Sante Fe, New Mexico
Santa Fe, NM experienced an increase in traffic congestion and accidents. Current traffic infrastructure is in need of improvement. This project inventoried traffic infrastructure around Santa Fe and investigated methods for calculating travel times through the city, with the goal of analyzing the implementation of an integrated traffic corridor. The project concluded that using INRIX data for travel times was reliable and that implementing an integrated traffic corridor in Santa Fe had a benefit-cost ratio of 75:1. Our results will provide accurate travel times to the public via dynamic message signs and potentially help the city of Santa Fe implement an integrated corridor in future years to help reduce traffic congestion and accidents.
