Slide 1:  Innovative Approaches to Real-Time System Management Information

[This slide contains a photograph of Kevin North.]

Slide 2:  Outline

Slide 3:  Background

[This slide contains a screenshot of a slide from the RTSMIP kick-off meeting from April 2, 2014.]

Slide 4:  Background

Slide 5:  Caltrans Districts and Planning Agencies

[This slide contains two maps: (1) a county map of California color coded to highlight the twelve Caltrans Districts and (2) a map of California that shows the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOS) and Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPAs).]

Slide 6:  TMC Configuration

[This slide contains a map of California, color coded into three areas: Valley, Southern, and Coastal. Regional TMC (black squares), Urban TMC (hollow circles), and Satellite Operations Centers (solid black circles) are marked on the map.]

Slide 7:  Accuracy

Slide 8:  Example: Construction Accuracy

[This slide contains a four-bar vertical bar chart that displays the accuracy of closure statuses during construction in April 2014. Each bar is made contains light blue and dark blue segments. The light blue represents the closures that are not accurately statused. The dark blue represents the closures that are accurately statused. The goal is 85% accuracy compliance. The first bar indicates that 12% of closures are not accurately statused and 88% are accurately statused for all district permits. The second bar indicates that 9% of closures are not accurately statused and 91% are accurately statused for all district construction. The third bar indicates that 9% of closures are not accurately statused and 91% are accurately statused for all district maintenance. The fourth bar indicates that 9% of closures are not accurately statused and 91% are accurately statused for overall construction, permits, and maintenance.]

Slide 9:  Example: Construction Accuracy

[This slide contains a table and mathematical formulas that explain the FHWA Accuracy Compliance Report-Planned Closures Statewide in April 2014. The formulas calculate the accuracy rate and the error rate.]
