Arterial Traffic Incident Management

When: Tuesday, October 13, 2020 -- 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This webinar was developed by the ITE TSMO Council.

Webinar Description:

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) for freeways and other limited access facilities has long been a proven tool for reducing secondary crashes, providing a higher level of safety to first responders, and for improving the time needed to clear a roadway and restore normal traffic flow. However, arterial TIM applications have not historically been used, for a variety of reasons, including generally lower volumes, the availability of alternate routes, and lack of video and other instrumentation coverage along the corridors. As there appears to be a growing interest in providing TIM services along arterials, and with the limited information available on how best to implement arterial TIM.

This webinar will highlight successful programs, showcase great case studies on existing arterial TIM strategies, by highlighting innovations in technology implementations. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from practitioners in private company, local and federal government agencies about their experiences with arterial TIM.
