Contact: Michael D. Fontaine

Project No.: 00027
Target Date: 06/05/2014

Integrated corridor management (ICM) seeks to use all systems and resources in a corridor in an integrated fashion to optimize the movement of people and goods.  Experience has shown that ICM strategies must be tailored to the specific characteristics of a region and corridor. Thus, for Virginia, such strategies should be identified and developed based on the commonwealth’s unique institutional environment as well as its traffic and system characteristics.

This project aims to identify ICM strategies that are specifically applicable to corridors in Virginia, and to demonstrate their potential benefits through a prototype application in a simulation environment. The term “corridor” is used to refer to linear zones connecting major activity centers. Transportation corridors generally include multiple alternatives for travel through the zone, including limited-access facilities, signalized arterials and public transportation.
