This book addresses the modeling methodologies and operational
strategies for managing integrated diamond interchange
ramp-metering traffic control systems. Diamond interchanges and
their associated ramps are where the surface street arterial system
and the freeway system interface. Historically, these two elements
of the system have operated with little or no coordination between
the two. Therefore, there is a lack of both analysis tools and
operational strategies for considering them as an integrated
system. A model named DRIVE (Diamond Interchange and Ramp Metering
Integration Via Evaluation) was developed, which was characterized
as a mesoscopic simulation and analysis model. DRIVE incorporated
some enhanced modeling methodologies and can perform system
analysis in an integrated fashion given a set of system input
parameters and variables. System operational characteristics were
investigated using DRIVE to gain a better understanding of the
system features. Integrated control strategies were developed based
on commonly used phasing schemes for signalized diamond
