Built upon the existing capabilities of TRANSIMS, the modeling components will be used to suggest means to resolve congestion and secure emergency vehicles’ access during evacuation scenarios. Specifically they will:
- Generate evacuation routes;
- Restrict traffic from entering certain areas at different times of the day; and
- Impose other proactive traffic management actions such as rerouting and constraining the traffic flow.
