Title Abstract How to Use Useful to Date 
Integrated Corridor Management: Implementation Guide and Lessons Learned The purpose of this ICM Implementation Guide is to provide information to ICM “early adopters” on how to plan, develop, deploy, operate, and maintain an ICM system (ICMS). The Guide describes the phases in the ICMS life cycle and the associated deliverables for each phase, focusing on how the ICM Pioneer Sites addressed each phase.

San Diego I-15 Integrated Corridor Management Project Presentation at the Multimodal Integrated Corridor Management Workshop This presentation, from the December 2007 Multimodal Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Workshop in Los Angeles, California, discussed various aspects of the San Diego ICM Pioneer Site. The focus of the presentation was on presenting the vision for the I-15 corridor, why the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) selected the I-15 corridor for their ICM project, and the needs of users who travel the corridor daily. The presentation lists several opportunities/benefits that SANDAG expects to gain from implementing ICM along the I-15 corridor, including the implementation of multimodal and smart growth principles, improvement of safety throughout the corridor, increased traveler information mechanisms, institutional partnerships, and networked transportation systems, both during normal and incident conditions. This presentation can be used as a starting reference regarding the San Diego ICM Pioneer Site in. It provides an overview of the goals and benefits that are expected as a result of implementing ICM concepts along the I-15 corridor. Transportation practitioners interested in learning more about the San Diego ICM Pioneer Site 12/07

Generic ICM Concept of Operations This is a high-level Concept of Operations (Con Ops) for a "generic" 15 mile-corridor, consisting of freeway, arterial, bus and rail networks, and serving a central business district. The document's primary purpose is to provide an example of an ICM Con Ops that can be used by agency and network owners as the basis for developing their own corridor-specific and real-world Concept of Operations. Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document to develop their own concepts of operation for ICM. It can also help transportation professionals at all levels (Federal, State and local) understand all of the elements involved in ICM. It is intended to help practitioners flexibly design their own custom, tailored concept of operations based on their corridor's unique conditions and requirements.
NOTES:
  • All information about the generic corridor herein is purely fictional, fabricated based on the Project Team's collective experience, to provide a basis for describing the ICM operational concepts herein. The CONOPS for a real corridor will have more information.
  • The actual situation for most real-world corridors will undoubtedly be different from this generic corridor in terms of network types and other corridor characteristics, stakeholders, institutional and technical environments and the ICM concept and operational capabilities as discussed herein. Accordingly, users should tailor the information and/or sections within each chapter of this Generic CONOPS to develop their site-specific ICM CONOPS to meet any and all of their unique corridor conditions.
  • The generic corridor and the associated CONOPS does not attempt to be all-inclusive with respect to the types of networks that might be included within a corridor, the ICM stakeholders, and the operational approaches and strategies to be deployed.

Develop Criteria for Delineating a Corridor Presents several guidelines and concepts that need to be considered when determining and delineating corridor boundaries. Its also discusses several approaches for utilizing these concepts and guidelines to identify the boundaries of a corridor. Transportation professionals in the field involved in some stage of the ICM lifecycle can use this document to help them define their ICM corridor, its boundaries, scope and reach.

Develop Alternative Definitions for Corridor and Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Discusses key attributes that were identified for possible inclusion in definitions used for the ICM initiative. It also presents final versions of these definitions, incorporating comments by FHWA and the ICM stakeholders. Transportation professionals in the field involved in some stage of the ICM lifecycle can use this document to help them define their ICM corridor, its boundaries, scope and reach. It offers various stakeholder and historical perspectives of how to define a corridor. Transportation infrastructure managers and operators 4/06

Integrated Corridor Management Systems Lessons Learned The Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) coordinates the posting of the lessons to their Lessons Learned Knowledge Resource. This link contains a list of Lessons Learned related to Integrated Corridor Management Systems (ICMS). The lessons learned were submitted by agencies and organizations around the country. A user can scroll through all of the lessons learned that have been submitted that relate to ICMS and click on lessons that they would like to read more about. Each lesson also contains contact information for the person who submitted the lesson. Lessons posted to this web site should not be considered as official policy or guidance from USDOT. This web site can be used when starting to implement ICMS to learn from the experiences of other agencies and organizations. Transportation infrastructure engineers, managers and operators interested in lessons learned by organizations implementing ICMS on their corridors.
