Evaluation of Metro Freeway System for Reliability and Resilience

In the proposed study, TeTRES (Travel-time Reliability Estimation System) will be applied to estimate and analyze the reliability trends of individual corridors in the metro network. Further, a preliminary study to quantify the operational resiliency of freeway corridors, i.e., the potential capability to recover from extreme operating conditions and events, will be conducted. The results from this study can be directly applicable for prioritizing bottlenecks in the current metro network, so that limited resources for corridor improvements can be allocated in an optimal manner. Further, the reliability status/trends of individual corridors will be used for developing TSMO strategies for the metro freeway network.
