The purpose of this report is to document Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) techniques on IBRD (Innovative Bridge Research and Development) project 102470 for the construction of Bridge N-16-Q on State Highway 69 over Turkey Creek. The project demonstrated faster pier erection by utilizing precast pier caps to eliminate concrete cure time from the critical path in the construction schedule., Richard Osmum, Hoang H.

Adaptive signal control uses real-time data collected by system detectors to optimize signal timing for each intersection in the corridor. The use of real-time data means that signal timing along the corridor changes to accommodate the traffic patterns at any given time of the day. Test systems were set up in Greeley and Woodland Park, Colorado., Description based on online resource; title from PDF cover; (viewed January 2013), "July 2012.", "Report No. CDOT-2012-6, Final Report.", Includes bibliographical references (p. 56-57).
The primary goal of the Study was to determine the technical and financial feasibility of implementing a high-speed transit system on a fixed guideway in Colorado's I-70 Mountain Corridor between Jefferson County (I-70/C-470 interchange) and the Eagle County Regional Airport. This Study determines the feasibility of AGS in the I-70 Mountain Corridor with a focus on three key areas: technology, alignment and land use, and cost, funding, and financing., "August 2014.", Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed February 2016)
The overall purpose of the Colorado Department of Transportations (CDOTs) Air Quality Program Book is to provide a single-source reference that summarizes the major elements of CDOT's various Air Quality Programs. The Air Quality Program Book is intended to give the user the opportunity to assess project-specific needs and provide direction to additional information, as needed., Appendix A mentioned on page 36 never published., Bibliography: page 30., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed September 2016)
This Air Quality Action Plan is the first step in implementing the CDOT Air Quality Policy Directive 1901. CDOT's air quality policy promotes a forward looking vision of sustainable fleet management to effectively control internal transportation emissions and guides public outreach and education to further the understanding of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mobile source air toxics (MSATs). This Air Quality Action Plan outlines proactive strategies designed to reduce transportation related GHG, air toxics and other related pollutant emissions statewide, thereby reducing the need to negotiate such measures in an ad hoc manner. The Air Quality Action Plan targets program development encompassing transit and sustainable community development, multi-modal freight movement and efficiency, operational highway management, congestion and idling reduction, innovations in fueling, engine maintenance and monitoring, retrofits, and alternative vehicle technologies., "May 23, 2012.", Bibliography: page 29., Description based on online resource; title from PDF cover; (viewed May 2015)

Due to budget challenges, Colorado is looking for alternative funding sources for the operation and maintenance of its interstate safety rest areas (SRAs). As CDOT continues to close rest areas due to tight budgets, it should look for alternatives to fund their operation and maintenance. These alternatives include small-scale strategies such selling tourism related items or lottery tickets, and a large-scale strategy that includes developing a commercialized rest area outside of the interstate right of way through a public-private partnership. In addition, CDOT could advocate for changes to federal law., Brandon Howes., "March 2013.", Includes bibliographical references., Report No. CDOT-2013-3, Final report., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2016)
In October 1992, representatives from 19 of Colorado's scenic and historic highways and byways agreed to adopt the Byway Management Planning Framework. Before proceeding with implementation, the Commission conducted a survey about community partnerships, byway status and future needs. The intent was to assess: a) levels of community awareness, involvement and interest in the local byway; b) the extent key recreation and tourism sectors were represented in local byway activities; c) the need for future skills-building workshops on implementing the BMPF., data analysis conducted for the Colorado Scenic Highways and Historic Byways Commission, in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management, Colorado State Office ; completed by Patricia A. Stokowski., "December 1993.", Print version record.

Truncated base mechanically stabilized earth walls are the MSE walls with narrow base excavation length and steep excavation slope designed to save construction cost while pushing the technological envelope of geosynthetic reinforcement development. A wall with truncated geometry of a narrow base length and steep excavation slope can significantly increase its base bearing pressure., Nien-Yin Chang, Hien Manh Nghiem, Shing Chun Wang., "February 2020.", "Prepared in cooperation with the US Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration.", Includes bibliographical references., Report No. CDOT-2020-01, Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed March 2020)
