Project 14.1
Operations Task Force – Year 7

North/West Passage has supported an Operations Task Force for six years. The intent of the task force is to establish relationships, enhance the scope of operations-oriented projects, support further implementation of project findings, and increase interaction among the states outside of major events.

This project continued to support the task for another year (September 2019 - September 2020). Tasks include coordinating and facilitating operations-oriented, maintenance operations, and Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) related topics for discussion during task force webinars.
