The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six SunGuide® Transportation Management Center (TMC) operates a series of traffic management services to provide motorists with a transportation system that is safe, efficient and capable of meeting real-time traveler demands.
The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program provides the SunGuide TMC operations staff with the tools to collect traffic information and manage roadway conditions from within the center. Through the use of electronic technologies deployed along our highways, the ITS Program allows the TMC to operate several interrelated services that together, are improving the efficiency of our existing highway system. TMC operations staff plan, manage and operate the district’s incident management services to reduce the adverse effects of traffic events along our highways. To enhance this effort, the TMC also manages the district’s traveler information program and posts up-to-the minute traffic reports to help motorists avoid delays and reduce congestion. Additionally, the TMC manages traffic demand through the daily operations of the 95 Express and Ramp Signaling Systems. The combined benefits of these services are providing our transportation system with meaningful solutions to the problem of traffic congestion.
