• Developing Vehicle Weight Monitoring Program Design Guidelines Based on Advanced Data Analytics

    NCDOT Research Project Number: 2021-30

 Executive Summary

  • The goal of this research is to help NCDOT identify and adopt a new system for monitoring freight activity, especially truck weight distributions on the highways across the state. To that end, we will document the current and future perceived use of WIM data by different stakeholders in the agency, elsewhere in state, in the country and in global companies. We will build a knowledge base that aids with these deliberations.

    The project team will explore ways that the state’s freight truck traffic monitoring system can be used as a decision support tool rather than data source for federal reporting requirements, including pavement design, bridge design, asset management, load rating, commercial vehicle weight enforcement support, and freight planning and logistics. The proposed project outcomes will enable NCDOT to maximize the benefits of the new WIM program to offset the investment required to generate reliable traffic load data.   The project team anticipate's that their research findings will be used in decision-making by multiple divisions and groups within NCDOT.
