As part of a Federal initiative to advance the state of practice of Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) worked with local agencies to plan, develop, implement, and operate an ICM system on the I-15 corridor. The overall goal was to coordinate multi-agency and multi-modal operations, and maximize system capacity. Central to the deployment was a Decision Support System (DSS) designed to coordinate congestion response strategies and leverage use of traveler information systems, freeway ramp metering, arterial signal coordination, managed lanes, and incident management systems across jurisdictional boundaries.
Systems engineering was used to facilitate the deployment. Project documentation developed by SANDAG included a concept of operations (Conopts), project management plan (PMP), systems engineering management plan (SEMP), system requirements specification (SRS), system design documents (SDD), and testing documentation. At the conclusion of the project researchers highlighted lessons learned to assist other cities across the United States considering similar projects.
