The Impact of Disruptions along the I-95 Corridor on Congestion and Air Quality - Phase 2

The resilience of a corridor can be defined as its ability to maintain its full functionality during an incident. While transportation corridors may be viewed as highly resilient due to the number of alternative paths that generally exist, the principal path and the alternatives may not have similar capacity. This research will evaluate resilience of the Interstate I-95 corridor in Delaware and the impact of disruptions on congestion and air quality. This work will build upon prior work that evaluated complete closures of specific sections of I-95. This work will look at partial closures where some lanes remain open and closures at interchanges where freeway and arterial lanes are blocked.
