What strategies including incentives and reducing VMT could be explored to build local economies (goods/services) to reduce VMT, increase livability measures and minimize energy use?
Communicating Messages on Climate Change and Energy to Decision-Makers, Transportation Practitioners, System Users
What messages on climate change and energy are most effective with what audiences: decision-makers, transportation practitioners, system users? How can we communicate effects, provide options/incentives, policies (i.e., pricing)?
How can we address livability in NEPA and other cross-cutting legislation?
How can we integrate and strengthen the relationship between land use and transportation planning?
Defining and Measuring Livability – Implications for Land Use and Transportation Planning at Local Level
How do we define livability and what are the best metrics for measuring it? Are there different implications for land use and transportation planning at the local level and what…
Do we need to change old assumptions in our travel forecast models to account for rising gas prices (VMTs), economic variability, generational perspectives, and personal behaviors?
How can transportation sustainability be balanced with affordability?
Porous pavements have been identified as a potential strategy for minimizing the use of deicing chemicals for winter maintenance. The use of porous pavements for parking lots is on the…

Optimization of the Subsurface Gravel Wetland for Linear ROW and Pond Retrofits for Nutrient Controls
Subsurface gravel wetlands(SGW) have proven successful as a nitrogen control strategies however costly to construct. SGW have been shown to remove >95% of NO3-N and >55% removal of TP and…
