Portable Traffic Management System: Smart Work Zone Application. Operational Test Evaluation Report

As part of its statewide Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) sponsored an operational test of the Portable Traffic Management System (PTMS) in a work zone application in cooperation with its private sector partners. The overall goal of the operational test was to provide useful real-time information to motorists about the traffic conditions as they approach and pass through the work zone. The intended purpose of providing the real-time information in the work zone is to improve safety for motorists, improve safety for construction personnel and to minimize the work zone related delays experienced by motorists. As a federally-approved ITS operational test, this independent evaluation was required.
