Abstract:

This research produced an automatic process to identify road condition recovery times during snow events from traffic-flow data. For this study, traffic data from past snow events were analyzed and speed variation patterns, indicating road condition recovery states during recovery periods, were identified. The prototype process developed in this study finds the speed change point indicating recovery of the road condition by analyzing the speed variations for a given location. The process was then applied to a set of past snow events and estimated recovered times were compared with reported lane-regain time data.
