Webinar – Smart Traffic Management: Lessons from New York City’s Midtown in Motion Project

Date:   April 18, 2013
Time:  1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET
In summer 2011, the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) kicked off the Midtown in Motion (MiM) project.
The purpose of the MiM project is to promote multimodal mobility in the midtown core of Manhattan – a 110 square block area or “zone” from 2nd to 6th Avenues and from 42nd to 57th Streets. The MiM project integrates features of Active Traffic Management (ATM) and the full capabilities of the NYCDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Infrastructure; a recent deployment of advanced solid-state traffic controllers (ASTCs) and a comprehensive network of sensors (e.g. video, microwave, and electronic toll collection readers), a wireless communication system, and the New York City Traffic Control System software system, which manages the project.
