U of M researchers, students share work at TRB

At this year’s Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting, held January 13-17 in Washington, DC, University of Minnesota researchers shared their work in more than 40 sessions. Their papers and posters covered a range of topics, from accessibility to asphalt pavement to tribal transportation safety.

One paper, coauthored by Professor Greg Lindsey of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, was honored by the Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee. The paper, which focused on methods for producing valid estimates of annual average nonmotorized traffic, was one of two selected to receive the committee’s Outstanding Paper Award for 2019.

In addition, CTS funded travel awards for 10 graduate students to attend the meeting, where they presented research and networked with other attendees.
