Last week, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) issued a statewide news release explaining that funding shortfalls for infrastructure will have significant negative impacts on the state economy and resident’s quality of life in the long-term.

One of the reports that the release references, “Rough Roads Ahead 2,” relied on the Oregon Statewide Integrated Model (SWIM) to study an issue many state DOTs are facing—declining revenue and increasing costs due to the need to maintain and/or replace deteriorating infrastructure. RSG’s Joel Freedman and Ben Stabler helped build the model used for the analysis, and—along with RSG’s Nagendra Dhakar—assisted ODOT staff define alternatives to be tested in the model, analyzed model outputs, and interpreted results.

See the Oregon Rough Roads/Pavement Reports website for more details:

Two RSG-involved projects received recognition at the American Council of Engineering Companies of NH (ACEC NH) Engineering Excellence awards banquet last week.

RSG assisted AECOM by collecting and analyzing traffic and survey data for the “NH Statewide Rest Area and Welcome Center Study,” which received an honorable mention.

In addition, the RSG project “Your Guide to Promoting Walking and Bicycling Accommodations in New Hampshire” received a silver award. The guide, completed in collaboration with the New Hampshire Department of Transportation​ (NHDOT) and its Bicycle & Pedestrian Transportation Advisory Committee (BPTAC), informs bicycle and pedestrian stakeholders on how to most effectively engage in the transportation project planning and design process.

Many thanks to the NHDOT and their BPTAC for involving us in this project and for their commitment to demystifying transportation project development for their stakeholders. We were thrilled to be a partner in that process.
