MAG Systems Management and Operations PlanThe goal of this MAG study is to produce a Systems Management and Operations Plan that would help guide the MAG region in making strategic investments needed to expand and support: (1) essential transportation technology/ITS infrastructure components, and (2) resources essential for the efficient operation and management of critical components of the regional transportation system.It is anticipated that this Plan will identify infrastructure needs in priority corridors and also identify what may need to be done for improving operations. A fundamental premise of this approach is that, in addition to making future investments in essential ITS technology infrastructure, the region may also need to be better organized and funded to support to critical operations.

Project Oversight

Oversight for the study is provided by a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that consists of members of the MAG Intelligent Transportation Systems Committee, leadership of the MAG Transportation Review Committee, and staff at Arizona DOT and MAG. All TAG meetings are planned to be held in conjunction with MAG ITS Committee meetings, and will include updates on study status, discussions at key study milestones and review of draft documents. The execution of each task will result in a Task Report that will document the work performed, findings and recommendations. The finalized Task Reports will serve as chapters of the Final Report.
