Travel Impacts and Adjustment Strategies of the Collapse and the Reopening of the I-35W Bridge

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

Major network disruptions have significant impacts on local travelers. Understanding the behavioral reactions to such incidents is crucial for traffic management and planning. This study investigates travelers' reaction to both the collapse and reopening of the I-35W Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Web-based surveys conducted at residences in several communities across the metropolitan area supplement hand-out/mail-back paper-based surveys distributed to workers in areas around the bridge collapse (downtown Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota). Findings from the four surveys highlight differences in travel impacts and behavioral reactions after the unplanned bridge collapse and the planned bridge reopening.
