FDOT District Six Attends Integrated Corridor Management Conference in New York, New Jersey
The Florida Department of Transportation District Six Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSM&O) office attended an Integrated Corridor Management Concept of Operations Study Scenario Planning Workshop on August 2-3 in the New York/New Jersey area.
The two-day conference allowed local stakeholders to coordinate with transportation management professionals from all over the country, including representatives from Districts Six and Four. The workshop highlighted several corridors and provided attendees with four scenarios to discuss and propose potential solutions.
This collaborative approach for ideas helped local stakeholders and responsible agencies solve problems while considering input from other agencies from across the country. The scenarios presented ranged from transit and train corridors to heavily traveled roadways at peak times with specific lane closures to consider.
The experience was beneficial for FDOT attendees as well. FDOT staff was able to contribute lessons learned from some of South Florida’s most complex transportation solutions while learning about more robust public transportation systems found in New York and New Jersey.
Integrated Corridor Management Workshops are a great way for industry professionals from around the country to collaborate on solving critical problems and bringing back a wealth of knowledge to their respective regions.
