Several ENTERPRISE member agencies have transportation networks within their jurisdictions that intersect with international borders: Michigan DOT, Minnesota DOT, Texas DOT, and Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO).
Management and coordination of traffic operations at borders often requires agency resources. In addition, it is important to provide accurate and timely traveler information, such as border wait times, alerts, and construction notices, to the traveling public.
ITS technologies and systems used at borders often serve a critical purpose in assisting agencies with traffic management and traveler information. Enhanced knowledge of available technologies, uses, and benefits will equip ENTERPRISE members with potential solutions to improve agency coordination and management.
The project documented issues, challenges, practices, coordination approaches, and technologies for managing traffic at highway border crossings.
As one component of this project, two project webinars were held to share information on a variety of topics.
