Traffic incidents, work zones and winter weather has a large impact on both mobility and safety nationwide. Crowdsourced probe vehicle data provides an outcome-oriented measure that can be used to calculate the impact on traffic of storms in near-real time as well as in after-action review. 

This talk presents a series of Indiana case studies derived from after-action analysis of major traffic crashes and winter storms on Indiana interstates. The talk includes recorded audio and transcripts from public safety and traffic management radio dispatch systems. The talk will conclude with interactive real-time web pages that track conditions on adjacent interstates I-90, I-94 and I-69.
