Integrated Corridor ManagementInitiative Overview

Brian Cronin

Congestion Program Manager

ITS Joint Program Office

  • Currently surface transportation systems are made up of several independent networks
    • Freeways, including managed lanes
    • Arterials
    • Bus Routes
    • Rail Transit
  • Efforts to date to “reduce congestion” have focused on optimization of individual networks
  • These adjacent network links overlay to form transportation corridors
    • Metropolitan areas contain several major corridors
  • Corridors offer an opportunity to operate and optimize the entire system as opposed to the individual networks
missing integration
Missing Integration
  • Technical Integration
    • Lack of cross network device-to-device data, communication, and procedure integration
  • Operational Integration
    • Lack of integrated cross network operational strategies and analysis capabilities
  • Institutional Integration
    • Lack of operational capability and technology that supports cross network distribution of responsibilities and sharing of control
integrated corridor management icm
Integrated Corridor Management(ICM)
  • Goal of Initiative
    • to provide the institutional guidance, operational capabilities, and ITS technical methods needed for effective Integrated Corridor Management Systems.
  • Purpose
    • To demonstrate that ITS technologies can be used to efficiently and proactively manage the movement of people and goods in major transportation corridors by facilitating integration of the management of all the networks in a corridor.
  • Future State
    • Widespread use of integrated corridor management tools and strategies to improve mobility through integrated management of transportation assets.
phase 1 foundational research
Phase 1 – Foundational Research
  • Goal – Develop an understanding of the operational, technical, and institutional integration issues associated with deploying integrated corridor management and ICM systems.
    • Background and Basic Concepts
      • Definitions, corridor types, operational experience, cross-network management approaches & strategies, funding strategies
    • ICM Concept of Operations for Generic Corridor
      • Formal document providing a user-oriented description of ICM operations and systems
    • ICM Planning & Implementation Guidance
      • Process steps needed to support development & deployment of ICM and integrated corridor management systems
    • Development Feasibility
what are the issues
What are the issues?
  • Operational
    • Impact of the various ICM strategies (Simulation / analysis tools – “corridor analysis”)
    • Network Shift philosophy (“inform” vs. pro-active “instruct”)
    • Balancing needs of corridor (Local traffic vis-à-vis through traffic)
    • ICM performance measures (Combining roadway & transit)
  • Technical
    • Communications links between networks
    • Standards & network system interfaces
    • Data reliability
    • Corridor surveillance (including cross – network linkages and junctions)
  • Institutional
    • Involvement of all APPROPRIATE stakeholders
    • Buy – in from decision makers / executives
    • Buy – in from network operators
    • Common language and common performance measures
next steps
Next Steps
  • Development Phase (Phase 2)
    • Develop corridor analysis tools
    • Refine and identify ICM strategies
    • Develop common performance measures
    • Develop standards to support technical integration
    • Identify ways to distribute responsibility and share control
next steps1
Next Steps
  • Field Test Phase (Phase 3)
    • Stage 1
      • Issue Request for Applications through
      • Select Pioneer Sites; develop corridor concepts of operations & functional requirements
    • Stage 2
      • Select sample corridors and strategies
      • Conduct corridor analysis and evaluation
    • Stage 3
      • Select sites for ICM Demonstrations
      • Implement ICMS and Evaluate
