SKETCH METHODS FOR ESTIMATING INCIDENT-RELATED IMPACTS: USER'S GUIDE
This document serves as a stand-alone guide for planners to use in applying the methodology for studying incident impacts and the effects of incident management strategies. It reformats material found in the Final Report in a more easily followed procedure for actual applications, and also provides an example of how the methodology is applied to a freeway corridor. Given the complexity of the equations for predicting delay, it is recommended that planners imbed them in a spreadsheet or other suitable software and that they be checked thoroughly before they are applied. Input data can be developed off-line. An example of a spreadsheet format is presented as the tables in Chapter 4.0 for guidance.
