Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Pacific Rim TransTech Conference: Volume I: Advanced Technologies
The Boston Central Artery/Tunnel project involves highways 190 and 193, in downtown Boston, placing underground 7 miles of four to eight lane tunnels. The project, with 37 lane-miles underground, will be one of the busiest, most extensive and complex systems of underground highway anywhere in the world. This paper describes the integrated control system and the operation of new technology. Finally, it explores issues that may develop when new IVHS technologies complement a large-scale predominantly underground urban highway.
