Congestion Initiative Leaflets

One element of the U.S. DOT's Congestion Initiative, National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America's Transportation Network, released in May 2006, is to promote the use of new technologies, such as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).

A series of leaflets published in January 2007 discusses how ITS technologies can be used in traffic incident management, traveler information, work zones, and traffic signal control to curb congestion and smooth traffic flow. Developed jointly by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the ITS Joint Program Office, the leaflets summarize the benefits, costs, extent of deployment, and lessons learned about these congestion-battling strategies. Information in the leaflets is taken from the ITS Decisionmakers' Resources – the ITS Benefits Database (www.itsbenefits.its.dot.gov), the ITS Costs Database (www.itscosts.its.dot.gov), the ITS Deployment Statistics Database (www.itsdeployment.its.dot.gov), and the ITS Lessons Learned Knowledge Resource (www.itslessons.its.dot.gov) – and other sources. The online version of each leaflet contains a full list of all sources used, so that all information presented in the leaflets is backed up with supporting documentation.
