The entry to a work zone is critical for traffic smoothness and safety because of the discontinuation of one or more lanes. The Indiana Lane Merge System (ILMS) was designed to implement dynamic lane change control at work zone entries by encouraging drivers to switch lanes well upstream of the discontinuous lane taper, thereby reducing the number of aggressive lane changes at the : Andrzej P.

Tarko, Shyam Venugopal. The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) wanted to do a complete safety and capacity evaluation of the system before implementing it statewide.

The safety of a system is usually evaluated by close examination prior to and following the installation of the system, i.e., before and after studies.

Safety and Capacity Evaluation of the Indiana Lane Merge System Introduction Construction and maintenance work zones have traditionally been hazardous locations within the highway environment.

Studies show that accident rates at locations with construction zones were higher than in the periods preceding the presence of work : Andrzej P.

Tarko, Shyam Venugopal. Author/Presenter: Tarko, A.; Kanipakapatnam, S.; Wasson, J. Abstract: Severe traffic turbulence on entry sections of freeway work zones increases the delays and risk of crash. A new Indiana Department of Transportation system called Indiana Merge Lane System (IMLS) creates a dynamic no passing zone on the approach to the freeway work zone through the sequence of DO NOT PASS signs.

A portable controller is the "brain" of the DMM-Tracs System to receive data from detectors, to process the data, and to control the merge metering signal via wireless communications.

The authors conclude that the late merge should be considered for 3-to-1 lane closure configurations but not until a sound methodology for deployment has been developed and tested in the field. For the 2-to-1 and 3-to-2 configurations, the late merge should be implemented only when the percentage of heavy vehicles is at least 20 percent.

The IDM and the Green Book have minimum requirements for structural capacity when an existing bridge is to remain in place. For bridge rehabilitation, use the live-load specified in original design, as a minimum.

Where the existing capacity is less than the minimum from the IDM or the Green Book, replacement should be evaluated or a design. 2-lane and 2-way on crossing road and one turn lane for each turn with or without channelization design on right turns The factors that affect the queue length were obtained in field observations using a remote wireless monitoring and recording system deployed at the study intersections.
