Advances In Strategies For Implementing Integrated Corridor Management (ICM)

Many jurisdictions have implemented a variety of strategies for maximizing flow on facilities by using all available pavement and managing their facilities by using new technologies and better techniques. Most recognize the importance of interjurisdictional coordination with emergency responders, maintenance and incident response, and construction management, as well as providing timely notification to the public in managing their systems. Monitoring traffic operations through traffic management centers with reliable detection and surveillance and available deployment strategies (e.g., incident response) is an active engagement in reducing recurrent and nonrecurrent congestion. Pulling this all together through Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) is essential to successful system management. ICM actively integrates the separate strategies (e.g., ramp metering, arterial coordination, detour planning, traveler information, managed lanes) in a real-time manner, and new challenges in traffic management center staffing and funding. The scan team visited five locations over two, one-week scans to review existing and planned ICM programs. The scan team identified several key attributes that regions need to implement for their ICM program to be successful: institutional integration, technical integration, and operational integration. The scan team found that these attributes have various levels of maturity at the sites visited.
