North/West Passage ITS Integrated Corridor Strategic Plan

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  07/10/2007

Summary:

The vision of the North/West Passage Corridor is to immediately influence ongoing standards development and utilize effective methods for sharing, coordinating, and integrating traveler information across state borders. While travel information reflects the initial destiny, maintenance and operations and planning and programming are long-term visions. The vision provides a framework to guide the states' future projects in the corridor. Conversely, a set of near-term goals and objectives are also identified in the plan and are based on the issues and needs currently faced in the corridor. Building upon the high-level architecture and assessment, a series of projects were then identified in the strategic plan. Projects were selected based on their ability to achieve the traveler information and maintenance operations goals identified earlier in the strategic plan. The projects are presented in a recommended sequence and contain details on approach, potential benefits, affected stakeholders, and estimated costs. With this strategic plan, the North/West Passage states have developed a set of recommended projects geared toward achieving their near-term goals. These projects may be folded into annual work plans or used to secure future funding for the corridor. The plan also establishes a process for future project development that will enhance deployment efforts in the corridor. Ultimately, this plan will help the North/West Passage achieve their vision to influence ongoing standards development and utilize effective methods for sharing, coordinating, and integrating traveler information across state borders.
