Project Goals and Objectives

The goals and objectives of the I-210 Pilot are summarized in the following table. In addition to improving corridor performance through enhanced system monitoring, agency collaboration, and the use of decision support tools, a key aspect of the project is to demonstrate the viability and effectiveness of ICM strategies and develop a roadmap for future system deployments in multiple corridor segments in California.s and funding for system expansion, deployment of new systems, or development of more advanced tools and capabilities



Collaboration: Bring together corridor stakeholders to create an environment for cooperation

  • Develop a collective understanding and acceptance among all participating agencies and stakeholders of the I-210 Pilot’s planning, development, and deployment
  • Foster positive, collaborative, and ongoing joint system management practices among participating agencies

Decision support: Develop and deploy an integrated, advanced decision support system for use by the stakeholders as they actively manage the corridor

  • Integrate planning processes and transportation management procedures used by state, regional, and local agencies
  • Develop and deploy tools supporting proactive system management
  • Develop an initial set of proactive system management protocols, standard operating procedures, and action plans

Metrics: Measure institutional and pilot performance outcomes and indicators to help inform future transportation performance-based decision-making

  • Develop a set of performance measures to quantify the successes and performance impacts of the I-210 Pilot and Connected Corridors program in general

Roadmap: Formulate a roadmap for the cost-effective implementation of future innovations

  • Develop a pilot system that can be replicated on other corridors and be a model for other corridors in the state and country
  • Use the project to demonstrate the effectiveness of ICM strategies
  • Develop lessons learned and best practices to guide the development and deployment of future ICM systems in California
  • Use demonstrated system effectiveness to secure commitments and funding for system expansion, deployment of new systems, or development of more advanced tools and capabilities

Performance: Improve corridor performance

  • Improve traveler information, mobility, and safety
  • Reduce congestion and increase freeway-arterial corridor performance
  • Encourage, facilitate, and incorporate transit and multimodal travel
