Re: Support for US 50 Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Deployment Project

Dear Mr. Zhang,

This letter is to express SACOG's support for the Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Initiative Funding grant application that Caltrans is submitting for the US 50 Integrated Corridor management (ICM) Project. US 50 ICM is a collaborative effort in multjurisdictional partnership with the cities, counties, and regional agencies along US 50 highway from downtown Sacramento to El Dorado County.

ICM maximizes existing resources and helps agencies come together to implement solutions that benefit the broader region and have bigger impacts than one agency acting alone. Through improved collaboration, proactive system management, and advanced technologies, ICM will contribute to a more integrated and efficient multimodal transportation system.

The partnership based US 50 ICM Project will lay out a strategy to utilize the latest technologies and industry practices to improve multi-modal mobility for the entire corridor.

ICM is one of the congestion management strategies identified as part of SACOG's Congestion Management Process (CMP), which is currently being updated. This project will use technology to assist in the collection, dissemination and use of real-time transportation-related information to reduce congestion and user frustration, improve system reliability and mobility, and provide for more efficient and accessible transportation on the state and local highways, which are key goals of the SACOG region's ITS Master Plan and the congestion management and ITS vision for the region. We hope this initiative will be selected for funding, and thank you for the opportunity to support and partner in this grant application and project.
