Transportation


 

Overview

Recent faculty research in transportation involves defining and measuring the street network and an empirical study considering the role of street patterns, connectivity and network density in road safety and sustainability. The parking research includes analyzing mixed-use centers in small New England cities, investigating the effects of parking on urbanism and a reassessment of on-street parking.

Professor Wesley Marshall has been working on planning and site design issues related to civil and transportation engineering for more than the 10 years. A native of Watertown, Massachusetts, he is a 1998 graduate of the University of Virginia and a 2006 recipient of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship.

Professor Bruce Janson is Director of the Transportation Research Center (TRC) at CU Denver. He received his PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois. Prior to joining the CU Denver faculty in 1990, he was an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University from 1981 to 1987 and worked at Oak Ridge National Lab from 1988 to 1990. He is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems and has authored or co-authored over 40 articles in refereed journals and proceedings. His primary research areas are statistical analyses of crash data, highway capacity analysis and simulation, traffic engineering methods, network modeling, and traffic impact assessment.
