USDOT Decision Support Systems for Integrated Corridor Management Webinar

Date: Thursday, April 23, 2015
Time: 1:00PM to 2:30PM
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) program seeks to support the optimization of existing infrastructure assets along our nation’s urban corridors. ICM can be thought of as a “system of systems” approach to managing the multiple, overlapping transportation networks that make up a transportation corridor. Because of the need to assess a large number of traffic situations and coordinate operational strategies across modal, institutional, and jurisdictional boundaries, a decision support system (DSS) that can assist operators with the prediction and evaluation of complex traffic interactions, as well as with the coordination and selection of appropriate response strategies, is considered to be a fundamental requirement of an ICM system. To this end, U.S. DOT funded ICM pilot sites in Dallas, TX and San Diego, CA to demonstrate the potential benefits of DSS-driven ICM.
