Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) provides transportation management and operations strategies enabled by intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to optimize the use of existing infrastructure in a selected corridor network, while enhancing safety and reducing the negative externalities associated with congestion. As part of a planning study for the Buffalo-Niagara Integrated Corridor Management (BNICM) deployment, analysts implemented a microscopic-mesoscopic simulation model to evaluate ITS technologies and strategies along key freeway corridors. The microscopic model simulated individual vehicle characteristics and interactions, and the mesoscopic simulation provided operational information at an aggregate or regional level.
