Come explore theoretical and practical applications of accelerated bridge construction. Learn who's using it, different methods available, benefits and risks, and what to consider for your next project. Led by Tom Melton, this workshop includes examples of real life projects as well as additional resources to explore this innovative practice. Tom has more than 30 years of experience in managing and designing transportation projects with an emphasis in structures.
This workshop presents dynamic examples of stereo photography, DTM, LiDAR, and bathymetry via 3-D visualization to monitor sediment deposition in reservoirs. Using real life examples, Dan Paulsen and Nathan Kempf share key insights with methodology, data compilation, analysis, and ArcGIS. Dan has more than 26 years of experience in aerial mapping, and is an ASPRS CP and GISP. Nathan has more than 10 years of experience, and is an ASPRS PT.
Learn how Arizona adapted the Michigan indirect left-turn intersection for its Arizona Parkway prototype facility, gain insights on the history of its development and operational issues encountered, and discuss its benefits and potential applications. Also learn about how an innovative parkway grade-separated interchange (PGSI) can accommodate indirect left turns at intersections requiring grade separation. Dan Marum has more than 30 years of experience managing and analyzing complex long-range transportation planning studies and traffic impact analyses.
Explore how design-build delivery can be used to address local agency maintenance projects. Not only for large-scale construction projects, these innovative ideas were used in the City of Kansas City, Missouri, who was able to quickly assemble, procure, and complete maintenance projects of any scale or size. Jim Townsend has more than 19 years of experience in managing and developing plans and programs throughout the Midwest, West, and Rocky Mountain region. He is currently serving as the program manager for the City of Kansas City’s roadway maintenance program.
Led by Jim Townsend, come learn about how a growing community is phasing right-of-way infrastructure to maximize developer-funded contributions for system development and minimize local agency maintenance waste, while integrating access management principles and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
Jim has more than 19 years of experience in managing and developing multimodal corridor, subarea, and regional plan developments throughout the Midwest, West, and Rocky Mountain region.
This interesting case study of the Pioneer Crossing Design-Build Project in Utah shares how a best value design-build procurement process resulted in one of the first Diverging Diamond interchanges to be constructed in the United States. Participate in discussions on how design-build procurement works using the Alternative Technical Concept (ATC) process, and how it can provide both low cost and innovative solutions for a project. Mark Scholfield has more than 35 years of experience and is certified by the Design-Build Institute of America.
Walk through this 11.5 mile long, 0.8 mile wide, 2,200-acre facility that houses a Run-Through Fueling Facility, Intermodal Ramp and Block Swap Yard, and hear interesting stories of challenges and successes. This nationally-recognized facility is located in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and sets a new standard in streamlining the rail block swap process, while increasing a railroad’s efficiency and effectiveness in delivering goods and services to the nation. David Olson is the Rail Division’s East Region Operations Manager and is the senior project manager and lead structural designer for railroad structures. Santa Teresa won the Dr. William W. Hay Award, nationally recognized by the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association, and an American Council of Engineering Companies Excellence in Engineering Award (National).
