  • Brusca, S.; Famoso, F.; Lanzafame, R.; Messina, M.; Wilson, J. (Research India Publications, 2017)
    The lack of sustainability and negative environmental impacts of using fossil fuel resources for energy production and their consequent increase in prices during last decades have led to an increasing interest in the ...
  • Lindsey, Greg; Singer-Berk, Lila; Wilson, Jeffrey S.; Oberg, Eric; Hadden-Loh, Tracy (Sage, 2019)
    This study reports traffic monitoring results at 30 locations on a 972-mi shared-use trail network across the east-central United States. We illustrate challenges in adapting the principles in the Federal Highway ...
  • Lindsey, Greg; Wilson, Jeffrey S.; Wang, Jueyu; Hadden-Loh, Tracy (Sage, 2017-01)
    Many municipalities, park districts, and nonprofit organizations have begun monitoring nonmotorized traffic on multiuse trails as the need for information about the use of facilities has grown and relatively low-cost sensors ...
