a Tier II University Transportation Center
in 2006, the University of Delaware UTC is housed within the Department
of Civil & Environmental Engineering
and organized within the Delaware
Center for Transportation (DCT). The theme of the Center is resiliency
of transportation corridors. The overall goal of the center is to
support research, education, and technology transfer that will improve
our ability to plan, design, construct, manage, and maintain an advanced
The Center draws on Delaware's strategic location in a region with all
transportation modes that support economic development and improved quality
of life and on corridors that are of national significance as a testbed
for our work. The region is representative of many others with significant
issues related to congestion, safety, aging infrastructure, and the competing
demands of transporting individual travelers and freight while protecting
on highway, transit, and freight corridors, the UDUTC addresses problems
of national importance as well as those that are specific to Delaware
but have the potential for results that are transferable to other parts
of the country. Advanced research focuses on the use of data to better
understand and improve the resiliency of transportation corridors to both
short- and long-term pressures and the development of tools to support
the integrated management of corridors.
