Transportation issues in Hampton Roads are complex and, there is no single, “silver-bullet” to solve them overnight. Whether budget constraints continue as tight as they are today or not, a sole focus on large scale construction can not mitigate the region’s wide-spread congestion. To be fair, neither is there a single technology that can be deployed that would solve all the issues but accurate, correlated data stored and analyzed using appropriate techniques could have a significant impact.

This paper outlines the potential of leveraging current Hampton Roads Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) initiatives (both local and regional) and suggests some emerging technologies that could have a high payoff, even in the short term.

Some examples include: increased, real-time traffic monitoring using road-side sensors and active, in-vehicle location systems can significantly assist in understanding traffic flow, responding to situations through control measures and, if published to public websites and transmitted to cars, citizens can chose different routes, decreasing local traffic volume and helping to solve both recurring and no-recurring congestion. (low cost, high pay-off)
