This paper presents a fast and scalable re-routing algorithm that adapts to dynamically changing networks. The proposed algorithm integrates Dijkstra`s shortest path algorithm with the genetic algorithm. Dijkstra`s algorithm is used to define the predecessor array that facilitates the initialization process of the genetic algorithm. After that, the genetic algorithm re-searches the optimal path through appropriate genetic operators under dynamic traffic situations. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm produces routes with less traveling time and computational overhead than pure genetic algorithm-based approaches as well as the standard Dijkstra`s algorithm for large-scale networks.
