Development of congestion management system methodology for the Indiana state highway network Choocharukul, Kasem ; Sinha, Kumares C ; Nagle, John L

By: Choocharukul, KasemContributor(s): Sinha, Kumares C | Nagle, John LPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2002Description: nr 1781, s. 40-8Subject(s): USA | Traffic control | | Road network | Improvement | Efficiency | Planning | 22Bibl.nr: VTI P8169:2002 RefLocation: Abstract: A methodology for developing congestion management-related projects for the Indiana state highway network is described. The methodology is based on a sketch planning analysis technique that can be used with limited input data. The software package provides estimates of costs and other effects of potential congestion mitigation projects to undertake in a given year, which can be used by planners and programmers in long-range planning. Project types include road widening, high-occupancy-vehicle facilities, ramp metering, incident management, and arterial traffic signal coordination. The impact is assessed in travel time savings, vehicle operating cost savings, crash cost savings, and emission reductions. An example application of the methodology is given for the 7.81-mi segment of I-65 between Interchanges 116 and 123 in the Indianapolis area.
