Caltrans Adds Intelligence with the I-80 Integrated Mobility (ICM) Project
The Interstate 80 Integrated Corridor Mobility (ICM) project will bring innovative congestion relief and safety improvements to the I-80 corridor from the Carquinez Bridge to the Bay Bridge. The project is expected to reduce the impacts of both commute and incident-related congestion on the freeway, including long delays and stop-and-go traffic, congestion-related traffic collisions, long emergency response times, unreliable commute times, and cut-through traffic. Project improvements include adaptive ramp metering; high occupancy vehicle (HOV) bypass lanes at ramp meters; active management of traffic during freeway incidents using variable advisory speed limits and lane management on the freeway and coordinated traffic signal timing on the local streets; bus priority at traffic signals and ramp meters; enhanced traveler information; and the coordinated operation of all of these components.
