Nebraska Department of Roads: An Example of Statewide Incident and Transportation Management

The Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) has just completed installation of Phase 1 of their Statewide Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS) which can be seen as a model for the implementation of a system that utilizes technologies and an architecture that enables common statewide incident and traffic management, without breaking the bank for the deployment of elaborate communication, computer and software technologies. The system was deployed while allowing each of the independent Districts and state functional units to operate as usual, while introducing a new web-based software application that allows any NDOR staff person to monitor roadway situations, weather conditions, travel speeds, incidents, planned construction activities and roadway assets while simultaneously being able to operate roadway message signs, surveillance cameras and in the future automated roadway/ramp gate closure systems.
