Useful to Transportation infrastructure engineers, managers and operators interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM.
Abstract This document presents the Concept of Operations (Con Ops) for an Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) system along the I-270 Corridor in Montgomery County, Maryland. It progresses logically from a discussion of characteristics and conditions in the corridor, to an examination of the corridor's transportation operational needs, to identification of an integrated management concept for addressing those needs. The corridor measures approximately 20 miles in length and consists of a variety of transportation networks, including the Freeway Network (including I-270); the Arterial and Connector Route Network (including MD-355); the MARC Commuter Rail Network; the Metrorail Network; the MTA Commuter Bus Network; the Metrobus Network, and; the Ride On Network.
How to Use Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a guide to develop their own concepts of operation for ICM. Concept exploration is the first step in the ICM lifecycle.
