SHRP2 Work Zone Impacts and Strategies Estimator (WISE) (R11) Project

This project is based on funds provided to the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) for the SHRP2 Implementation Assistance Program to pilot the use of the Work Zone Impacts and Strategies Estimator (WISE) Software (R11). In this project the WISE software will be applied to data coming from the National Capitol Region (NCR) and will be documented how its application improves work zone management and thereby reduces delays.

Overall framework of the procedure proposed by University of Maryland is shown in the following Figure.

It uses DTALite and also incorporates the WISE optimization methodology. In this proposed procedure traffic congestion is calculated via agent-based model (AgBM) and dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) model.
