Transportation agencies are constantly exploring opportunities to improve how they manage travel on the surface transportation system. This responsibility continues to evolve as technologies advance and agencies are charged with improving safety and mobility with limited resources. This session will highlight the tools, technologies and practices agencies should consider to capture the data connected and automated vehicles and travelers will generate to improve travel and the capabilities, efficiency and effectiveness of these systems.

Innovative Approaches to Planning and Evaluating Active Traffic Management Strategies
Beverly Kuhn, Texas A&M Transportation InstituteShow Abstract
This presentation will provide an update on NCHRP 03-114: Planning and Evaluating Active Traffic Management Strategies. The presenter will share recent information added to the Interim Guidebook (NCHRP 03-114) which provides guidance for transportation agencies to identify a path forward with ATM suited to meet their regional needs, characteristics, capabilities, and available resources.
The Active Traffic Management Domestic Inventory
Philip Masters, ParsonsShow Abstract
The Freeway Operations Committee, ATM Joint Subcommittee, AASHTO Transportation System Transportation Management and Operations Technical Committee, and the National Operations Center of Excellence have been working to develop an inventory of active traffic management operational deployments in the United States. This inventory is intended to serve as a resource for agencies considering ATM for their regions to understand how others have approached ATM and what lessons have been learned through those experiences.
Traffic Management Centers in a Connected Vehicle Environment
Lisa Burgess, Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc.Show Abstract
This project was conducted for the Transportation Systems Pooled Fund Study and assessed the potential impacts of connected vehicles on transportation management centers, including operational capabilities, data sources, and key considerations. The presentation will present the project results within the context of traffic management capability.

Guidelines for Virtual Transportation Management Center Development
Daniel Lukasik, ParsonsShow Abstract
This presentation will highlight the results of a document that developed guidelines for the creation, implementation, and operation of a Virtual Traffic Management Center (VTMC). These guidelines identify the recommended procedures, roles, and responsibilities for planning and establishing a VTMC, as well as case studies highlighting transportation agencies that have gone or are considering going through this process.
