Operators are responsible for assessing all incoming traffic data and determining, in real-time, the content and priority of traffic reporting. They are the primary point of contact for incident management coordination. Operators provide information to the traveling public related to current travel conditions, maintain traffic interruption reports and manage incidents on the metropolitan roadways from the Statewide Traffic Operations Control Room (STOC).
Operators assess large volumes of data (both static and real-time) from a wide variety of sources to detect possible roadway incidents. They monitor the ATMS, check road sensor data and confirm the data using CCTV video. Effective communication is an important part of this process as Operators maintain telephone or radio communications with incident responders, DOT field personnel and other public and private agencies. Once assessment is complete, Operators determine the facts and severity of traffic incidents and prepares the information for dissemination to the motoring public.
In addition, Operators are responsible for the maintenance, quality, accuracy and timeliness of all information disseminated, including CMS and fax/notification messages. Operators maintain contact with DSP Radio Operator/Dispatchers and local authorities to verify and update information regarding ongoing incidents, associated backups/traffic delays and estimated clearance time.
