Summary Information

The 2008/2009 Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six Annual Report focuses on a variety of ITS deployments, TMC operations, Traffic Incident Management (TIM) activities, Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS), and IT/ITS Maintenance activities. One important area is the SunGuide Transportation Management Center (TMC). This TMC houses the FDOT Operations staff who monitor and manage traffic, disseminate information and dispatch incident management resources 24 hours per day, 7 days per week (24/7). In the event of a traffic incident, such as a crash or a hazardous materials spill, the operators coordinate with emergency responders and the Road Rangers to provide the necessary emergency and rescue services to clear the incident as quickly and safely as possible. This coordination is enhanced by the co-location of the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority TMC Operations staff and the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Troop "E" dispatch in the TMC. The SunGuide TMC in District Six works closely with other control centers within the region sharing video images, Road Rangers, data, and other real-time information to provide a seamless approach to regional traffic management. The TMC also provided control room space for the 511 service provider that disseminated travel information to the public throughout the Southeast Florida region this fiscal year.
