The District Six TSM&O Program is committed to identifying ITS implementation and improvement projects to optimize the transportation management services in south Florida.
The Florida Keys Connecting Overseas to Advance Safe Travel (Keys COAST) will be the first of its kind connected and automated vehicle (CAV) project being led by FDOT District 6. The project will be located on the US 1 in Monroe County from MM 0.0 to MM 112.5. The project will establish connectivity between various modes (cars, trucks, buses, pedestrians, bicyclists, and emergency vehicles) and a connected vehicle traffic signal system (CVTSS) along with other systems such as mid‐block pedestrian crossings, weigh‐in‐motion (WIM), drawbridge, and emergency signals. The project concept includes roadside units (RSUs) capable of Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) and cellular communications, a cloud‐based information dissemination platform, customized software applications, a real‐time traffic signal performance monitoring system, on‐board units (OBUs), smartphone on‐board units, and bike‐ped safety applications. Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPM) will be established to determine the effectiveness of the project and to allow for real‐time performance monitoring.
