Please share any documentation that you may have regarding benefits and costs of ITS.
Install detection sensors overhead on existing signal mast heads when possible, instead of using in-ground sensors to reduce both initial costs and maintenance costs.The experience of Midtown in Motion project by NYC DOT with advanced signal control systems.
Use vehicle probes to monitor traffic cost-effectively, manage incidents and queue ups proactively, reduce delays, and increase traveler satisfaction along a multi-state transportation corridor.I-95Corridor Coalition Experience with Vehicle Probes
Beware of costs, utility, reliability, and maintenance issues in deploying a statewide transportation network monitoring system. Statewide systems implementation experience from iFlorida Model Deployment
Strengthen the ability to coordinate and manage operations for planned special events by co-locating a traffic management center with a public safety center with representatives from police, fire and 9-1-1.Experience from Montgomery County, Maryland using ITS for planned special events.
Use portable ITS equipment to monitor and control traffic flow at major signalized intersections located at entrance and exit points near planned special events.Experience from Dutchess County, New York using ITS for planned special events in a rural area.
