  • Abstract:
    This paper focuses on the proactive management of freeway facilities to balance the capacity of the transportation system and the prevailing demands and to respond to out-of-the-ordinary conditions (e.g., incidents, adverse weather, work zones, special events, and emergency evacuations). This paper will benefit all that are involved with highway traffic operations and freeway management, including State departments of transportation, tollway and toll authority traffic operations managers, and the people who directly support them. Specifically, this document summarizes the state-of-the-practice in freeway management and operations in order to provide a basis for recommending actions that will address gaps between the state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art. The paper will help those involved with the operation and management of highways by providing them with the opportunity to: determine if parts of their system can be considered state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice; develop ideas for what would be needed to move to state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice; and develop ideas of activities needed to close the gap between state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice nationally. This paper is interrelated to, and can be considered a companion document with, the new Freeway Management and Operations Handbook (FMOH). The FMOH is intended to be an introductory manual - a resource document that provides an overview of the various institutional and technical issues associated with the planning, design, operation, and management of a freeway network. It is intended to provide the user with a better understanding of the life-cycle considerations for the freeway network (in the context of the overall surface transportation network) and the associated freeway operations and management strategies, including intelligent transportation system components.
