Piloting Reliability Research: Four States Apply Products to Projects Under Way

To make the core products of the Transportation Research Board’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Reliability focus area ready for implementation, SHRP 2 undertook four pilot projects in partnership with transportation agencies in California, Florida, Minnesota and Washington. This article describes these pilot projects. The pilots take an integrated approach and involve: 1) evaluating a set of five research projects that address the data collection to monitor travel time reliability; 2) using the data with different types of analysis tools to consider options for improving reliability; and 3) addressing reliability within the planning and programming processes. The resulting feedback from these pilot projects will help make the products more ready for implementation.
