Roles of Transportation Management Centers in Incident Management on Managed Lanes

This guidebook examines traffic incident management practices that are implemented by transportation management centers on managed lanes. The document examines the unique operating environment of managed lanes from an incident management perspective. The roles of the transportation management center in the managed lane environment are discussed in terms of incident preparedness and real-time incident management activities and support. A comparison of best practices for eight case studies is presented, and an in-depth analysis of the role of the transportation management center in incident management is presented for three of the managed lane facilities examined in the case studies.

Congestion Pricing Webinar: Synergies Among Congestion Pricing, Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM), and Other Market Based Strategies

Transportation agencies across the U.S. have implemented managed lane projects and successfully combined congestion pricing with various ATDM strategies. The positive impacts on congestion management and safety of these combined strategies can exceed those of separate strategies. This webinar will focus on synergies between congestion pricing and Active Demand Management (ADM), Active Traffic Management (ATM), Integrated Corridor Management (ICM), and Dynamic Ridesharing on implemented projects.

Ramp Metering: A Proven, Effective Strategy - An Informational Brief

This Informational Brief highlights ramp metering as a proven, effective strategy for reducing congestion and improving safety. The Brief covers at a high-level the benefits of ramp metering, status of ramp metering deployment in the U.S., keys for successful deployment and operation, and resources for more information. This Brief is a companion to the Ramp Metering Primer, which covers much of the same information as the Brief but in more detail.

Ramp Metering: A Proven, Cost-Effective Operational Strategy—A Primer

This primer poses ramp metering as a potential tool to address commonly occurring congestion and safety issues. Despite initial opposition and skepticism from various stakeholders, ramp metering has been deployed, sustained, and even expanded in many regions. This primer incorporates recent research on challenges agencies experience during their attempts to deploy or expand ramp metering in their regions.

National Operations Center for Excellence Is Established

The National Operations Center for Excellence (NOCoE) has been launched! NOCoE ( will serve as a single point-of-contact for transportation systems management and operations practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to provide the access for relevant knowledge, promote best practices, support capacity building, and promote peer-to-peer interchanges. While several hundred resources have been loaded to the NOCoE website already, many more will be loaded over the next couple of months to complete the initial populating of the site, with consistent content updates ongoing thereafter. NOCoE will be operated jointly by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Institute for Transportation Engineers, and ITS America through a Memorandum of Understanding, with support from the Federal Highway Administration.
