TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT IN A DALLAS, TEXAS FREEWAY CORRIDOR

This report documents design, development, and testing of strategies for control of traffic within the North Central Expressway Corridor. A multilevel control strategy was developed for four primary elements of the study: Freeway, frontage roads, arterial streets, and driver information. A hardware system design was developed and a central computer and minicomputer system for corridor control was implemented. The control strategies for each of the four subsystems may act independently or may be linked together for integrated control. Evaluation results in operational and pilot subsystems are presented. In addition, the hardware system and software system designs are reviewed wit commentary on positive and negative aspects of each.
