Transportation infrastructure provides mobility, and thus access to people, goods, services and resources. The availability and level-of-service of these systems determine quality of life and the continuity of economic and business growth. In this special issue, we seek to publish papers that present interdisciplinary quantitative methods to support problems associated with monitoring, evaluating, expanding, repairing, replacing, and financing transportation infrastructure systems with the objective of ensuring that they are capable of performing the functions for which they were designed and built in a reliable, resilient, sustainable and equitable fashion. Example problems and methodologies include, but are not limited to:
  • Statistical methodologies to support assessment and prediction of (indicators associated with infrastructure) performance
  • Optimization methodologies to support resource allocation decisions: optimization and coordination of maintenance, reconstruction, capacity expansion (across networks of facilities), and while accounting for interdependencies with other infrastructure systems, e.g., communications, energy generation or transmission, etc.
  • Data-mining/"Big Data" approaches, motivated by recent technological developments to monitor the performance and operation of transportation infrastructure, with the intent to support managerial decision-making
