Many regions of the country are faced with serious congestion problems (both recurring and non-recurring) in all or parts of the freeway/arterial network. While traditional traffic management techniques have provided some relief, conditions have not improved. Regional forecasts on population growth and travel demand indicate that these problems will continue to worsen. This means that new traffic management techniques will be needed to improve throughput. Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMSs) integrate traditional traffic management techniques with advanced technology for the purpose of monitoring and controlling vehicle flow and providing motorists with travel information and guidance on a real-time basis. This manual was created to serve as a guideline for transportation agencies in their effort to plan and implement an ATMS. It provides methodologies for conducting needs analysis, planning and design of an ATMS, and funding alternatives.
