Freeway service patrol (FSP) is an incident management measure designed to assist disabled vehicles along congested freeway segments and reduce congestion through quick detection, response, and removal of accidents and other incidents on freeways. A two-year demonstration project has been proposed to extend FSP service to big-rigs and other heavy vehicles along the I-710 freeway. The report describes the work performed and the findings from the preliminary evaluation of the proposed I-710 Big-rig FSP demonstration project. The results show that the proposed FSP big-rig project will be cost-effective. Next steps in the ongoing research include detailed evaluation of the effectiveness of the FSP service based on field measurements throughout the two-year demonstration, and development of operational procedures for implementing big-rig FSP service to other freeway routes.
