U.S. DOT to host a Full-Day Session on the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM)
The U.S. Department of Transportation will host a full day session on the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) on Sunday January 22, 2012 in Washington, DC. The meeting will take place as part of the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting.
ICM is a component of active transportation and demand management technologies and solutions that are rapidly converging. The two Pioneer Sites, Dallas, TX and San Diego, CA, are actively developing ICM system design documents.
About the Meeting:
This session will be divided into two tracks:
The Morning Track (9:00am – 12:00pm), will feature traffic management experts from around the country discussing the technical approaches to the management of freeway and arterial systems in an integrated corridor. This track will also review modeling and simulation approaches for dynamic, multimodal corridor analysis, and results from three ICM Pioneer Sites.
The Afternoon Track (1:30pm – 5:00pm) will focus on strategic challenges and implications of ICM, including traveler behavior and response. You, as transportation leaders in the field, will have the opportunity to ask questions of real-world implementers from ICM Pioneer Sites, and top experts in traveler behavior, performance measures, and evaluation about the potential of ICM to transform corridor operations; challenges and opportunities in implementation; and how to integrate the latest technologies in order to optimally improve corridor performance.
To inform attendees about ICM, the panel will also educate attendees about the two Pioneer sites that are working to prepare to demonstrate ICM in 2013. Preview results from the analysis, modeling and simulation of three Pioneer Sites and ICM knowledge and technology transfer resources that are expected in 2012.

The meeting is jointly sponsored by the following TRB Committees: Freeway Operations (AHB20); Intelligent Transportation Systems (AHB15); Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations (AHB10); Traffic Signal Systems (AHB25).
ICM is a promising tool in the congestion management toolbox that leverages existing intelligent transportation systems (ITS) investments along a corridor. It is a component of active transportation and demand management technologies and solutions that are rapidly converging.
By providing actionable information about available modes, routes, parking and travel conditions when you need it, ICM enables travelers to make informed decisions about their travel throughout a corridor. With ICM, transportation managers can more dynamically manage transportation demand across the entire corridor network in real-time, thus improving reliability, travel time, and environmental impacts along the corridor.
The U.S. DOT ICM Initiative is jointly sponsored by the Research and Innovative Technology Administration’s (RITA) Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Programs Office (ITS JPO), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
