A Final Report documenting the development of the work zone impact and strategy estimator, A User's Guide, and Software to analyze the impacts on road users of multiple, concurrent work zones across a network or complex corridor.
This tool will help agencies assess the optimal sequencing of renewal projects, and help determine the cost-effectiveness of strategies to minimize, manage, and mitigate road user costs from safety or operational perspectives.
The WISE software is fully developed and is being tested in Iowa and Arizona using historical data to validate its parameters. In addition, pilot tests in New York and Florida will use the software to analyze projects currently in the planning phase.

The report, users guide, and software are available at
