Resources - Traffic Management System and Centers

This page provides access to technical resources agencies can use to improve the capabilities and performance of traffic management manage systems (TMSs) and centers (TMCs). These systems and TMCs control traffic through the application of policies, operational strategies, traffic control plans, or other actions to improve the safety and mobility of travelers using the surface transportation system. They allow agencies to share information with other systems, service providers and travelers in support of mitigating any potential impacts resulting from adverse weather, environmental conditions, or non-recurring events (e.g., special events, incidents).
