  • Abstract:
    Researchers created A Michigan Toolbox for Mitigating Traffic Congestion to be a useful desk reference for practitioners and an educational tool for elected officials acting through public policy boards to better understand the development, planning, and implementation of congestion mitigation strategies. The Toolbox provides an overview of traffic congestion, the need for local and state solutions, and project survey responses. Forty-seven specific strategies are presented in the Toolbox. Strategies are organized by transportation system management and travel demand management categories. For each strategy, a detailed review of its characteristics, costs, benefits, and Michigan experiences is given. To help create the Toolbox, researchers conducted an online survey of MPOs focusing on their experiences with mitigation strategies. MPO staff from Michigan transportation management areas was interviewed regarding the congestion management process in Michigan. Researchers identified available benefit-cost ratios for individual strategies in order to gauge their effectiveness. Local and regional transportation agencies can apply these strategies as appropriate to improve mobility and travel reliability throughout the State of Michigan.
