THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW YORK CITY'S REGIONAL TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTER

The final phase of New York City's traffic management system (VTCS) has been the design and construction of the traffic operations center. The design and layout for the operations center must create the facilities for efficient and coordinated operation of a large scale system (10,000 intersections). A 6,600 square foot area on the ground floor at 28-11 Queens Plaza North has housed the original system since the late 1960s; since the equipment has been replaced and the system has doubled in size, the operation center had to be redesigned. For New York City's ATMS, this has included such issues as HVAC, lighting, noise reduction, projection graphics, video surveillance, traffic engineering support, communications and controller maintenance support, computer system and network management, a CCTV headend for Manhattan, security, operator amenities (breakroom, kitchen facilities, etc.) and additional facilities such as a crisis management center and observation area.
