Advancing Technology and Roadway Operations (AT)

What is Advancing Technology and Roadway Operations?

Advancing Technology and Roadway Operations (AT) involves advancing operations by advancing technology. Many operations improvement strategies are based in technology. MoDOT has deployed a number of these technology solutions and TSMO strategies to enhance the reliability of the transportation network through active management of the system statewide. Statewide programs include Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs, Work Zone Management (WZM) programs and road weather applications. 

Existing technology solutions include:

  • Closed-circuit television (CCTV)
  • Ramp meters
  • Dynamic message signs (DMS)
  • Traffic detectors the supporting communications systems

Connected and autonomous vehicles are quickly changing the way DOTs think about technology applications on the transportation network. These vehicles together with the robust data sets and technologies on the transportation network are anticipated to further capitalize on the investments MoDOT has made to advance operations and provide the next safety breakthrough.
