This study presents a real-time crash prediction model and uses this model to investigate the effect of the local traffic-responsive ramp metering strategy on freeway safety. Safety benefits of ramp metering are quantified in terms of the reduced crash potential estimated by the real-time crash prediction model.
Improving Freeway Operations Using Real-Time Adaptive Ramp Meters - A Case Study for I-680 Southbound Corridor in Alameda County, California. Ramp metering has the potential to improve the operation of congested freeway facilities.
Author(s): Cassidy, Michael J.; Rudjanakanoknad, Jittichai | Abstract: Traffic data measured near the junction of a single-lane on-ramp (with metered inflows) and a three-lane freeway were carefully studied for four days during the rush. The data showed the area around this merge junction became a bottleneck each day when the on-ramp's meter allowed its inflows to rise in the presence of high ...
