    • Introduction

    • Why is Architecture Useful?

    • Overview of the National ITS Architecture Version 7.0

    • Overview of FHWA’s Use and Application of ITS Architecture Primer

    • Why is Architecture Required?

    • New Project Development Walk-Through

I 95 i 395 icm initiative key deliverables
I-95/I-395 ICM Initiative – Key Deliverables Update

  • Concept-of-Operations

  • ICM Architecture and Systems Engineering Management Plan

  • Deployment Plan w/Multimodal Works Packages (Corridor-wide and Segment-based)

  • ICM Partnership – Ideas for an Institutional Framework for ICM Implementation

I 95 i 395 icm project definition
I-95/I-395 ICM Project Definition Update

  • I-95 / I-395 ICM ConOps & Project Development Task began in October, 2011

  • Project Limits - Spotsylvania Interchange to 14th Street Bridge

  • Project Segments

    • I. US 1/17 to Rt 610 (MM126-144)

    • II. Rt 610 to I-495 (MM144-170)

    • III. I-495 to 14th St Br (I-395, MM0-8)

  • Develop ICM application strategies, and technology-based solutions

Icm application strategies
ICM Application Strategies Update

  • Success of ICM depends on

    • End-to-End Trip Making

    • Intra and Inter Modal Shifts

  • Transit/TDM Strategies are the Drivers

    • Intra Modal – SOV to HOV

    • Inter Modal – Highway to Bus, Rail

  • Enablers

    • Dynamic Ride Share,

    • Flex Hours/Telework

    • Ingress Opportunities – Real Time Travel Conditions, Parking

    • Information (P&R), Transit Info (Next Bus/Rail)/BRT

    • Last Mile Opportunities – Shuttle/Zip Car/Bike/Walk

Icm concept applications
ICM Concept Applications Update

  • Travel Time Information for All Travel Modes

    • Pre-trip and en-route travel time information for multiple travel modes along the corridor (95/395. HOT, US1, bus, train)

    • Delays, congestion, restrictions at bases / work locations

    • Personal trip planning tool (end-to-end, compare/mix travel modes)

    • Address road and transit options and available parking should transit, carpool or slugging option be considered by the traveler

  • Real-time Parking Management and Guidance

    • Park-and-ride space and guidance information (VDOT, VRE, WMATA parking facilities near I-95) for travelers entering the corridor via arterials,  where they may have two or more options relative to parking and either carpooling, slugging or using transit. 

    • Comparative travel time information for transit options (including next bus / train departure) would be presented along with parking space availability. 

Icm emphasis areas
ICM Emphasis Areas Update

  • Operations-Related Work Packages

    • Segment-based (but includes central hardware/software)

    • Infrastructure-oriented

    • En-route orientation

    • Benefits to various modes

    • TMP-related

  • Traveler Information-Related Work Packages

    • Corridor-wide

    • Build on 511 / current rideshare initiatives

    • Pre-trip orientation

    • Encourage mode shift, moves from SOV to HOV and transit

    • Entire investment could qualify as a TMP-related offset

  • Decision Support Performance Management Systems are future elements

Icm building blocks
ICM Building Blocks Update

ICM Infrastructure

ICM Traveler Information

ICM Decision Support












Trip Planning

Modeling and








Expanded Multi-Modal

& Parking Information

for 511



Integrated Single Info Gateway (including kiosks)

Existing Traffic Data

Existing Transit Data

I 95 i 395 icm initiative tdm is key
I-95/I-395 ICM Initiative – TDM is Key Update

  • Achieving the goals to increase dynamic rideshare, change

  • of mode and time of travel will be facilitated through

  • improved transparency of information provided:

    • Travel times for all modes

    • Real-time availability of parking spaces at existing parking areas

  • Better informed travelers will make better decisions on mode, time and route of travel

The target is to fill every empty seat across modes!

Icm initiative next steps
ICM Initiative - Next Steps Update

  • I-95/I-395 Project Specific

    • Develop an Implementation Plan (underway)

    • Develop Project Sets for specific applications (underway)

      • Examples – Enhanced Incident Management, Arterial Management, Ramp Metering, Parking Management, Traveler Information, etc.

    • Establish a ICM Working Group (to be initiated)

  • Establish ICM as Program

    • Development of an ICM Framework

    • Promote application of ICM on other congested corridors
