Our center supports innovations in developing multimodal solutions for mitigating congestion. This theme was selected because
congestion mitigation is one of the top priorities of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) as well as for the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT), our partner agency. The theme was also chosen because addressing congestion via
multimodal means is an approach we believe is likely to be successful, since it considers the transportation system in its entirety
rather than one or more independent parts.

DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE


am very pleased
to share with you
this report which
provides an overview of
activities conducted during
the CMS' second year of
operation. Over the past
12 months, the center
coordinated yet another call
for proposals, which yielded
a total of six newly funded
research projects for 2008-
2009. Since its inception in
2007, the center has funded
a total of 13 projects that are
currently underway. The
first round of projects are
about to be completed with
draft final reports currently
under review. We expect the
results of that work to be
published in various journals
and presented at conferences
in the coming year. Watch
our Web site for postings of
final reports as projects are
completed.

In addition to the
aforementioned research, this
year the center picked-up
seven match projects from


the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
for a grand total of 11
match projects to-date. The
CMS faculty and staff are
continuing to work with
FDOT, our major partner, to
advance the state of the art in
transportation and congestion
mitigation and to disseminate
these research results to the
professional community.

The total number of
graduate students enrolled
in transportation-related
advanced degree programs
has risen to 69, an increase
of more than 20 percent over
last year. The concurrent
degree program with the
Department of Urban &
Regional Planning has begun
to attract new students, and
one of the first students to
have joined this program,
Benito Perez, graduated in
spring of this year and is now
working for the Hampton
Roads Metropolitan Planning
Organization in Chesapeake,
Va. For this coming academic
year, the CMS has also
attracted students from other
departments (Industrial &


Computer & Information
Science & Engineering) who
are interested in concurrent
degrees in transportation.

Our undergraduate summer
internship program this year
was once again very successful
with four undergraduate
students chosen out of a
total of 19 applicants. These
four students worked under
the mentorship of a faculty
advisor on a specific research
project. They attended weekly
seminars on various topics
and presented their work at
the end of the summer to
transportation faculty and
graduate students.

This past year the CMS
sponsored or co-sponsored
a total of 26 seminars (an
increase of more than 60
percent over last year's
numbers) which were
attended by faculty, students,
and other professionals. A
symposium on congestion
mitigation strategies was
organized in November
of last year, where U.S.
Congressman John L. Mica
(R-Fla.), Linda Watson,


Systems Engineering and CEO of LYNX, and C. David


Brown II of Broad and Cassel
spoke on transportation and
congestion-related issues
to UF faculty, students, and
staff. Our Annual Student
Conference that was held at
the beginning of this year was
also a success, with various
students presenting work
related to their CMS projects.
For additional information on
streaming videos of previous
seminars and upcoming
events, please visit our Web
site at http://cms.ce.ufl.edu/.

I am looking forward to
another busy and challenging
year. As we move forward to
advance the transportation
state-of-the-art, we will work
to engage researchers and
practitioners alike on pressing
issues related to congestion
mitigation and toward
building more sustainable,
environmentally-friendly
communities.


Sincerely,




Lily Elefteriadou, Ph.D.
CMS Director

EXTERNAL ADVISORY BOARD


The role of the External Advisory Board (EAB) is to guide the activities of the CMS. The board has been instrumental in generating ideas for research projects, and
they also evaluate the research selection and performance processes, guide educational activities and assist in technology transfer at the local, state and national levels.


Our board members represent a wide-range of sectors such as the Florida Department of Transportation, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA), academia, local government and private industry. In 2009, two new members were added to the board: Elizabeth Birriel, Deputy
State Traffic Operations Engineer at FDOT, and Linda Watson, CEO of LYNX, the public transportation authority serving the Orange, Osceola and Seminole
counties in Florida.


The second meeting of the EAB took place in March 2009. The board provided the CMS with excellent feedback and provided recommendations related to future
research directions as well as student preparation and activities.

Research at the CMS is conducted by a multidisciplinary group of faculty working together to develop methods that will mitigate congestion problems both nationally
and internationally. Some specific areas of research in congestion mitigation include traffic operations, congestion pricing and transportation and land use planning. The
multidisciplinary nature of the CMS allows it to utilize valuable expertise in subject areas such as demand modeling, urban planning, traffic flow theory and systems analysis,
as well as statistics, optimization, simulation and computer methods.

The CMS employs a rigorous, multi-step, peer-reviewed research selection process which includes a pre-proposal submitted by principal investigators (PIs) that is reviewed
by the center's Project Review Committee (faculty not associated with the pre-proposal). Based on these peer-reviews, selected pre-proposals are invited for full proposal
submission. Full proposals are peer-reviewed by external (outside UF) reviewers and selections of final projects are made based on the input of these reviewers. CMS projects
are selected to support the objectives of the center, the FDOT and the USDOT.

Final reports and any other publications generated from these projects will be posted on the CMS Web site at http://cms.ce.ufl.edu/research/completed projects.php. Quarterly
reports continue to be collected on all 2008 projects and are reviewed to ensure that each project is progressing as planned.

In fall 2008, the CMS issued its second call for pre-proposals for the new 2009-2010 project season. Out of 13 pre-proposals submitted, eight were invited to proceed to the full
proposal stage. After evaluating the results of the external reviews, the CMS selected six projects for funding with a total of $499,402 in grants awarded.

The Florida Department of Transportation has partnered with the CMS to provide matching funds for the center. Since the center's inception, it has been awarded a total of
11 FDOT match-projects worth $1,334,994. A list of CMS and FDOT-funded projects appear in the following pages.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES


CMS-affiliated students are a
dynamic group who organize and
participate in many activities with
research, educational and social
benefits. In fall 2008, 10 students
from the transportation program
attended the TRANSPO 2008
Conference in Orlando, Fla Five
entries were submitted at TRANSPO
for the student poster competition
by CMS-affiliated students. Those
winning awards included Alexandra
Kondyli (1st Place) for her work
on "Driver Behavior at Freeway-
Ramp Merging Areas: Focus Group
Findings" and Abishek Komma
and Abigail Osei-Asamoah (2nd
Place) for their work on "Estimating
Capacity of a Signalized Intersection
with a Left-Turn Lane Using a
Probabilistic Approach." Other
entries included posters from
Dimitra Michalaka ("Proactive and
Robust Dynamic Pricing Strategies
for High Occupancy/Toll Lanes"),
Ziqi Song ("Non-negative Pareto-
Improving Tolls with Multiclass
Network Equilibria") and Yingyan
Lou ("Freeway Service Patrol
Deployment Planning for Incident
Management and Congestion
Mitigation").


In January 2009, 18 CMS-
affiliated students traveled to the 88th
Annual Transportation Research
Board Conference in Washington,
D.C. This experience presented
an opportunity for students to
network with their peers from
other universities and with other
transportation professionals. CMS-
affiliated students also participated
in the Southeastern Transportation
Center (STC), a consortium
comprised of 10 universities of
which UF is a member.
In line with a very
energetic group of students is also
a very productive student chapter
of the Institute of Transportation
Engineers (ITE). Led by Vipul
Modi, the chapter's president this
year, the student organization has
been successful in coordinating and
participating in a variety of activities.
Highlights of these activities include
volunteering at TRANSPO 2008,
a field trip to the Florida Highway
Patrol and to the Transportation
Management Center, both in
Jacksonville, Fla, and participation
in the One Less Car challenge where
students pledged to commute by
alternatives to single occupancy
vehicles.
Other activities have
included social events such as


the chapter's annual bowling
event, a transportation program-
sponsored picnic, attendance at
the UF Transportation Research
Center reception during TRB and
participation at the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life
fundraiser.

CONCURRENT DEGREE
PROGRAM

The concurrent degree program
prepares students for a career in the
interdisciplinary field of planning,
designing and operating urban
infrastructure. Students take courses
in transportation engineering
and urban planning and earn a
Master of Engineering (M.E.) or
a Master of Science (M.S.), and a
Master of Arts in Urban & Regional
Planning (MAURP). Students
take a total of 73 credit hours (30 in
transportation engineering and 52
in urban planning, with nine credits
shared between both degrees).
The program takes three years to
complete. Funding opportunities
are available for students through the
CMS or the Departments of Civil
Engineering and Urban & Regional
Planning.
As of spring 2009, one
student has graduated from this


program with an M.S./MAURP
degree, and three others are working
toward their degree. The first
graduate of the concurrent degree
program, Benito Perez, is currently
working as a transportation engineer/
planner with the Hampton Roads
Metropolitan Planning Organization
in Chesapeake, Va. Mr. Perez's
position will focus on long range
transportation planning for the
Hampton Roads area.

TRANSPORTATION
RESEARCH INTERNSHIP
PROGRAM (TRIP)

This year, a total of 19 applications
were received, and four interns
were selected to participate in this
summer's program. TRIP is designed
to expose undergraduate students to
the world of transportation research.
Interns have the opportunity to
participate in cutting-edge research
at the CMS with faculty and graduate
students. CMS expectations are
that the internship will help spark
the students' interest in pursuing
graduate studies and/or a career in
transportation engineering. The
program runs from May to August
every summer, and students are
expected to work at least 20 hours
per week Interns participate in


research projects related to traffic
operations, highway capacity
and quality of service, reliability,
safety, travel modeling, network
optimization and transportation
systems planning. The projects are
funded partially by the CMS and
partially by other organizations
such as the Florida Department of
Transportation, the National Science
Foundation (NSF), and the National
Cooperative Highway Research
Program (NCHRP). Interns in
the program are supervised by a
faculty advisor and work in close
collaboration with master's and
doctoral students. Interns are
also required to attend seminars
presented by faculty and students.
Students are expected to produce
a research report related to their
assigned project and present it at the
end of their internship period.
