Alternatives to Herbicides: Integrated Vegetation Management Project

Roadside rights-of-way are important technical and ecological features of the landscape. Managers of the vegetation in those rights-of-way are increasingly focused on environmental stewardship. Managers are interested in practices that will produce and demonstrate economically sound, socially responsible, and environmentally sensitive decision making and operational practice.

Evaluation, prioritization and selection of transportation
investment projects in New York City

Over the last decade, a large number of high capital cost transportation projects
have been proposed for the New York City Region. Many have resulted from addressing
evolving capacity needs, changes in regional demographics and economics, meeting the
improvements necessitated by operating century old subway systems and recognizing the
impact of moving freight in a dense region. But the catalyst for bringing all of these projects
to the attention of the public and all regional agencies was the tragedy of September 11, 2001.

Evaluating the feasibility of a passive travel survey collectionin a complex urban environment: Lessons learned fromthe New York City case study

The combination of increasing challenges in administering household travel surveys and advances in global positioning systems (GPS)/geographic information systems (GIS) technologies motivated this project. It tests the feasibility of using a passive travel data collection methodology in a complex urban environment, by developing GIS algorithms to automatically detect travel modes and trip purposes.

Estimation of Time and Other Benefits from Nine Proposed Transit Capital Projects In New York City

Momentum is growing for an ambitious round of investments in transportation projects in New
York City. At a time of fiscal crisis, and uncertainties over the direction of the economy in
Lower Manhattan and the city as a whole, new transportation infrastructure is increasingly being
seen as critical for the city?s future. Buoyed by calls from elected officials and civic and
business groups, a wide array of government agencies ? including the Metropolitan
Transportation Authority, the Port Authority, New Jersey Transit, the New York State

Economic Competitiveness:Performance Measures for Transportation

<p>The New York State Department of Transportat ion (NYSDOT) is developing a comprehensive set of measures that link investments in transportation to the general economic performance of the New York State Economy. The agency would like to understand in particular how NYSDOT investments singularly or in concert with investments by State and Local governments and Public Agencies/Authorities could improve economic competitiveness. As in the rest o f the U.S., transport systems have been designed to link, impact and even stimulate economic activites.
