INDUSTRY INVOLVEMENT

TRB

Transportation Research Board
The Transportation Research Board (TRB), as part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, is a leading organization in transportation improvements and innovation. TRB facilitates the trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based exchange of information, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation. Many Kimley-Horn staff begin their involvement in TRB during college and continue that participation throughout their careers. Our staff have been selected to chair committees, lead workshops, facilitate lectern sessions, present research, and publish papers in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board (TRR). To date, we have written or contributed to more than 50 papers published in the TRR.

A4: Weather / Resiliency, Part 1

August 30, 2022 | 10:30am – 12:00pm MT

Attendees will learn about new methods for addressing weather and resiliency in transportation planning. The first presentation will outline the methodology used to develop a scalable framework within the MTP update process that allows the MPO to leverage existing processes to analyze resilience. The presentation will also include a description of the tools and resources used to implement this framework and develop new strategies. The second presentation will demonstrate the advantages of forecasting future flooding events, determining the impacts of those events, and systematically modeling and testing the benefits gained by implementing various resiliency interventions. To this end, the presentation uses Boulder County’s use of innovative tools and techniques as a case study. Finally, in 2020, the Mount Hood National Forest experienced catastrophic wildfire events that damaged transportation assets along the Clackamas River corridor. The United States Forest Service, in coordination with the Oregon Department of Transportation and FHWA, completed an initial corridor assessment to understand the extent of damage and begin planning for transportation improvements in a post-fire environment. The final presentation will offer an overview of the Phase 1 study process, technical recommendations, and areas of further study for a Phase 2 OR 224 Corridor Master Plan.

B7: Traffic Safety Partnerships Workshop

August 31, 2022 | 8:30am – 10:00am MT

In this workshop, participants will learn how to identify road safety concerns typical to gateway communities, develop action plans to address them, and forge partnerships to secure funding and implement those solutions. Facilitators will share examples of successful road safety partnerships from gateway communities across the country. Participants will also work through one of several case studies in small groups to identify likely road safety concerns and mitigation strategies, appropriate partners to engage with in developing solutions, and potential approaches to funding and implementation.

B8: Traffic Safety Planning

August 31, 2022 | 10:30am – 12:00pm MT

During this session participants will learn key factors to identify when analyzing transportation systems for safety; learn about a data collection system for animal/vehicle collisions; and techniques for fostering partnerships between transportation system owners.
