IMMEDIATE ACTION PROGRAM, HOUSTON ITS PRIORITY CORRIDOR PROGRAM PLAN. INTERIM REPORT

The Houston ITS Priority Corridor is one of four corridors selected by the U.S. Department of Transportation to showcase Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications. The Texas Transportation Institute is assisting Houston TranStar, a coalition of four local governments, comprised of the Texas Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Transit Authority, Harris County, and City of Houston, in developing the Houston ITS Priority Corridor Program Plan. This interim report documents development of the Immediate Action Program. Fourteen immediate action projects, with an estimated total cost of $9,192,500, have been proposed. These projects focus primarily on transportation management and traveler information systems. The final report will develop a 20-year vision for the Houston ITS Priority Corridor, with specific deployment projects identified for the initial 10-year period, of which this Immediate Action Program will be a part.
