A new website with a plethora of ways for transportation officials to communicate and learn has been launched, industry representatives announced.

The National Operations Center of Excellence is a new, comprehensive technical resources center launched during the annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 11.

The NOCoE will help transportation professionals use state-of-the-art, real-time proactive management techniques to improve safety and system reliability, combat congestion and better serve the traveling public.

The center is a collaboration among American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Intelligent Transportation Society of America with support from the Federal Highway Administration.

The National Operations Center of Excellence will offer an array of peer exchanges, webinars, assessments, on-call assistance, and training on topics such as integrated corridor management, active traffic management, traffic management centers and incident response.

"I am very proud that AASHTO and our partners conceived, planned, funded and launched the Center in just two years," said Don Hunt, executive director of the Colorado Department of Transportation and chairman of the NOCoE Board of Directors.

"The Center will be invaluable to a range of public and private entities working to improve the operational performance of the transportation system. The knowledge sharing benefits of the Center are critically important as we enter a period of rapid technological shifts in transportation," said Hunt.

What's Offered

"Transportation professionals in general and our State DOT members in particular will benefit from the professional assistance, technical resources and support to be provided by the center," said Bud Wright, executive director of AASHTO.

"The knowledge sharing benefits of the Center are critically important as we enter a period of rapid technological shifts in transportation," said Don Hunt, executive director of the Colorado Department of Transportation and chairman of the NOCoE Board of Directors.

The website includes case studies, a knowledge center, links to key sites, discussion forums and a comprehensive calendar.

Sharing Best Practices

The Institute of Transportation Engineers provided specific assistance to the center's website, which was developed through the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2).

Thomas W. Brahms, ITE executive director and CEO, said, "Our expectation is that the Center will provide resources to improve the transportation experience of the traveling public to enable them to get where they want to go in a timely, safe, and reliable manner.

"This new partnership brings together the transportation community's different perspectives by sharing best practices, good and bad experiences to form lessons learned as well as engaging a network of peers to improve the operation of the transportation system for all users."
