This study’s goal is to yield a Systems Management and Operations Plan that helps the MAG region make smart investments. These investments would support essential transportation technology/ITS infrastructure components. They would also add resources for the operation and management of critical elements of the region’s transportation system. This plan is supposed to identify infrastructure needs in priority corridors and detect what may need to be done to improve operations. Two outcomes of this approach may be that along with making future investments in essential ITS technology infrastructure, the region may also need to be better organized and funded to support to critical operations.
Oversight for the study is provided by a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that consists of members of MAG’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Committee, MAG Transportation Review Committee leaders, and ADOT and MAG staff. All TAG meetings are held in conjunction with MAG ITS Committee meetings. They will include updates on study status, discussions at key study milestones and review of draft documents. The execution of each task will result in a Task Report that will document the work performed, findings and recommendations. The finalized Task Reports will serve as chapters of the Final Report.
The study will seek MAG review and approval at two key decision points on:
The adoption and implementation of the resulting plan, by incorporating the recommendations within the TIP project programing process, is expected to result in improved safety, efficiency and reliability of the transportation system.
