"ITS Planning, Funding, Operations and Maintenance - the State and Federal Perspective"
The Minnesota Department of Transportation is currently leading the update of Minnesota's 20 Year Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan and the Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan. Together, these plans establish agency objectives and strategies along with the investment framework for meeting these objectives. Strategic investment in Intelligent Transportation Systems has a significant and increasing role in addressing several objectives. This seminar will provide an overview of the plan development process, the draft plan objectives and investment direction, as well as, discuss specifically where ITS solutions can be applied to meet objectives.
Also, you will learn about MnDOT's efforts towards Transportation System Maintenance and Operations (TSMO) along with the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) reliability implementations in Minnesota.
