Best Practices and Guidelines for Active Traffic Management - A UTCM Webinar

posted Dec 19, 2011, 10:01 AM by Beverly Kuhn   [ updated Dec 19, 2011, 10:02 AM ]

Focusing on trip reliability, active traffic management (ATM) - widely deployed for decades in Europe but in its early stages in the United States - maximizes the effectiveness and efficiency of the facility, and increases throughput and safety through integrated systems with new technology, including the automation of dynamic deployment to optimize performance quickly.  This congestion management approach consists of a combination of strategies that, when implemented in concert, fully optimize the existing infrastructure and provide measurable benefits to the transportation network and the motoring public.  These strategies include:

  • speed harmonization,
  • temporary shoulder use,
  • junction control, and
  • dynamic signing and re-routing.

This webinar provided participants with information on best practices for deployment and operation of ATM strategies that can help a positive impact on transportation networks where ATM is deployed.  The webinar provided an overview of ATM, information on operational strategies and examples, and general guidelines on their deployment.
