This study looks at the growing problem of urban highway congestion and highlights the strain it puts on the American worker and economy. The authors used three different road improvements, which were widening, surveillance and control, and low cost modifications. The authors then looked at how these improvements affected important transportation metrics such as re-occuring delay, fuel reduction, and excess fuel consumption due to incidents.
This study highlights different transportation policy choices and uses data from major urban centers to support policy changes and traffic management solutions. This article can help those looking to build support for investing in public infrastructure updates as a cost-saving mechanism.
