Corridor Management

Corridors bind our nation, our businesses, our people, our families together – it matters how we manage them!

In collaboration with NAS, Metro Analytics has an entire new set of interactive methods and tools for practitioners. The tools are part of a framework NCHRP will publish in 2022. These methods and tools will positively change the process of corridor management in the long-term!

NCHRP 20-124
Quantifying the Impacts of Corridor Management

What can you expect?

  • A corridor balance sheet for quantifying the value of a corridor
  • A practical guide to future proof a corridor
  • Pathways to durable coalitions
  • Tools to navigate big data for corridor management

New and Innovative Methods for Quantifying Corridor Management Impacts

TOSTADAA Geo-Database methodology and tool for assessing all of the infrastructure needs of a corridor across jurisdictions and programs through a shared data platform.
Master
Architecture
Assessment
A standard methodology for quantifying the capacity of a wider supporting grid/connectivity architecture of a corridor for future build-out to guide right of way preservation, partnerships with land-use agencies, and corridor projects.
7D Freight
Supply &
Demand
Assessment
A proposed process and methodology for utilizing widely available data, GIS tools, and performance methods to benchmark freight infrastructure supply and demand in inter-city or urban environments.
7D Built
Environment
A standard methodology for identifying the extent of a corridor’s influence on land-use, transit, built environment, and the efficiency of travel in affected
communities to define corridor management efforts.
Technology
Profiling
A practical self-assessment for corridor managers to assess the technology requirements and utilization of their corridor and set objectives for integrating emerging technologies.
Walkability
Profiling
A GIS-based standard methodology for quantifying and illustrating the sensitivity of the bicycle and pedestrian environment as affected by corridor
investments and associated land-use strategies, for both diagnostic and scenario planning purposes.
7D Scenario
Explorer
A regression-based calculator (derived from the University of Utah’s national data set) to quantify marginal effects that changes in land-use, infrastructure capacity, or other variables can have on traditional measures of corridor performance (speed, safety, VMT, and delay); for testing integrated land-use and transportation or transit scenarios.

How is this different from today’s approach?

  • Systems approach to planning
  • Nesting of intra- and inter-regional corridors to better understand interdependencies
  • Focus on building durable coalitions
  • Development of innovative tools and methods
  • Stakeholder engagement – context driven performance measures
