ITS Master Plan

  1. 1. City of College Station Intelligent Transportation System Master Plan Presentation to City Council June 26, 2014
  2. 2. AGENDA • What is and why implement ITS • The College Station plan • Examples in action
  3. 3. Problem - Our transportation infrastructure – highways and arterials, ports, and airways – are simply over used. Congestion has impacted every aspect of our daily lives.
  4. 4. Problem - • Congestion alone, accounts for over $100 billion in lost productivity, wasted fuel, and environmental damage. Source: Texas Transportation Institute
  5. 5. Fact - The level of mobility on which we have come to depend can no longer be taken for granted
  6. 6. WHAT IS ITS?
  7. 7. What is ITS? • Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is: – Technology that is leveraged to : • collect important information • convey important information • share information • ITS helps make informed decisions • ITS improves transportation safety and mobility • ITS enhances productivity
  8. 8. ITS • ITS compliments traditional capacity building practices • ITS compliments current initiatives for traffic management (Game Day) • ITS is not a silver bullet. It cannot make congestion go away, it can help manage the problem
  9. 9. ITS MASTER PLAN BENEFITS • Provides vision for ITS deployment in the City • Describes how system components work together now and in the future • Identifies opportunities for resource sharing
  10. 10. Steps to Create the Plan • Determine goals • Develop concept of operations • Identify state of the practice • Determine technology and equipment • Identify communications network topology • Develop requirements • Develop plan
  11. 11. Goals of ITS • Improve safety and mobility • Enhance security • Increase staff efficiency • Communicate to field devices
  12. 12. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Goal Objectives Establish a Replacement Strategy for Existing Equipment  Identify a strategy to replace existing legacy equipment  Include funding expenditure for equipment replacement Establish Performance Monitoring Program  Identify performance measures and data sources Construct Traffic Management Center  Identify the functions to be fulfilled from a central point of command and control  Identify location  Identify funding  Provide real-time information about incidents to fire and police departments  Evaluate traffic conditions in real-time Establish Operational Strategies  Review operations during special events  Respond to incidents  Support regional operations  Monitor traffic signal operations in real-time. Establish System Health Performance Monitoring  Identify types of operational data that will determine the operational health of the system Support the BCSMI  Select equipment that will foster communication with partner agencies equipment.  Remotely determine signal problems and evaluate needed repairs
  13. 13. SYSTEM TOURS • Peer City Tours: – Norman (OK) – Frisco – Garland – Arlington – Sugar Land • Take Away: – Traffic management centers enhance communication and management – Staffed TMC during peak periods, special events, incident management – Good communication network a must – CCTV cameras are a significant benefit to managing traffic demand and roadway congestion (planned and unplanned) – Share data with partners
  14. 14. STATE OF THE PRACTICE • Traffic signal controllers and cabinets – City’s current cabinet architecture is based on a 1980’s era standard – Decision to move to current standard – Replace strategically over time
  15. 15. STATE OF THE PRACTICE • Traffic management software – Need a modern system to provide command and control to all ITS devices – Based on proven success – Provide alerts, alarms, reports – Real-time information – Provide better management of the complete system – Support BCSMI where possible/practical
  16. 16. Example TMC’s
  17. 17. Implementation Plan • Start with most needed • Enhance capabilities • Implement in phases
