Road Ranger Program for Arterials

The objective of this project is to develop initial recommendations about a road ranger service for arterials in the Orlando area. Specifically, the study will determine whether service from staged locations or patrolling in beats (in a loop around the major arterials) would be appropriate. The study will also determine whether staged locations, if preferable, should be static or dynamic (i.e., staging locations vary over the time of the day and days of the week). The analysis will be based on data available (traffic crashes from police report, data from traffic incident management program, other data on traffic patterns such as from queues/congestion at intersections from Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures, ATSPM), contextual knowledge, and opportunities and constraints imposed by network and lane use conditions.
