Oregon DOT ITS Maintenance Plan

Started: March, 1999 Ended: December, 1999 Project ID #428037 Status: Completed

Objective

The object of this project is to develop a long-range maintenance plan for ODOT’s existing Intelligent Transportation Systems Strategic Plan: 1997-2017, which identified statewide ITS deployment technologies and practices over the next twenty years.

Abstract

The mission statement of the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is “to provide safe and effective transportation systems that support economic opportunity and livable communities for Oregonians.” (1) One increasingly important part of fulfilling ODOT’s mission is the strategic deployment of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). ITS integrates advanced technology into the transportation system for both users and operators, in order to enhance the safety and efficiency of the system. To protect its investment in ITS, ODOT is endeavoring to ensure the proper and timely operation of all ITS deployments through appropriate maintenance activities. For this reason, ODOT has partnered with the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University-Bozeman (WTI-MSU) to develop this statewide ITS maintenance plan. This plan is intended to provide five clear points of guidance for ODOT in relation to ITS maintenance:· a model for processing ITS maintenance;· a schedule for prioritizing ITS maintenance activities;· a preventative maintenance schedule for all existing and planned devices;· an assessment of training and contracting needs for ensuring that all maintenance activities are performed properly; and· a comprehensive budget for ITS maintenance.
