Vermont Awarded Transportation Technology Grant to Enhance Regional Travel Information

Congratulations to Vermont for receiving a $1 million federal grant to further its innovative travel management and information programs, benefitting the State of Vermont as well as other New England States. The “Accelerate Innovation Deployment” program award will help the tri-state region of Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire implement an Advanced Transportation Management System and Traveler Information System providing state-of-the-art traveler information services to the public. Additionally, Vermont will install adaptive signals to adjust for traffic levels, and will link to the Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) in use by other I-95 Corridor Coalition member states.

“At VTrans we are aggressively pursuing innovation and efficiency in our work as well as improved customer service,” stated VTrans Deputy Secretary, Sue Minter. “This new system will significantly improve service to travelers in Vermont, as well as customers of our neighboring states and travelers throughout the region,” she said.

Robert T. White, the Senior Manager for the Vermont Agency of Transportation Maintenance and Operations Bureau Technical Services Section, is working with his counterparts in other states to advance the region’s travel information system. White noted, “Reaching beyond jurisdictional boundaries, to provide timely and accurate travel information and traffic management for the long- distance traveler, is a goal of our State and of the I-95 Corridor Coalition. We look forward to the continued sharing of our travel information and our program – its successes and lessons learned - with states throughout the I-95 corridor.”
