From bridges to roadways to stormwater runoff, advanced civil engineering techniques improve the infrastructure and resources we depend on every day. At the Ohio Research Institute for Transportation and the Environment, we develop transportation infrastructure and environmental engineering solutions by monitoring and evaluating the health of bridges, pipes and pavement; characterizing and evaluating the performance of materials; monitoring foundations and retaining walls; examining highway safety and winter maintenance; studying noise abatement for highways; performing subsurface characterization and exploration; and inventing solutions for the remediation of highway storm water runoff and acid mine drainage. ORITE was selected by the Ohio Department of Transportation to research the design and construction of "perpetual pavement" with double the lifespan of typical pavements.
