SPR-4738: Origin-Destination Counts in Weaving Area Utilizing Existing Field Data

Vehicle weaving describes the trajectories of vehicles that change lanes in areas between ramp merge and diverge junctions. Especially during heavy traffic, vehicle weaving will slow traffic, cause congestion, and cause a higher possibility of crashes. The primary goal of this proposed research is to develop an efficient and effective method to quantitatively determine the vehicle weaving at specific highway locations using CCTV cameras. The outcome of this research will provide INDOT with an effective tool to improve the design of vehicle weaving areas for reduced traffic congestion and enhanced safety.
