliably, many short- and long-term impacts on the state’s right of way and infrastructure are not properly documented. The Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) recently completed a project to document some of these […]
