Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are a key component in the management of traffic. From the coordination of traffic signals to video cameras and informational message signs on the interstates, ITS is used throughout Hillsborough County.
An update to the Master Plan adopted in 2005 has been circulated through the MPO’s committees for review and comment. Once finalized, the Master Plan – which is based on interviews with key stakeholders, emergency responders, and traffic engineers – will serve as a guide for the development of ITS projects. These projects will improve mobility and safety without the high cost of roadway expansion projects in the upcoming 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. The 2040 Plan must be adopted before December 2014.
