Project 5.3
Consistent and Coordinated DMS Use

Project 5.3 began with the intent to establish a set of operating guidelines to support coordinated use of dynamic message signs (DMS) throughout the North/West Passage corridor during major events. Information about DMS locations, operating procedures and messages was gathered from each of the states.

A workshop was held on May 19-20, 2011 for the states to discuss the need for coordinated DMS use, individual state guidelines on DMS use, locations of DMS and message options. During the workshop the states determined that coordination during major events would also include other traveler information tools such as highway advisory radio (HAR), social media, 511 telephone and web services. The operational guideline and map tool resulting from this discussion encompasses all traveler information tools in the states. It is expected that each state will incorporate this high-level guideline into their own guidelines and standard operating procedures.
