Transportation Operations Manual Best Practices Guide

The Transportation Operations Manual (Manual) being developed under NCHRP Project 03-126, “Transportation Operations Manual” is nearing completion and should be published in 2022. To support the implementation of the Manual, this project would identify best practices for each of the Manual topics by organizing and identifying best practices found in existing case studies gathered by the National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE), from the AASHTO Committee on Transportation System Operations (CTSO) best practices webinar series, and other industry resources. The project will identify gaps between the existing body of knowledge already gathered by the NOCoE and the Manual’s chapters and fill those gaps through gathering additional case studies and best practices. The resulting product would be a digital best practices guide that would support the Manual chapters with practical real-world examples and best practices. The framework for the best practices guide should enable updates through the NOCoE’s ongoing work in gathering case studies and best practices. The objective of this research is to have a best practices guide that would support the Manual chapters with practical real-world examples and best practices. Potential tasks could include: (1) identifying and categorizing best practices found in the NOCoE Case Study Library; (2) identifying and categorizing best practices found in additional resources, including the CTSO Best Practices Webinar Series, resources in the NOCoE Knowledge Center, existing NCHRP research, and FHWA peer exchange and state-of-the-practice materials; (3) identifying gaps between the existing body of knowledge already gathered by the NOCoE and the Manual chapters and filling those gaps through gathering of additional case studies and best practices; and (4) establishing a framework for the best practices guide, including how best practices are categorized to support the implementation of the guide as well as how users will most effectively access the information.
