ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) is the use of technology to move traffic more efficiently without the addition of new traffic lanes by addressing incidents that affect the capacity of the transportation system. The department is using ITS components such as cameras and speed detection devices to allow quick detection, confirmation, and appropriate response to highway incidents. The departments' Highway Incident Management "HELP" units are dispatched and other emergency responders (fire, police, ambulance, etc.) are notified and given as much detail about the incident as possible to aid in quick clearance. Changeable message boards and internet links to roadway cameras allow the public to adjust their travel plans to minimize the impact of incidents and reduce travel delays.
