Evaluation of Detour System for I-15 Freeway North Reconstruction Design Build Project

The main goal of this project is to create strategies for traffic control and management of urban construction. The primary research objectives are to analyze data collected by FAST for the various detour strategies, compare simulation results with actual data, and develop guidelines for future major urban freeway detours. These guidelines are critical because over the next decade several major freeway reconstruction projects are planned in Nevada. This research will prepare working papers for each task for review by a research panel. The Panel will consist of personnel from FAST and affected Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) Divisions that will meet quarterly or as needed. The finalized working papers will constitute chapters in the final report.
