    Statewide, Tennessee

With a booming economy, traffic demand and congestion have increased dramatically in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) operates four major Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) to provide safe and efficient travel statewide. As traffic demand and congestion have increased exponentially due to Tennessee’s booming economy, TDOT turned to Stantec to evaluate the operations and engineer a new system of equipment, networks, and software to address the recurring commuter congestion.

We designed an advanced traffic management system (ATMS) that reflects the most current and cutting-edge research and development available in the industry applications. We worked with all the key stakeholders at TDOT to provide a new ATMS solution, using the federally mandated system engineering analysis approach summarized in a System Engineering Analysis Report (SEAR). Now, we’re deploying the ATMS software with our sub-contractor Southwest Research Institute (SwRI).

We’re engineering a new system of equipment, networks and software to better address commuter congestion and respond to incidents faster and more efficiently. Using the advanced feature in the TMC software will not only save people’s time and money, but more importantly, save many lives.
