Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Characteristics of the 21st Century Operations-Oriented State DOT

The objective of this project is to support the facilitation of institutional change in state DOTs towards an increased commitment to real time operations of the existing transportation systems for maximum performance. Overall, it is the intent of this research to: (a) identify the objectives associated with an increased state DOT orientation to system operations and management; (b) describe the necessary preconditions to mainstreaming a significant commitment to operations; (c) clarify the principal challenges/barriers to need transitions; (d) suggest potential alternative models of institutional configurations/activities consistent with an increased operations orientation (internal and eternal); and (e) identify supportive activities (technical, policy, and programmatic) by AASHTO and other associations and other levels of government stakeholders.
