TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS: FREEWAY MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNICATIONS. IN: HANDBOOK OF TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING

This chapter presents freeway management as a congestion-relief activity, which is wholly tied to the demand and capacity relationship. It also presents some strategies for optimizing capacity and for managing demand, and the infrastructure required to perform this management. The author provides a description of freeway management activities in real time. One of the most expensive and difficult components of real-time traffic management is establishing the ability to communicate with the management infrastructure in real time. The chapter presents a discussion of communications methods and technology as it relates to traffic management in order to provide transportation engineers a basic understanding that will aid them to work effectively with communications professionals.
