Appendix F. Top Sites To Benefit From Collaboration

FHWA has an interest in encouraging State and local TMCs, EOCs, and FCs to establish more effective communication links and promote information sharing. Some metropolitan areas already have at least one TMC, EOC, and FC in close proximity to each other, creating a situation where each of the three centers would likely have interest in similar information, the bulk of which was discussed in Chapter 3 of this guidebook.

Table F-1 provides a list of sites where collaboration between TMCs, EOCs, and FCs would most likely be successful. These sites were chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Metropolitan area
  • Established TMC, EOC, and FC in close proximity to each other
  • Robust TMC that will be able to provide transportation-related information to the EOC and FC.

Some of the sites on this list already work closely with the other sites in their vicinity through partnerships and information-sharing agreements. In addition to outlining potential areas where greater connectivity could be achieved, the list also provides a resource for lesser-developed sites as to the potential sites on which new information-sharing programs might be based.
