3 Meet Your Project Team

4 The Region’s ITS Vision The Region will use Intelligent Transportation Systems to provide cost-effective and practical technologies that enhance the safety, capacity, operations and evaluation of the area's modes of transportation.

5 The Region’s ITS Goals 1.Integrate efficient and effective ITS into the Region’s transportation planning and project development. 2.Improve information sharing among the region’s transportation agencies and with the public. 3.Increase the safety and security of all modes of transportation through improved infrastructure monitoring and emergency management. 4.Improve the utilization of existing facilities and infrastructure. 5.Improve the ability to evaluate and measure the performance of the transportation network through the effective use of technology.

6 Today’s Objectives Define Intelligent Transportation Systems and their applications. Discuss how the region currently uses ITS. Learn what your transportation needs are. Share how stakeholders can stay involved in this project.

7 Lawrence- Douglas County Regional ITS Architecture Update What is ITS?

8 Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) The use of information and communications technologies to meet transportation needs

15 Electronic Toll Collection Kansas Turnpike Authority

16 What Is an ITS Architecture? Framework for Integrating Transportation Systems Identifies: Organizations Systems Operated Functions Performed Communications Information Exchanged

17 ITS Architectures Provide a Framework for Integration traffic information request for traffic information Travelers Emergency Transit Traffic I-70 Closed

18 Why Build an ITS Architecture? To structure the region’s technology plans. To avoid redundancy in systems. To ensure cost-effective technology deployment. To identify opportunities to share information. To satisfy federal requirements for ITS expenditures.

19 What Is the Stakeholder Role? Represent groups who operate and use the transportation network. All modes, all travel purposes Identify the Region’s needs. Breakout exercise Identify strategies to address those needs. Follow-up discussion

25 Meeting Your Needs Existing Inventory Needs New Services Provided by ITS to Address Needs System Functions Roles & Responsibilities ITS Projects Stakeholder Input Gaps

26 Lawrence-Douglas County Regional ITS Architecture Update Breakout Groups

27 Exercise #1 – Mark Up the Maps Black Marker for Trucking and Freight. Red Marker for Congestion at Intersections and Corridors. Blue Marker for Bicycle, Pedestrian and Transit. Green Marker for Weather-related and/or Construction Issues.

28 Exercise #1 – Mark Up the Maps Spend 30 minutes marking map with issues. Spend 10 minutes using post-it notes to identify the locations that could most benefit from ITS.

29 Lawrence-Douglas County Regional ITS Architecture Update Review of Breakout Groups
