Integrated Corridor Management: Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) Results for the Test Corridor Article in Mass Transit This article was published in the September 2008 issue of Mass Transit. It provides information on the 8 Pioneer Sites chosen in 2006 by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative (the sites are: Dallas, TX, Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX, San Diego, CA, Oakland, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Seattle, WA, and Montgomery County, MD).The article provides an overview of the Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) principles and methodology. The article also discusses the validation of the AMS methodology through the application of AMS on the Test Corridor. The article describes the simulation models used in AMS and how these models characterize the corridor. The article discusses the preliminary results from the AMS on the Test Corridor, the preliminary benefits of ICM that were quantified through this phase of the Initiative, and the performance measures used to quantify the benefits of ICM on the Test Corridor. Lastly, the article discusses the three sites chosen for AMS testing (Dallas, TX, San Diego, CA, and Minneapolis, MN) and the next steps for the ICM Initiative. This article can be used to raise awareness about the ICM Initiative, to learn more about the AMS testing methodology and results from the Test Corridor, and to learn about the next steps for the 3 AMS Pioneer Sites. 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; General public, public officials, and others who would like to learn more about the AMS methodology and Test Corridor results. 9/08
Integrated Approach: Analysis, Modeling and Simulation Results for the ICM Test Corridor Article in Traffic Technology International Traffic Annual Showcase 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. 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. 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. 2/09
Integrated Corridor Management Article in Public Roads This article was published in the November/December 2010 issue of the Public Roads. The article provides a brief introduction and overview of the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Initiative, and then a summary of the Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) activities at the three AMS Pioneer Sites (Dallas, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and San Diego, CA). Preliminary results show an increase in travel time reliability and a considerable benefit for deploying ICM strategies at these sites. Lastly, the article touches on the lessons learned from the AMS phase and provides background information on the Demonstration activities that are forthcoming at the Dallas and San Diego Pioneer Sites. This article can be used to promote awareness for the ICM Initiative, learn about preliminary results from AMS activities, and gain an understanding of the ICM strategies that will be deployed at the Dallas and San Diego demonstration sites. Transportation and public affairs/marketing professionals at all levels (Federal, State and local) seeking to raise awareness in their area or organization about ICM and its successes; General public, public officials, and others who would like to learn more about the ICM Initiative. 12/10
