For the past few years, MetroPlan Orlando has worked with metropolitan planning organizations in the I-4 corridor to promote the application of Transportation Management and Operations (TSMO) strategies. NICR Director Xiaopeng Li and Senior Program Manager Kristine Williams met with Eric Hill, Director of Transportation System Management and Operations for MetroPlan Orlando, to discuss how the National Institute for Congestion Reduction (NICR) at CUTR could contribute to this effort.
The group agreed to work together in the coming months to identify ways that this growing regional coalition could collaborate with NICR to advance TSMO on the corridor.
Growing travel demand on the I-4 corridor continues to cause congestion on this critical east-west connection in Florida, making it an ideal candidate for TSMO research and pilot projects. Stay tuned for more developments on this exciting collaboration!
