About Quick Clearance

The I-95 Corridor Coalition has developed a wealth of Quick Clearance reference materials, including a Quick Clearance Toolkit to help in initiating or improving Quick Clearance programs and activities in jurisdictions. The contents of this easy-to-use, “A-Z” quick clearance implementation guide are provided on this page and include:

  • ToolboxQuick Clearance Toolkit – A roadmap for developing a Traffic Incident Management Program, providing policy makers and practitioners in traffic incident management with handy and ready-to-use tools to assist them in providing more effective TIM practices in general, but with primary emphasis on quick clearance. The toolkit is designed for use by multiple disciplines, including DOT, TMC, Police, Fire, EMS, Investigator, HAZMAT, Road Maintenance, Towing, Service Patrol, Medical Examiner, and the Media.
  • Quick Clearance Videos – This collection provides a variety of Quick Clearance program highlights, in interesting and educational formats.
  • Quick Clearance Documents – A tremendous resource of documents, from existing programs, related to best practices in statutory, regulatory, policy, administrative and operational issues.
  • Quick Clearance Workshops – I-95 Corridor Coalition is offering a series of workshops to present Quick Clearance Implementation Best Practices. There are two Quick Clearance Workshops available – an Executive Forum and a Responder Workshop. The Executive Forum is intended for senior agency officials and legislative staff who are in positions to influence the creation of TIM/QC laws, policies, regulations, and programs. And the Responder Workshop is intended for upper and middle managers who are directly responsible for implementing laws, policies, and the like, and who supervise responders directly or indirectly.

All of these documents can be accessed below, including the full Toolkit, Quick Clearance videos and other pertinent references.
