Integrated Corridor Management

Transportation corridors often contain underutilized capacity in the form of parallel roadways, single-occupant vehicles, and transit services that could be better leveraged to improve person throughput and reduce congestion. Facilities and services on a corridor are often independently operated, and efforts to date to reduce congestion have focused on the optimization of the performance of individual assets.

The vision of Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) is that transportation networks will realize significant improvements in the efficient movement of people and goods through institutional collaboration and aggressive, proactive integration of existing infrastructure along major corridors. Through an ICM approach, transportation professionals manage the corridor as a multimodal system and make operational decisions for the benefit of the corridor as a whole.

Through the ICM initiative, the U.S. DOT is providing guidance to assist agencies in implementing ICM and creating supporting analysis tools, approaches, and technical standards. In addition, the U.S. DOT selected two corridors - US 75 in Dallas, TX and I-15 in San Diego, CA - to demonstrate the nation's first ICM systems. To learn more about ICM and view materials developed as part of the ICM Initiative, visit the ICM Knowledgebase.
