ITS evaluation framework-- phase 2 by Peter M Briglia ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
This report documents the results of applying a previously developed, standardized approach for evaluating advanced traveler information systems (ATIS) projects to a much more diverse group of 16 intelligent transportation systems (ITS) projects. The evaluation approach used structured interviews to investigate technical, management and organizational lessons learned. The approach appeared to work well with this diverse group of projects. This report also includes the individual evaluation reports for the 16 ITS projects that were evaluated. Each report includes a discussion on background information, project description, ITS architecture and standards, system usage and benefits and institutional and technical issues.

An evaluation of engineering treatments and pedestrian and motorist behavior on major arterials in Washington State by Katherine D Davis ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
This report examines pedestrian and motorist behavior on arterials in Washington State and determines how, if at all, these behaviors change when various engineering treatments are applied. The treatments that were examined included crosswalk markings, raised medians, in-pavement flashers, signage, stop bars, overhead lighting, and sidewalks. The relationships between pedestrian travel and transit use, origin-destination patterns, traffic signals, and schools were also explored. The study examined seven locations in the state of Washington. These were State Route (SR) 7 at South 180th Street in Spanaway, SR 99 at South 152nd Street in Shoreline, SR 99 at South 240th Street in Kent, SR 2 between South Lundstrom and King Streets in Airway Heights, SR 2 at Lacrosse Street in Spokane, SR 2 at Rowan Avenue in Spokane, and SR 2 at Wellesley Avenue in Spokane. Because pedestrian-vehicle collisions are rare when specific locations are studied, other criteria were used to evaluate the conditions and behaviors that were present. These included "conflicts" such as running behavior, motorists having to brake unexpectedly to avoid a pedestrian, pedestrians waiting in the center lane to cross, and more. These unreported, but very common, occurrences enabled the researchers to gain a better understanding of both pedestrian and motorist concerns and behaviors and the effects that improvements might have. The study concludes that the causes of conflicts are highly varied: ignorance of or noncompliance with the law (by the motorist or the pedestrian), inattention, vehicles following too closely, impatience, anxiety in attempting to catch a bus, use or non-use of pedestrian facilities, placement of features in the built environment, and more. While pedestrian/motorist interaction improves with improved visibility (something which can be obtained through better engineering design and the removal of visual clutter) better education and/or enforcement will also be needed to achieve significant safety benefits.

Measurement of recurring versus non-recurring congestion : technical report by Mark E Hallenbeck ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This report documents the technical results of a WSDOT-sponsored research effort to determine the nature and cause of congestion on Seattle-area freeways based on an analysis of available databases of traffic incidents and freeway performance. The focus of this effort was to develop a methodology for estimating freeway congestion as a function of its estimated cause (principally, its recurring or nonrecurring nature) by using readily available data, as well as to develop, implement, and use a prototype tool set that would apply that methodology. The resulting methodology and tool set produce estimates of congestion (delay) associated with recurring and non-recurring conditions as a function of various user-specified parameters and assumptions. The method is able to analyze Seattle area corridors using data from existing databases. The process makes extensive use of the TRAC-FLOW analysis process, as well as supplementary prototype tools.

Measurement of recurring versus non-recurring congestion by Mark E Hallenbeck ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
A research effort was initiated to develop and test a methodology to estimate the extent to which urban congestion is produced by the routine presence of large numbers of vehicles on a facility (so-called recurring congestion) versus unexpected disruptions or other events (non-recurring congestion), particularly lane blocking incidents. An analysis was performed using a preliminary methodology to estimate the magnitude, extent, and relative causes of congestion on urban freeways in the central Puget Sound region of Washington State. This information is designed to assist transportation agencies in 1) selecting the most appropriate strategies to improve freeway operations, and 2) allocating available resources to achieve those improvements. This paper documents the preliminary methodology and results from this ongoing research project.
Quantifying incident-induced travel delays on freeways using traffic sensor data by Yinhai Wang ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Traffic congestion is a major operational problem for freeways in Washington State. Recent studies have estimated that more than 50 percent of freeway congestion is caused by traffic incidents. To help the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) identify effective countermeasures against such congestion-inducing incidents, a thorough understanding of travel delays caused by incidents is essential. By using traffic data extracted from archived loop detector measurements and incident log data recorded by the WSDOT Incident Response (IR) team, this research project developed a new algorithm for quantifying travel delays produced by different incident categories. The algorithm applies a modified deterministic queuing theory to estimate incident-induced delay by using 1-minute aggregated loop detector data. Incident-induced delay refers to the difference between the total delay and the recurrent travel delay at the time and location influenced by the incident. The uniqueness of the delay calculation in this study is the use of a dynamic traffic-volume-based background profile, which is considered a more accurate representation of prevailing traffic conditions. According to the test results, the proposed algorithm can provide good estimates for incident-induced delay and capture the evolution of freeway traffic flow during incident duration. Because actual traffic data measured by loop detectors were used in this study to compute vehicle arrival and departure rates for delay calculations, the estimated incident-induced delay should be very close to the reality. Additionally, the proposed algorithm was implemented in the Advanced Roadway Incident Analyzer (ARIA) system. ARIA is a database-driven computer system that automates all the computational processes. More accurate incident delay information will help WSDOT improve its understanding of congestion-inducing incidents and select more effective countermeasures against incident-related traffic congestion on freeways.
