Project Definition

The general objective of the I-210 Pilot project is to reduce congestion and improve mobility in a section of the I-210 corridor in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County. This objective will be achieved by coordinating the principal elements in the corridor—the I-210 freeway, key surrounding arterials, supporting local transit services, and other relevant transportation systems—and managing them as an integrated and cohesive whole. To attain these operational improvements, the project team will design, develop, implement, and evaluate a pilot Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) system that will help transportation system managers in their decision-making tasks and enable operators, control systems, vehicles, and travelers to work together in a productive and coordinated way.

Specifically, the system is intended to:

  • Improve real-time monitoring of travel conditions within the corridor
  • Enable operators to better characterize travel patterns within the corridor and across systems
  • Provide predictive traffic and system performance capabilities
  • Evaluate alternative system management strategies and recommend desired courses of action in response to planned events, unscheduled events, and incidents
  • Improve decision-making by transportation system managers
  • Improve collaboration among agencies operating transportation systems within the corridor
  • Improve the utilization of existing infrastructures and systems
  • More efficiently use spare capacity to address non-recurring congestion
  • Reduce delays and travel times along freeways and arterials
  • Improve travel time reliability
  • Help reduce the number of accidents occurring along the corridor
  • Reduce the period during which the congestion resulting from an incident or event affects corridor operations
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Generate higher traveler satisfaction rates
  • Increase the overall livability of communities in and around the I-210 corridor
