Director TRAC - University of Washington
Mark Hallenbeck is the Director of the Washington State Transportation Center (TRAC) office located at the University of Washington. He also teaches Urban Transportation Planning and Intelligent Transportation Systems in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Mr. Hallenbeck has been with TRAC for 24 years, after working for four years as a consultant in Washington, D.C.
Much of Mr. Hallenbeck's research at TRAC involves the collection, use, summarization, and reporting of data that describe urban roadway performance. A major focus of his research has been the creation of performance reports that not only describe how well the freeway system is (or is not) working, but also help decision makers understand why the a transportation agency wishes to undertake specific operational improvements, and what benefits those measures provide once they are implemented. He is currently working on enhancements to the Washington State Department of Transportation's performance reporting system so that it includes better arterial performance measures. He recently completed work looking to improve the Department's ability to understand the congestion trucks face. He is also working on new research that applies transportation system performance measurement within the land use development planning and permitting process and on research that improves the Department's ability to measure and report on the benefits of specific incident management strategies.
