SYSTEM CHALLENGES OF TRAFFIC INCIDENT MANAGEMENT

Because of the restrictions and limitations confronting efforts to construct new urban freeways, it has become increasingly important to efficiently operate and manage those facilities that exist. Incident management is one element of freeway operation that is under intensive research and that appears to offer significant opportunity for improving the quality and quantity of service provided. This paper defines the various elements of the incident management system. The intent is to identify system considerations that are significant in the design and implementation of an incident management system including within it the elements of cost, response time, performance characteristics, and trade-off analyses.
