With growing numbers of personal vehicles sharing the roadways and an ever increasing number of trucks of larger size, freight traffic operational and safety issues become more and more important. Benefits of advanced infrastructure and operational system planning can only be realized through safe and efficient traffic operations. Leveraging the existing research capability, this Center will explore effectiveness and safety impacts of alternative freight traffic management strategies. Major components of the Center’s Safety and Operations research include regional freight traffic management, freight traffic safety, and application of information and communication technologies to improve freight mobility.
