MAG was awarded a federal grant from Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to conduct an ICM Development Planning Study along the I-10. This ICM Planning Study complements traffic signal timing and detour plans for I-10 west of downtown developed by MAG as part of the Traffic Signal Optimization Program. MAG and its regional partners have been involved with ICM initiatives for several years and have developed a cooperative environment that is engaged in ICM planning.
The I-10 Corridor is one of the most important routes in the Valley. Frequent accidents can cause significant delay during peak commuting periods. Closures on I-10 cause traffic diversions onto adjacent arterial streets which impact local agencies, passenger vehicles, transit and freight. Through the ICM Planning Grant, MAG and project partners including ADOT, MCDOT, the Cities of Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Valley Metro, and others, are working to develop an ICM strategy. Their goal is to reduce congestion on I-10 between Loop 101 in the West Valley and Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway in the East Valley. The outcomes of this study will be a series of documents that will guide the ICM partners towards the development of an ICM solution or set of solutions that can be implemented in the future.
The deliverables for the ICM Planning Study are the Project Management Plan (PMP), the Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP), the Concept of Operations (ConOps), and subsequent system requirements. MAG will be modeling the recommended ICM strategies from the Concept of Operations to identify high-impact strategies and potential benefits for the corridor.
The FHWA has piloted ICM strategies in San Diego, Dallas and Minneapolis.
This page will be updated with deliverables and other work products as the ICM study moves forward.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
