The National Operations Center of Excellence is proud to support the exceptional efforts taking place within the Traffic Incident Management (TIM) focus area, all the first responders and transportation operations personnel involved. Too many responders and motorists are dying on America's roads. We must get the Nation to focus on collaborating to reduce this trend. In August 2016, NHTSA released an analysis of 2015 statistics on road crashes. The news surprised those monitoring highway fatalities and injuries.
Message from the Managing Director

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) received five awards from the 2016 Engineering News-Records Mountain States Best Project competition for various transportation projects.
Mountain States Best Project awards are judged based on design and construction quality, contribution to the community and the industry, and how a project overcame unusual challenges through teamwork and collaboration.
The National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE), in partnership with the Transportation Research Board (TRB), is sponsoring a “(#YTSMO) Why Transportation Systems Management and Operations” contest for the “YoungTSMO” generation.
We are looking for students to create a 30-60 second video explaining Y-Transportation Systems Management and Operations matters to them as future TSMO professionals.
The heads of state departments of transportation will consider the impact of the upcoming elections and future federal and state policies as they gather Nov. 12-15 in Boston for the annual meeting of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
With snow already visiting some areas of Pennsylvania, PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards today outlined the agency’s plans for winter services and encouraged drivers to be prepared as well.
In an effort to provide law-enforcement agencies with faster crash reports, the Arizona Department of Transportation is improving its data-collection methods. With more than $350,000 granted from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, ADOT will be able to get more state agencies to use an electronic form for submitting crash reports. The electronic reports will replace the paper ones sent from many agencies all over the state to be manually entered into the system.
