Integrated Corridor Management Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation Test Corridor Model Description

File NTL #14413 HTML | PDF (3.9 MB)
Useful to Transportation engineers and other professionals at Federal, State and local government agencies interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM.
Abstract This document provides a description and definition of the test corridor (San Francisco California's I-880 corridor) FHWA used to validate the ICM Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) methodology. This document also provides explanatory meta-data including an inventory of the facilities in the test corridor, and the key challenges in providing efficient traffic operations in the test corridor. See related documents for more information: "ICM AMS Methodology" and "ICM AMS Experimental Plan for the Test Corridor" also in the Knowledgebase.
How to Use This document will help orient transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM to ICM and the ICM AMS framework. Understanding the characteristics, challenges, and capabilities of the ICM test corridor can help transportation engineers and managers in other corridors tailor and apply the ICM AMS approach to their corridor's unique conditions and existing tools. Readers will improve their general understanding of ICM, modeling and simulation in general, and the unique contributions that the ICM AMS approach offers corridor managers seeking to optimize their transportation networks.
