RESULTS OF IMPLEMENTING LOW-COST FREEWAY INCIDENT-MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES

The purpose of this paper is to report on the demonstration of a low-cost freeway incident-management methodology. The results of the demonstration indicated that the delay caused by accidents, spills, breakdowns, and other incidents was reduced by 45 percent by implementing three different solutions. This paper presents before-and-after incident data and estimated versus actual delay savings. The major finding of this research was that the method developed to estimate delay caused by incidents and to evaluate proposed solutions is appropriate and merits further testing. /Author/
