Integrated Corridor Management

This article describes how efficient traffic management can maximize utilization of infrastructure assets and minimize delays and travel times for users. A new emerging model for operating roadway transportation networks called integrated corridor management (ICM) has emerged around the world. This is particularly true in California, where several ICM projects are currently under way. All congested cities, urban areas and regions have problem corridors that are heavily traveled and problematic from the congestion management, safety and mobility standpoints. These areas are often the origin-destination place where people are commuting from the city center to neighboring suburbs. In order to manage these corridors, and urban areas as a whole, agencies have upgraded technology systems to a higher degree and this includes agencies that manage freeways. The article discusses how ICM and intelligent transportation system (ITS) concepts are designed to manage facilities and modes in a coordinated manner and several project in California are discussed.
