Connected Corridors I-210 Pilot Project City of Pasadena City Council May 5, 2014 E/B Rte 210 / Metro Track Incident April 21, 2014 2 Current Road Network Operations 3 Transportation Infrastructure Not Fully Utilized With teamwork more can be accomplished. Traveler Information Needs Upgrading Traffic information is can be fragmented, not very timely or not available at all when you need it most. Networks Are Independently Operated Previous efforts to "reduce congestion“ have focused on improving individual networks. Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) 4 ICM is an approach to improve mobility by integrating various networks together, so that partner agencies can manage the transportation corridor as a unified multi-modal system. I-210 “Connected Corridor” Project Limits 5 I-210 is a multimodal corridor ideal for ICM implementation Phase 1 Gladstone St Longden Ave Arrow Hwy Arrow Hwy Las Tunas Dr Azusa Ave Sierra Madre Blvd San Dimas Canyon Rd San Dimas Ave Route 66 / Alosta Ave Arroyo Pkwy Amelia Ave Lone Hill Ave Foothill Blvd Green St Union St Rosemead Blvd Pasadena Ave Freeway Interchange Grand Ave St John Ave Citrus Ave Walnut St Del Mar Blvd Not to scale Arterial Irwindale Ave Orange Grove Blvd Freeway N Mountain Ave Colorado Blvd Colorado St Colorado Pl Buena Vista St Michililinda Ave Sierra Madre Villa Ave Altadena Ave San Gabriel Blvd Allen Ave Hill Ave Phase I (from SR-134 to I-605 IC) Myrtle Ave Maple St Corson St Los Robles Fair Oaks Ave Marengo Ave Lake Ave Major Incidents on I-210 (2009 to 2012) 6 6.8 5.6 5.0 3.7 2.9 2.8 1.2 13.3 5.9 3.8 11.2 2.9 9.5 3.1 3.2 3.6 3.3 0.8 2.4 15.7 6.7 3.8 2.8 1.9 1.2 5.9 8.2 3.9 8.5 2.9 2.6 4.5 4.9 9.7 5.0 2.5 9.4 8.5 3.2 13.9 3.8 2.5 1.5 In 2013 a total of about 6,000 incidents were reported within the project limits.

Allow for proactive, joint, multimodal management of assets. Freeway – Arterial – Transit – Parking Be working together get the most out of our existing systems. Benefits to the City of Pasadena Move traffic more efficiently. Help traffic that gets off the freeway get around the accident/incident easier. Coordinate Caltrans on-ramps and city arterial signals to keep everybody moving. Other ICM Efforts (United States) 10 Agencies across the country are embracing the ICM approach.

The I-210 “Connected Corridors Pilot” is the first Caltrans-led ICM effort in California. The I-210 Connected Corridor” pilot beginning in the City of Pasadena will be the first corridor site in the “ICM California” plan. The plan calls for 50 corridors in California over the next ten years.
