QuickZone Helps Estimate Work Zone Traffic DelayAbstract:
QuickZone can quantify corridor delay resulting from capacity decreases in work zones; it can identify the impact on delay of alternative construction phasing plans; and it supports trade-off analyses between construction costs and delay costs. QuickZone also considers alternative phasing schedules, such as locations, time-of-day, and season. It can assess the impact of delay-mitigation strategies, such as alternate routing, signal retiming, lane widening, and ramp metering. QuickZone even supports calculation of work-completion incentives.
