ITSVA 17th Annual Conference

ITSVA 17th Annual Conference

ITS Virginia (ITSVA) “serves as a forum and network for its public and private sector members to share information, ideas and experiences” concerning Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), i.e. “technologies that improve the safety, security and efficiency of the surface transportation system” in Virginia.

On May 4 and 5, ITSVA held its Annual Conference in Richmond.  Conference sessions included:

Active Traffic Management Around the World: Lessons for Virginia

Port Improvement Projects

Active Transportation and Demand Management

Two reports from eastern Virginia were presented to the group:

HRTPO Efforts & Initiatives, by Robert B. Case, HRTPO staff

Eastern Region Activities, by Dwayne Cook, VDOT

At the Options for Considering Operational Improvements in the Planning Process session, HRTPO staff learned how to calculate a “buffer index” (95th percentile travel time divided by average travel time) which staff can use to measure travel time reliability on Hampton Roads’ interstates and major arterials.
