Using Advanced Traveler Information Services to Reduce Recurring Congestion during Reconstruction of I-64 in St. Louis, Missouri

This paper presents a case study of a comprehensive, innovative approach used by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), through its traveler information partnership with NAVTEQ/Nokia and its NAVTEQ Traffic.com™ solutions, to use advanced traveler information services to reduce recurring congestion caused by the closure of I-64 in St. Louis, Missouri in the United States. The innovative approach included installing additional traffic sensors to increase real-time data, using probe data to provide additional coverage, staffing the NAVTEQ Traffic operations centers 24/7, placing NAVTEQ Traffic staff in the MoDOT Gateway Guide operations center, providing NAVTEQ Traffic.com511™ (ATIS) services by phone, web and email, and disseminating NAVTEQ Traffic to XM satellite radio, local TV and radio stations.
