Maricopa Association of Governments is undertaking the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Deployment Planning Study for the I-10 Corridor through the Phoenix metropolitan area. 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. With many ICM-related regional initiatives already underway, MAG applied for, and 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.
The I-10 corridor represents one of the most significant regional and national routes in the Valley. Incidents are frequent and can cause significant delay during peak periods. Closures on I-10 will 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 City of Phoenix, the City of Tempe, the City of Chandler, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Valley Metro, and others, are working to develop an ICM strategy to help promote operational approaches and partnerships to improve throughput and reduce congestion along I-10 between the Loop 101 in the West Valley to the Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway in the East Valley. The outcomes of this study will be a series of documents that eventually guide the ICM partners towards the development of an ultimate 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.
