Awareness & Outreach
In the context of a traffic signal program, the purpose of awareness and outreach is to communicate the function of traffic signals, traffic signal systems and the outcome of program activities and investments. These communications need not be formal or highly produced but should be concise, factual and closely related to the interest of the public, agency management, policy makers and elected officials. The links below provide examples of awareness and outreach efforts by State, regional and local agencies to relate the benefits of their traffic signal management, operations and maintenance programs.
For detailed information on lessons learned, cost and deployment statistics related to arterial/traffic signal management and operation the Research and innovative Technology Administration (RITA) has compiled several databases that are regularly updated. Each database can be browsed by application area; ITS Lessons Learned Knowledge Resource, the ITS Costs Database, the ITS Deployment Statistics Database.
