New Jersey Traffic Incident Management Strategic Plan

New Jersey DOT

The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to provide a framework for agencies to organize and conduct current and future TIM efforts, and to evolve these efforts into a formal long-term sustained program. It should be noted that this Plan was designed for use on limited access highways; nevertheless, this guidance can also be applied to local roads and jurisdictions. While the primary focus of the TIM Program is managing traffic incidents, the same coordination and communication lessons are essential to successfully manage large-scale emergencies, such as severe weather, national security threats, and special events (e.g., sporting, entertainment, political, tourist, etc.).
The New Jersey Statewide TIM Steering Committee supports this Strategic Plan so that TIM stakeholders will have guidelines in place that outline the essential components and improvements needed to move forward in the future and maintain a robust TIM program.

The topics of the Plan include:
• TIM Plan Purpose
• Members of the TIM Steering Committees
• TIM Program Objectives
• TIM Process
• Roles and Responsibilities of TIM Stakeholders
• Current TIM initiatives in New Jersey
• Training
• TIM Action Plan
