18 Not a Traditional Highway Corridor Study
Address Range of Policy Issues Multimodal Approach Need for Increased Funding Transportation & the Economy Drive freight innovations Identify the State DOT’s Role in Freight

19 Issues Cut Across State Lines
B Jobs Freight issues transcend boundaries Safety, capacity, emissions, funding, continued growth, etc

20 Increasingly Service Oriented Expect Continued Reliance on Trucks
Also….. Our Economy Increasingly Service Oriented Expect Continued Reliance on Trucks Need for Reliable Highway System

21 Lessons from the I-10 study
Grow the Pie The Interstate Highway System’s capacity for inter-regional goods movement and travel is vital to the nation’s economic health. Analysis of mobility demands and ways to meet those demands, clearly indicate a need for increasing maintenance and enhancement funding to expand goods movement capacity across the I-10 corridor. Increased funding should not be “categorized”, so that states can tailor the mix of capacity increasing improvements to those that are feasible and work best in any given area.

22 Lessons from the I-10 study (cont’d)
Technology Accelerators Technology strategies (e.g. ITS/CVO) show high Returns on Investment and should be a component of any capacity improvements. Implementing a standard architecture through- out the corridor will accelerate the impact of technology innovations Innovations in highway development (e.g. auto/truck separation) and in truck mobility/ operations (mass flow concepts) should be accelerated through research, investment and deployment.

23 Lessons from the I-10 study (cont’d)
From Each Mode According To Its Ability, To Each Mode According To Its Need All system elements; interstate and state highways, local streets and roads, railroads, airborne and waterborne conveyances satisfy certain mobility demands most efficiently. Each element must continue to contribute to overall mobility and should be enhanced as feasible. Prevent inappropriate intermodal shifts of mobility burdens (such as using the Interstate System to satisfy local circulation needs and using trucks to carry bulk commodities best moved by rail or barge) can delay the need for, and reduce the magnitude of, Interstate System capacity improvements.

24 Future Roles for the I-10 Partnership
Promote the lessons learned from the I-10 Study. Develop and implement a consensus ITS architecture, integrated with improvement efforts on other corridors. Help shape the FSHRP (Future Strategic Highway Research Program) agenda. Serve as a forum for sharing successes, challenges, innovations, and war stories.

25 The Major I-10 Corridor ITS Themes
Increase transportation security Enhance overall mobility Ease freight congestion

26 Why Should ITS Along the I-10 Corridor Be Integrated??
The best way to maximize the benefits of ITS is through the integration of different systems. - ATMS/ emergency coordination - Multi-state coordination improves efficiency and security of entire network From the original study: Total Costs = $605.5 million Total Benefits = $1,785.3 million B/C Ratio = 3.0

27 What is Happening Now? Many metro areas along I-10 have implemented elements of the National ITS Architecture Integrated ATMS and ATIS Emergency + ATMS coordination Not all states have implemented statewide elements Regions, states, MPO’s do not share info across the corridor

28 A Corridor-Wide Architecture……
…Goes beyond a regional or statewide instantiation of the national architecture …Addresses sharing of information… Between states Commercial-vehicle info Hazmat Emergency coordination Between shipper nodes and carriers More Efficient Connectivity Real-Time System Management Information Program

31 ITS Corridor Initiatives

32 - 10 of the Top 20 Int’l Freight Gateways Are Within 150 miles of the I-10 Corridor of these have direct connections to I-10

33 A Corridor-Wide ITS Vision: Integrated – Transportation Exchange Network (I-TEN)

34 Integrated – Transportation Exchange Network (I-TEN)
Element 1: Establish corridor-wide communications system capable of providing real- time information for management and operations in the corridor

35 Integrated – Transportation Exchange Network (I-TEN)
Element 2: Support long range real-time transportation network monitoring needs

36 Integrated – Transportation Exchange Network (I-TEN)
Element 3: Support inter-jurisdictional architecture needs, e.g. (Center-to-center (C2C) communications

38 Integrated – Transportation Exchange Network (I-TEN)
How is this accomplished? I-TEN Integration Study to Define Architecture and Programs Define Program Funding Mechanism Implementation of corridor-wide and strategic program elements

39 I-TEN Integration Study
Purpose: Establish a corridor-wide architecture and communications infrastructure to enable future technology integration efforts. Establish roles, responsibilities and timelines for future planning and deployment of ITS technologies that can increase transportation security, enhance overall mobility and ease freight congestion.

40 I-TEN Integration Study
Proposed Work Scope Task 1- Identify Strategic Concepts Task 2- Specify User Needs And Vulnerabilities Task 3- Develop I-10 ITS Integration Work Plan Task 4- Define I-10 Corridor ITS Architecture

41 I-TEN Integration Study
Address alternative operational opportunities within Corridor Recommend and organize stakeholder group – orientation to freight movements Identify operational and safety problems and opportunities Identify system needs related to above problems and opportunities Identify ITS Themes (common functional elements) from above needs Expand baseline review Inventory of existing and planned systems Task 1- Concept of Operations

42 I-TEN Integration Study
Identify information and service requirements Interviews with carriers Interviews with DMV’s/ DOT’s / other stakeholders Identify Barriers & Opportunities Identify / Assess Institutional Barriers Opportunities for integrating public and private data and technology to further the vision Develop Data, Systems and Technology Requirements Functional Requirements Data Flows Technology Constraints Based on Existing Systems Task 2- Identify User Requirements

43 I-TEN Integration Study
Review, Refine and Prioritize ITS Service Needs and Interoperability Requirements Integrated communication services Carrier/Shipper (traveler) information Traffic management Corridor-wide security enhancements Emergency management CVISN, including Level 2 deployment International border screening Task 3- Develop I-10 ITS Integration Work Plan

44 I-TEN Integration Study
Review final deployment plan with selected stakeholders Develop I-10 Sys. Arch., building on existing statewide and regional architectures in corridor Will use TurboArchitecture tool. Define potential field tests and corridor projects –scopes / budgets Define technology & telecomms standards Integrate business process, data and system architecture requirements and service needs. Develop business plan/model and deployment schedule Task 4- Define I-10 Corridor ITS Architecture

45 I-TEN Integration Study
Summary I-10 Corridorwide ITS deployment requires an integrated approach to achieve maximum mobility and economic benefits I-TEN would provide the framework for implementing corridor-wide and strategic deployment of I-10 Corridor ITS enhancements Complementary to other I-10 initiatives (e.g., truck lanes / truck tolling, etc.)
