Guide for Multistate Transportation Operations Programs

Multistate transportation operations programs (MSTOPs) have proven vital to the reliability and security of key interstate corridors. Weather information, emergency operations, goods movement, homeland security, and traveler information have been substantially enhanced through interstate relationships and partnerships that typically engage the transportation and public safety communities. MSTOPs also offer an institutional framework for coordinating and collaborating on regional operations across state borders and multijurisdictional planning. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) recognizes that support and further development of MSTOPs will have significant state, regional, and national benefits. An AASHTO guide on MSTOPs will demonstrate their importance and provide guidance on forming and sustaining them. The objective of this research project is to develop a guide for multistate transportation operations programs that is suitable for adoption by AASHTO.
