Background

Since the current TIM Handbook was published in 2000, the National Incident Management System (NIMS) has been created, The National Traffic Incident Management Coalition has come into existence and the NTIMC has adopted a National Unified Goal (NUG) for Responder Safety, Safe, Quick Clearance, and Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications among responding partners. In addition, the USDOT has initiated a ¿National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America¿s Transportation System¿ that contains four elements strongly aligned with the NUG. Advances in institutional, operational and technical practices also need to be included in the revised Handbook.

Objectives

To revise the FHWA Traffic Incident Management Handbook (November 2000)

Scope of Work

This study will develop a new Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Handbook incorporating still useful and relevant information from the 2000 Handbook but adding new information and reformatting the Handbook in the three-tier structure of TIM (Strategic and Programmatic, Operational, and Technical) within a framework of the National Incident Management System (NIMS, Department of Homeland Security) to make the handbook relevant to both transportation and public safety agencies as well as private sector partners.

Comments

The proposed handbook revision has also been endorsed by the TRB Freeway Operations Committee. Members of the national Traffic Incident Management Coalition have expressed interest to provide input and review.
