The City of Ottawa’s Rail Construction Program (RCP) Traffic & Transit Management department was looking for a way to actively measure and manage traffic congestion from the City’s Stage 2 Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project but recognized the limitations of the traditional method of purchasing or leasing hardware sensors to collect the travel time data. In addition, the City was looking for a way to better quantify their current pre-construction travel times across key corridors, for the purpose of establishing baselines to measure against over the course of construction.
Join us to explore the results of a pilot project developed between UrbanLogiq and the City of Ottawa's RCP to understand the impacts of long-term construction on the surrounding urban environment, specifically vehicular travel times. Speakers will highlight the goals set out by the RCP, detailing how their team utilized location-based services data to manage and measure the impacts of LRT congestion in near-real-time.
Attend to learn:
- How the City of Ottawa's Rail Construction Program used data and analytics to optimize construction scheduling and better understand the impact of the Stage 2 Light Rail Transit extension on the surrounding transportation network
- The significance of combining public and private data to help quantify the impacts of construction projects
- Cloud computing and related technologies’ role in improving traffic and planning processes
