The Legislature required the Department of Transportation to submit a report on Traffic Operations Strategies (TOPS). This report responds to the Legislative requirement by describing the motivation for TOPS the current status of TOPS, and opportunities for implementing TOPS projects. TOPS is a strategy for addressing congestion problems through better system management. The goals of TOPS are to reduce congestion, increase trip predictability, and enhance safety especially on our most congested corridors. The two-pronged TOPS approach seeks to influence demand and tap all available capacity. The proposed TOPS projects operational and performance focus acts as a bridge between major system management, transportation demand management and system expansion efforts
