Next Generation Traffic Management Centers

Traffic management centers (TMCs) are critical to providing mobility to millions of people travelling on high-volume roadways. In Virginia, as with most regions of the United States, TMCs were aggressively deployed in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Thus, most TMCs use technology of this time period. Recent advances in technology may provide improvements for TMCs in terms of function and cost. The purpose of this project was to assess the current state of the traffic management center as well as to look at what TMCs may be able to implement to further improve operations and accomplish their goals. The primary focus is on new technology as well as an evaluation of business philosophy and the decision-making process used by TMCs. The report concludes with recommendations for potential areas of improvement and the feasibility of implementation of those recommendations.
