The New Mexico Department of Transportation is expanding the District 5 Traffic Operations Center (TOC). We assessed the current communication methods and technologies used within the District 5 TOC. From various interviews and research we recommended that the TOC increase operational efficiency and interagency communications by implementing the following technologies and systems: Dashboard systems, NMRoads access expansion, automatic vehicle location, jurisdictional boundaries and infrastructure map, and interagency conferences, notification systems and contact lists.
Expand the District 5 Traffic Operation Center to increase interagency communication methods and technologies.
