  • Abstract:
    Colorado’s oil and gas industry is continually evolving, and there have been considerable changes in drilling techniques and geographic focus since the 2010 CDOT research study on Energy Development and the Transportation System. This research study builds upon the 2010 study and aims to answer the following questions: - What are other states with similar levels of oil and gas activity doing to recoup the costs of the industry’s impacts to roads? - How do the trip generation characteristics of oil and gas development differ based on variables such as: well organization (i.e., number of wells per pad), drilling technology (i.e., horizontal vs. vertical), fracking activity, pipeline infrastructure, and development phase (i.e., construction, drilling, completion, production)? - What are the truck typologies and duration for various phases of development and what are the corresponding impacts (ESAL)? - What are the industry’s impacts (in terms of reduction of drivability life and costs to offset the impacts) on a per-mile basis? - What variables affect the level of industry impacts (e.g., current drivability life, seasonality of activity, freeze/thaw cycle, duration of activity compounded with environmental impacts, etc.) - How do the bridges on the State Highway system with weight and/or height restrictions affect the industry (e.g., rerouting requirements, bridge replacements for improved access)? - What areas of the state are currently most affected by the oil and gas industry and what might future scenarios of oil and gas activity in Colorado look like? – What is the magnitude of the oil and gas industry’s impacts on the State Highway System? (How much truck activity on the state highway system is related to the industry? What portion of the loads on the state highway system is related to the industry? What are the estimated costs to offset the industry impacts?) - What State Highways are generally most susceptible to industry impacts, given the current road conditions, current oil and gas activity and future development scenarios? - What is the magnitude of the oil and gas industry’s
