Baseline Evaluation and Annual Assessment of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Implemented by the WVDOH

The West Virginia Depart of Highways (WVDOH) is responsible for the design, maintenance, and construction over the majority of the state's highway system which includes 37,370 miles of roadways and 6,343 bridges. The demand for highway travel through West Virginia continues to grow. To create a balanced, stable traffic flow throughout our roadway system and to make traveling more safe and efficient to the motoring public, the WVDOH is proposing to implement an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) which employs the use of advanced sensors, computers, electronics, communication technologies and management strategies in an integrated manner to improve safety and efficiency of the state's highway systems. Some of these technologies include Dynamic Message Signs, Video Image Detection Systems, and Closed Circuit Television Cameras.
