As part of the transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) project, the Saxton Transportation Operations Laboratory (Saxton Lab) is working to improve the Traffic Incident Management Benefit-Cost (TIM-BC) tool and would like to get user feedback. This webinar will provide a quick overview of the TIM-BC tool developed through the FHWA’s Office of Operations Research and Development. The tool calculates program costs and benefits for a variety of TIM strategies including, but not limited to, safety service patrol, driver removal laws, and dispatch colocation. There will be opportunities for attendees to provide feedback on the existing tool and future improvements.
