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?

  1. Washington County recognizes that the County cannot afford to simply build ourselves out of congestion.
  2. Washington County wants to maximize the efficiencies of the County's existing infrastructure.
  3. Public demand is for better information about traffic congestion so they can decrease delay and/or avoid congested areas.
  4. 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.
