Mitigating congestion at urban traffic system intersections following major hazards and incidents is a crucial step to maximize the evacuation, rescue and recovery efficiency and prevent a hazard from turning into a disaster. An optimized traffic signal design strategy can effectively contribute to maintaining...

 

This report presents an analysis of freeway incidents on the Salt Lake Valley freeway network. Different types of incidents at the most common/difficult locations are analyzed through traffic microsimulation using VISSIM simulation software. The analysis focuses on incident induced freeway delays, but...

This report presents an overview of the PTV TrafficPlatform software, which is designed as a tool to help in the training process of traffic operations center (TOC) operators. TrafficPlatform is based on an integration of VISSIM microsimulation, VISUM macrosimulation, SQL database, and a user-friendly...

 

For the purpose of this paper, the definition of traffic incident is "any non-recurring event that causes a reduction of roadway capacity or an abnormal increase in demand." This definition will provide the necessary broadness for types of traffic incidents that are going to be addressed here and for...

 

This paper is a summary of work performed by the Utah Traffic Lab (UTL) to develop training programs for the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Traffic Operations Center (TOC) operators at both the basic and advanced levels. The basic training is designed to train operators in the basic knowledge...

 
Adaptive Signal Control II (Jan 2003, MPC-03-141)

Increasing traffic congestion is a constant source of frustration, time loss, and expense to users and managers of transportation systems. Cities, counties, and state transportation agencies are persistently searching for ways to mitigate urban traffic congestion, while minimizing costs and maintenance...
