ITS Michigan Webinar - Work Zone Mobility
Thursday, September 17th, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Traffic congestion resulting from work zones causes negative impacts on traffic mobility (delay), the environment (vehicle emissions), and safety when stopped or slowed vehicles become vulnerable to rear-end collisions. Addressing these concerns, a data-driven approach was utilized to develop methodologies to measure, predict, and characterize the impact work zones have on Michigan interstates. This study used probe vehicle data, collected from GPS devices in vehicles, as the primary source for mobility data. This data was used to fulfill the following three objectives:
1. Develop a systematic approach to characterize work zone mobility
2. Predict the impact of future work zones
3. Develop a business intelligence support system to plan future work zones
Please join us in this webinar as we break down work zone mobility and the ability to predict future work zone impacts.
