On the Road to Modernized Transportation

The primary objectives for state and local transportation departments (DOTs) are to minimize the risk of traffic injury or death, reduce congestion, improve travel, and reduce pollutants that drive climate change and impact public health.   

Let’s explore this case study, which details how the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is making roads safer with intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and how it could be applied at your agency.  

Wanting to meet its goal of “safety first,” NDOT was looking to give drivers real-time information on road, traffic and weather conditions for its 5,400 miles of highway.   

To deliver on that promise, NDOT needed to lay the foundations for its next-generation intelligent transportation system while managing a growing inventory of devices on the state’s highways.  

The department chose to adopt a modernized networking solution that supports both current and future technology while also reducing the time it takes to deploy new devices, services and applications, thus freeing personnel to focus on other mission-critical tasks.   

“The new solution makes it simpler to provide the best services throughout the 25 billion miles traveled by our road users annually, providing the right information for safe travel and ultimately reducing the time spent on the road,” said Gary Molnar, ITS Network Manager for the Nevada Department of Transportation.
