Project #: 4264543
Start Date: 11/01/1999
End Date: 03/30/2007

As part of the California/Oregon Advanced Transportation System (COATS) project, the Siskiyou Pass area, near the California/Oregon border, was identified as having transportation challenges related to traveler information, traveler mobility, and incident management. To evaluate whether Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) deployments throughout the bi-state region have improved traveler information, traveler surveys were distributed throughout the project area. The surveys focused on evaluating the functionality of the most recent ITS deployments and upgrades as well as identifying traveler characteristics, travel habits, and demographic characteristics of Siskiyou Pass travelers. In addition, the evaluation included interviews with various state agencies having a stake in incident management.


To evaluate strategic ITS deployments throughout the Siskiyou Pass region including Highway Advisory Radio, Changeable Message Signs, Kiosks, Closed-Circuit Television Cameras and a Regional Incident Management Plan.
