Concept of Operations for the I-15 Corridor in San Diego, California This Concept of Operations (Con Ops) document provides an overview of the San Diego region's Integrated Corridor Management System (ICMS) concept, describes current operations in the I-15 corridor, how they will function in the near term once the ICMS concept is operational, and identifies current and future responsibilities of San Diego regional stakeholders. The 21-mile I-15 corridor, including a Managed Lanes section, is already a model for the multi-modal deployment of the latest and evolving technologies for data collection, demand management, and pricing strategies. The San Diego region continues to seek the benefits of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) through capital investments in transit, highway, and arterial systems, while focusing on data sharing through early adoption of the Regional ITS Architecture. Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a guide to develop their own concept of operation for ICM. Concept exploration is the first step in the ICM lifecycle. Transportation infrastructure engineers, managers and operators interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM. 3/08
Concept of Operations for the I-270 Corridor in Montgomery County, Maryland 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. 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.

Concept of Operations for the I-394 Corridor in Minneapolis, Minnesota This Concept of Operations (Con Ops) document describes how an Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) system can effectively manage traffic and inform travelers throughout the corridor for the I-394 corridor in Minneapolis. The I-394 corridor serves as the core of a corridor that is critical to the movement of the over one million residents of Hennepin County. This corridor is served by a combination of three inter-related networks (a freeway network, a series of arterial highways, and a sophisticated transit system operated by three transit agencies). A driving tour of the corridor reveals a network of transit parking facilities, high occupant vehicle (HOV) bypasses; a freeway system that serves as the primary inbound/outbound access as well as serving to connect parallel access routes; and an arterial system that is coordinated and operates effectively and efficiently. In addition, innovations such as congestion pricing through High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes, shoulder access to buses, and reversible commuter lanes further add to the potential of the corridor. Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a guide to develop their own concept of operation for ICM. Concept exploration is the first step in the ICM lifecycle. Transportation infrastructure managers and operators interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM. 3/08
Concept of Operations for the IH-10 Corridor in San Antonio, TX This ICM Concept of Operations was developed under the project titled “TransGuide Integrated Corridor Management – Stage 1” as part of the USDOT’s Integrated Corridor Management program. The TransGuide™ ICM Concept of Operations document provides an overall vision and description of how ICM will be implemented in the San Antonio IH-10 corridor. San Antonio, Texas was selected as one of eight ICM pioneer sites for the development of Concepts of Operations, corridor data modeling, and development of functional requirements. This Concept of Operations document was developed in coordination with the San Antonio ICM team that includes the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) San Antonio District as the lead agency. Additional stakeholders include the City of San Antonio (CoSA), VIA Metropolitan Transit (VIA), Southwest Research Institute ® (SwRI ®), and the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI). Section 1.0 provides the scope of the document. Section 2.0, Operational Concepts, first provides a background description of the stakeholders, corridor, individual transportation networks, and needs. In addition it provides and documents the vision of how ICM operations will occur within the corridor. Section 3.0, Supported Operations, describes a number of operational scenarios that provide working examples of how ICM operations will occur in specific circumstances. Notes are included in Section 4.0. Transportation professionals in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a guide to develop their own concept of operation for ICM.
