Integrated Approach: Analysis, Modeling and Simulation Results for the ICM Test Corridor Article in Traffic Technology International Traffic Annual Showcase

Useful to Transportation and public affairs/marketing professionals at all levels (Federal, State and local) seeking to raise awareness in their area or organization about the ICM Initiative’s AMS methodology and test corridor results; Transportation practitioners looking to learn about AMS principles, methodology, and results.
Abstract This article was published in the February 2009 Traffic Technology International Traffic Annual Showcase magazine. It provides background information on the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative’s 8 Pioneer Sites (the sites are: Dallas, TX, Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX, San Diego, CA, Oakland, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Seattle, WA, and Montgomery County, MD). This article discusses the principles of the Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) methodology developed for the Test Corridor, the modeling approach used along the corridor, tools and procedures for various operating conditions, and the specific ICM strategies that were examined along the Test Corridor. The article summarizes the results from the AMS of the Test Corridor, describes the performance measures used to quantify the benefits of ICM, and describes the benefits of ICM determined through the AMS. Lastly, the article informs readers about the three sites chosen for AMS testing (Dallas, TX, San Diego, CA, and Minneapolis, MN) and the next steps for the ICM Initiative.
How to Use This article serves as a detailed overview of the AMS of the Test Corridor performed as part of Phase 2 of the ICM Initiative. Readers can learn more about the principles of AMS, the methodology used along the Test Corridor, and the results of the testing.
