Appying a Regional ITS Architecture to Support Planning for Operations
The Federal Highway Administration recently released a primer on ways to integrate operations into a regional intelligent transportation system (ITS) architecture. The primer will provide transportation planners and operations staff effective strategies to apply planning for operations through the regional ITS architecture. Many transportation management and operations strategies have an ITS component that lends itself to being a part of a regional ITS architecture. The regional ITS architecture should be updated and/or created in a coordinated effort between transportation planners and operations managers to make sure it is relevant and easy-to-use in planning for operations.
