Event description

Description

LUNCHTIME TECH TALK!

PRESENTED BY
Thomas M. Brennan, Ph.D., PE
Associate Professor, Civil Engineering
The College of New Jersey

Traditionally, work zones limit roadway capacity and increase the likelihood of queuing, leading to crashes within, and even before, a work zone. A smart work zone employs data-driven technologies to better manage the capacity and queuing to reduce the number of crashes, thereby improving safety conditions for roadway workers and improving the driving experience for travelers.

Dr. Thomas M. Brennan will discuss his research on the use of probe vehicle speed data and how it can enable transportation agencies to use work zone performance metrics to evaluate queues and congestion, and indirectly measure the impacts of crash events on work zone congestion. Performance metrics can be used to systematically evaluate work zone policies and procedures and evaluate what practices worked and did not work, and to determine how to design future work zones. The presentation will demonstrate how probe vehicle data can be used to measure the before, during, and after transportation network impacts of a construction project.

Please note: "Tickets" are for RSVP headcount only. This is a FREE EVENT. Your "Ticket" will guarantee that you have a seat for the event, due to limited space in the training room. There is no charge to attend.
