Project managers working in Project Development utilize the ADOT project-management process to deliver ITS projects through the PS&E phase and continue to monitor the projects through construction.
Tools developed to enhance the process include FMS Communications Master Plan, FMS Design Guidelines and Ramp Meter Guidelines. In addition, designers use ADOT Standard Drawings and Specifications.
The Project Development section is responsible for ITS projects in Phoenix and throughout the state. Types of ITS projects include Freeway Management System (FMS) expansion, Dynamic Message Sign (DMS) installations and other projects as needed. In the Phoenix area, projects are defined on the Phoenix Freeway Management System Field Implementation map and developed through the state budget process. The list of Current Advertisements provides an excellent overview of existing projects. Project Development also works closely with other agencies with their ITS projects, such as the Regional Community Network (see RCN Newsletter 1 and RCN Newsletter 2).
