How to use this web site.

The Connecticut Statewide ITS Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration in the State of Connecticut over the next 10 to 15 years.  The Statewide ITS Architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the state's transportation agencies, covering all modes and all roads in the state.  The Statewide ITS Architecture was developed from existing documentation and from input gathered during stakeholder meetings and workshops. This draft ITS architecture takes into account stakeholder meetings which have taken place through April 4, 2005.

We first systematically identify the existing and future inventory of stakeholder ITS elements based on existing regional and corridor deployments, existing ITS architecture documentation, and stakeholder articulation of needs in the workshops. Next, we identify generic services through National ITS Architecture Market Packages, and where stakeholders indicate a need, we customize those market packages for specific applications (existing, planned (i.e. "programmed") or future) identified by the stakeholders. This customization identifies information exchange at the architecture flow level. Finally, we roll-up all information exchange requirements at the architecture flow level for each ITS entity in the State, and review this with the stakeholders in a final 1-day architecture workshop.

Presentations from these meetings can be viewed by selecting the Project Documents button at the left.

The Statewide ITS Architecture, when completed, will represent a shared vision of how each agencies' systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the State. 

Time Horizon and Services

This Statewide ITS Architecture has a time horizon of up to fifteen years, with particular focus on those transportation elements that are likely to be implemented in the next ten years.   The ITS architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Transit Management, Traveler Information, Maintenance and Construction, Emergency Management, Archived Data Management and Commercial Vehicle Operations over this time horizon. 

About this Web Site

The purpose of this Statewide ITS Architecture web site is to encourage use of this ITS architecture and gather feedback so that it is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the state.  The menu bar at left provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the State (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned interfaces in the State.

The majority of this web site was generated directly from a Turbo Architecture database which defines the architecture for the Connecticut Statewide ITS Architecture.  The source database in Microsoft Access format is also available for download.
