Work Zone Analytics

For the past 3 years, Purdue University and the Indiana Department of transportation have been monitoring congestion and hard braking data across all 2600 miles of Indiana Interstates using connected vehicle data. Figure 1 illustrates one such report for I-465 that shows the impact of the 2021 construction activities on congestion. These reports have evolved over the past 3 years in Indiana and there is a need to develop a multi-state consensus on the most effective reports. This will provide a framework to formalize the reporting models, data reduction processes and decision making process so these techniques can be scaled to other states so they can pro-actively identify emerging safety concerns in their work zones, conduct effective after action reviews of past work zones, and ultimately identify best practices for future work zones that minimize congestion, hard braking and ultimately crashes.
