Description

The Transportation field is moving forward with an Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) approach whose aim is to manage the highway corridors as a multimodal system, and allows professionals to introduce operational decisions for the benefit of the corridor as a whole. Through this approach, travelers will be able to make educated decisions in choosing their method and route of travel, allowing highway corridors to realize significant improvements in the efficient movement of people and goods.

Border crossing locations are receiving attention from various stakeholders and partnerships, and substantial funding is being provided with the aim of implementing an Integrated Corridor Management approach at borders. The efficient flow of border access points are of particular importance to the economies of adjacent countries as it is the entry point of commuters, travelers, and commercial trade between countries.

Current technology being utilized involves the use of Bluetooth readers and vehicle detectors, which help determine service flow rates, cars in queue, and wait time information. With this technology however, there are often long waits, heavy congestion, unpredictable crossing times, and an imbalance between different crossing locations, negatively affecting the environment, quality of life, and economic competiveness.

These problems often arise due to a lack of information for commuters, capacity constraints, and limited crossing options, all which can be mitigated through an Integrated Corridor Management approach.

An Integrated Corridor Management approach will eventually be implemented at borders, which will include policies and procedures to address recurring and nonrecurring congestion, utilizing advanced modeling, and a data-driven decision support tool to provide relevant information to travelers. When properly implemented, these methods combined with continuous performance monitoring will allow the flow of commuters, travelers, and commercial trade through borders to be seamless and efficient.
