Intelligent Transportation System (ITS)
What is an ITS Plan?
An Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Plan is a framework of policies, procedures, and strategies for integrating a region's existing resources with ITS technology to effectively meet the future transportation needs and expectations of the region.
Why Develop a Washington County ITS Plan?
- Washington County recognizes that the County cannot afford to simply build ourselves out of congestion.
- Washington County wants to maximize the efficiencies of the County's existing infrastructure.
- Public demand is for better information about traffic congestion so they can decrease delay and/or avoid congested areas.
- The Federal Highway Administration requires that all ITS projects funded through the Highway Trust Fund shall be in conformance with the National ITS Architecture and applicable standards.
