1 The I-80 Integrated Corridor Mobility (ICM) Project ITE San Francisco Bay Area Section Presented by Randy Durrenberger February 21, 2013

2 Presentation Outline Introduction / Background Project Element Strategy Video Operations and Delivery Strategy Current Status

3 Project Location I-80 and San Pablo Avenue (SR 123) San Pablo Ave. I-80 Mainline

4 Why the I-80 Corridor? Ranked as one of the most congested corridors in the region, approximately 300,000 vehicles per day Over 20,000 vehicle-hours of delay per day Inconsistent level of service (C to F) Variable speeds (stop & go to 65 mph) Un-reliability of travel (20 to >60 min) High incident rates: over 2,000 incidents annually

5 Recurring Congestion & Loss of Capacity

6 Accident Profile Westbound (Average of one accident per day during peak hour)

7 Project Stakeholders Alameda County Transportation Commission Contra Costa Transportation Authority West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Committee California Department Of Transportation Metropolitan Transportation Commission California Highway Patrol Federal Highway Administration Federal Transit Administration AC Transit Western Contra Costa Transit Authority Water Emergency Transportation Authority BART Amtrak Contra Costa County City of Albany City of Berkeley City of Emeryville City of El Cerrito City of Hercules City of Pinole City of Richmond City of Oakland City of San Pablo

12 System Integration

13 High-Level Integration Approach Integrate agency subsystems Utilize existing networks Integrate traffic incident management responsibilities

14 Incident Response Strategies Arterials Trailblazer Signs Incident Timing Plans CCTV Cameras

15 Incident Response Strategies Freeways Lane Use Signs CMS/VMS VASS Ramp Meters Detection / CCTV Cameras

16 Key Incident Management Concepts No active direction for drivers to use alternate routes Caltrans will control local traffic signals during incidents using pre-approved timing plans Caltrans wants an EASY button Provide notification to all agencies when strategies are deployed Post-incident debrief All stakeholders have signed MOU

17 Delivery Strategy Procurement Package Freeway Construction Projects Arterial Construction Projects System Integration PROJECT 1: System Integration DEFERRED

18 Current Status Project 1 System Integration: Ongoing Project 2 Material Procurement: Evaluating Material Submittals Project 3 Traffic Operations System: Construction Complete Project 4 Adaptive Ramp Metering: Under Construction Project 5 Active Traffic Management: Under Construction Project 6 San Pablo Arterial & Transit: Construction Complete in April 2013
