Modeling was used to estimate the potential impacts of incorporating arterial traffic flow information into an Advanced Traveler Information System used to provide freeway traveler information.

FINDINGS

Researchers indicated the system would result in a 5.6 percent reduction in the number of stops experienced by travelers who used the system.

The Seattle metropolitan area had a considerably high level of ITS implementation prior to the MMDI projects, therefore the experiences of localities implementing these systems under differing conditions may vary significantly from those reported in Seattle.
