Research Needs for Weather-Responsive Traffic Management
Weather-responsive traffic management views weather events as non-recurring incidents that can be predicted, observed, and mitigated. This paper reports weather impacts on traffic flow and describes an emerging concept of operations for a system-wide approach to traffic management in adverse weather. The paper discusses this structured approach to assess weather impacts and implement operational strategies that improve safety, mobility, and productivity. Finally, research needs to advance the state-of-the-practice in weather-responsive traffic management are enumerated.
