Figure 5: Traffic Signal Management Plan Development Process.
ƒƒ Develop an outreach strategy for policymakers and the public
for the traffic signal program management plan.
FHWA has partnered with ITE and the National Operations
Center of Excellence. Training and documents are available to
support development of Traffic Signal Management Plans, implement
technology such as Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures
(ATSPM), and to improve signal timing. Resources can be found
by visiting the FHWA Arterial Management website at https://ops.
fhwa.dot.gov/arterial_mgmt/, and those interested can become
involved with councils and committees hosted by ITE, AASHTO,
and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). There are ongoing
and innovative programs available through peer networks, research,
professional capacity building, and resources available from FHWA
and professional organizations. There are many opportunities for
transportation professionals to move their agencies forward to the
next level of organizational capability. itej
