Summary Information

In 2004, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) started a project that developed and tested a methodology for evaluating advanced traveler information systems (ATIS). Phase 2 of the project applied the evaluation methodology to a diverse group of 17 intelligent transportation systems (ITS) projects covering everything from ITS planning to safety improvements.

Among the projects evaluated, was the SR 14 traveler information system that was developed in two phases: the Columbia Gorge Traveler Information System Pilot Program and the SR 14 Traveler Information System Enhancements.The eqipment installed provide information to the Southwest Region traffic management center (TMC) in Vancouver, Washington, to aid WSDOT personnel in managing the roadway. Weather information from the RWIS station is available to WSDOT maintenance crews and is provided to the public via the WSDOT website.

The project was developed in two phases: the Columbia Gorge Traveler Information System Pilot Program and the SR 14 Traveler Information System Enhancements.
  • Phase 1 cost $300,000 and included 2 VMS, a highway advisory radio (HAR) station and one RWIS station with a CCTV camera.
  • Phase 2 cost $211,300 and included a HAR station and a VMS.
