INTEGRATED MOTORIST INFORMATION SYSTEM (IMIS) FEASIBILITY AND DESIGN STUDY. PHASE II: GENERALIZED METHODOLOGY FOR IMIS FEASIBILITY STUDIES. VOLUME 2--VALIDATION AND APPLICATION OF FEASIBILITY STUDY HANDBOOK

Phase I of the IMIS project examined the feasibility of implementing an Integrated Motorist Information System in a corridor located in New York (northern Long Island). The results are documented in report numbers FHWA-RD-77-47, 48, and 49 Under Phase II of IMIS (the present phase) the methodology for performing an IMIS feasibility study was generalized and put into "Handbook" form for use by practicing traffic engineers. (The Handbook is printed as a separate document). This report reviews the Phase II activities and presents the results of applying the Handbook to a "test corridor" in California and the validation of the benefit assessment methodology. The application provides a complete example of an IMIS feasibility study and should therefore be of particular interest to Handbook users. /FHWA/
