Project 12.8
TSMO Practices Peer Exchange

Many agencies are still trying to understand what transportation system management and operations (TSMO) will mean within the context of their daily and long-term operations. Many resources are available to support agencies in this effort including the AASHTO TSMO Guidance which can be used to evaluate agency capabilities in key areas of process and institutional arrangements and to prepare a formal action plan. Some agencies are starting to develop customized plans to identify their desired TSMO framework and the specific actions necessary to implement TSMO practices. South Dakota DOT, for example, has completed their TSMO plan.

This project facilitated a peer exchange webinar on January 23, 2019 to gather information about NWP states' TSMO organizational practices and where they are at in their process of establishing TSMO practices. Three North/West Passage states TSMO activities were highlighted.

  • Minnesota DOT focused on describing the process of gathering stakeholder input from each district and office, the structure of their TSMO plans, and the management of the TSMO planning process in Minnesota.
  • Washington DOT focused on the challenges and lessons learned with getting TSMO efforts started.
  • South Dakota DOT focused on why and how they completed a TSMO plan noting what it is include in their plan and how South Dakota DOT is using the plan.

In addition in a round robin format, each North/West Passage states described what is included in TSMO in their state.
