NATIONAL COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM Systematic, well-designed, and implementable research is the most effective way to solve many problems facing state departments of transportation (DOTs) administrators and engineers. Often, highway problems are of local or regional interest and can best be studied by state DOTs individually or in cooperation with their state universities and others. However, the accelerating growth of highway transporta- tion results in increasingly complex problems of wide interest to high- way authorities. These problems are best studied through a coordinated program of cooperative research. Recognizing this need, the leadership of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in 1962 ini- tiated an objective national highway research program using modern scientific techniquesâthe National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP). NCHRP is supported on a continuing basis by funds from participating member states of AASHTO and receives the full cooperation and support of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), United States Department of Transportation, under Agree- ment No. 693JJ31950003. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine was requested by AASHTO to administer the research program because of TRBâs recognized objectivity and understanding of modern research practices. TRB is uniquely suited for this purpose for many reasons: TRB maintains an extensive com- mittee structure from which authorities on any highway transportation subject may be drawn; TRB possesses avenues of communications and cooperation with federal, state, and local governmental agencies, univer- sities, and industry; TRBâs relationship to the National Academies is an insurance of objectivity; and TRB maintains a full-time staff of special- ists in highway transportation matters to bring the findings of research directly to those in a position to use them. The program is developed on the basis of research needs iden- tified by chief administrators and other staff of the highway and transportation departments, by committees of AASHTO, and by the FHWA. Topics of the highest merit are selected by the AASHTO Special Committee on Research and Innovation (R&I), and each year R&Iâs recommendations are proposed to the AASHTO Board of Direc- tors and the National Academies. Research projects to address these topics are defined by NCHRP, and qualified research agencies are selected from submitted proposals. Administration and surveillance of research contracts are the responsibilities of the National Academies and TRB. The needs for highway research are many, and NCHRP can make significant contributions to solving highway transportation problems of mutual concern to many responsible groups. The program, however, is intended to complement, rather than to substitute for or duplicate, other highway research programs.

The National Academy of Sciences was established in 1863 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Lincoln, as a private, non- governmental institution to advise the nation on issues related to science and technology. Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research. Dr. Marcia McNutt is president. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to bring the practices of engineering to advising the nation. Members are elected by their peers for extraordinary contributions to engineering. Dr. John L. Anderson is president. The National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) was established in 1970 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to advise the nation on medical and health issues. Members are elected by their peers for distinguished contributions to medicine and health. Dr. Victor J. Dzau is president. The three Academies work together as the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. The National Academies also encourage education and research, recognize outstanding contributions to knowledge, and increase public understanding in matters of science, engineering, and medicine. Learn more about the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine at www.nationalacademies.org. The Transportation Research Board is one of seven major programs of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The mission of the Transportation Research Board is to provide leadership in transportation improvements and innovation through trusted, timely, impartial, and evidence-based information exchange, research, and advice regarding all modes of transportation. The Boardâs varied activities annually engage about 8,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest. The program is supported by state transportation departments, federal agencies including the component administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other organizations and individuals interested in the development of transportation.

The purpose of this project was to develop guidance for transportation decisionmakers to incorporate freight, transit, incident response, and non-motorized stakeholders into the ICM process. This report was prepared by Cambridge System- atics, Inc., and Noblis under the guidance of an NCHRP panel. The members of the project team included the following: Vassili Alexiadis, Cambridge Systematics (Principal Investigator); Alice Chu, Cambridge System- atics; Ron Basile, Cambridge Systematics; Karl Wunderlich, Noblis; and Shelley Row, Shelley Row Associates, LLC.

NCHRP Research Report 899 addresses a broad range of operational and efficiency issues that are critical to bringing non-traditional (freight, transit, incident response, and non- motorized) stakeholders into the integrated corridor management (ICM) process. The guidance is based on documented lessons-learned from agencies that have implemented ICM, and includes institutional, technical, and organizational approaches such as: coop- erative procedures and agreements, operational constraints and opportunities, potential ICM strategies, evaluation methodologies, and performance measures related to success- fully incorporating freight, transit, incident response, and non-motorized transportation into ICM. ICM is a relatively new congestion management approach that has been gaining interest for its potential to mitigate congestion with few changes to the existing transportation infra- structure. The primary objective of any ICM system is to coordinate the assets and expertise of multiple stakeholders rather than have each one respond to related issues independently. By integrating the management and operations of the corridor system, the complete corridor infrastructure may be better utilized, thus resulting in improved travel conditions in the target network. Under NCHRP Project 03-121, Cambridge Systematics was asked to develop guidance for transportation decisionmakers to incorporate freight, transit, incident response, and non-motorized stakeholders into the ICM process. Conversely, the guidance is intended to inform the stakeholders from freight, transit, incident management, and non-motorized roadway user groups of the benefits they can expect to realize from greater integration with ICM. The guidance provides resources to (1) equip transportation decisionmakers with a systematic approach to engaging non-traditional stakeholder groups in ICM planning; (2) give transportation decisionmakers the tools to present a strong case to management on why to involve non-traditional stakeholder groups; and (3) provide transportation decisionmakers with insights on the objectives and needs of each non-traditional stake- holder group to develop win-win scenarios to engage non-traditional stakeholder groups to come on board the ICM planning process.
