The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has recreated its Southeast Michigan Traffic Management Center (Booth: 2027) at 2014 ITS World Congress. The center is recognised as one of the most innovative TMCs in the U.S., having to deal with a complex multi-modal transportation network on the border of Canada.
Traffic management administrators will monitor traffic in real time and field real calls on the showroom floor as part of their daily operations in Detroit. Attendees will be able to interact with monitors set up in the temporary center, seeing how MDOT responds to congestion and incidents on the city’s streets.
Local, county, state and federal officials will also showcase how they coordinate with partners such as Amtrak and the Ministry of Transportation Ontario.
