Localized congestion or bottleneck, “hot spots” occur in various locations along the roadway network. The most likely occurrences are at ramps, intersections, merges, etc. The congestion may be caused by several events including weather, work zones, and traffic signal timing. This course will focus on localized congestion and not any forces that would influence congestion along any other part of the transportation network.
This course will describe the unique challenges to localized congestion and how to overcome those challenges. There are several case studies that will aid the student in eliminating or mitigating challenges with localized congestion. This course material is based on the document “Overcoming unique challenges to localized congestion reduction - Requirements and Certification” as published on the website of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
