The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requires that Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) projects funded through the Highway Trust Fund conform to the National ITS Architecture and applicable standards. To meet these requirements and ensure future federal funding eligibility for ITS, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) initiated the development of regional ITS architectures and deployment plans throughout the State of Texas. The Corpus Christi Region is predominantly rural in nature, with the City of Corpus Christi serving as the major population center in the Region. Primary interstate and state routes that traverse the Region include I-37, US 281, US 77, US 183, US 181, and US 59. These corridors are key links for inter- and intra-state movement of people and goods. I-37 is one of the most heavily traveled truck routes in southern Texas. The effective operation of this highway is critical to the movement of goods and people to the City and Port of Corpus Christi from San Antonio. The Corpus Christi Regional ITS Architecture provides the framework and prioritizes the key functions and services desired by stakeholders in the Region. The Corpus Christi ITS Deployment Plan builds on the architecture by prioritizing market packages, outlining specific ITS project recommendations and strategies for the Region and identifying deployment timeframes so that the recommended projects and strategies can be implemented over time. Agency responsibilities for implementing and operating the systems also are a key component of the ITS Deployment Plan
