  • Description:
    The objective of this study was to determine the most effective way to mitigate the effect of freight

    crash incidents on Louisiana freeways. Candidate incident management strategies were reviewed from

    practice in other states and from those published in the literature. Current legislation in the state was

    also reviewed. A procedure to estimate the cost of delay caused by an incident was developed and used

    to provide a rough estimate of the cost efficiency of an Instant Tow Dispatch Program and an

    Expedited Towing Program. Both were estimated to be highly cost-efficient with the estimated cost of

    delay far exceeding the estimated cost of the programs. Implementation of an Instant Tow Dispatch

    program and an Authority Removal Law was recommended.
