Abstract

The objective of this study is to develop a methodology for incident duration prediction. The authors first developed an understanding of factors that influence incident duration. A series of truncated regression models is used to predict incident duration. The models account for the fact that incident information at a Traffic Operations Center is acquired over the life of the incident. The implications of this simple methodology for incident duration prediction are discussed.
