About

It is always important to get the most out of existing infrastructure.  This requires innovative approaches to optimize the use of roadways, bridges, transit systems, and other transportation assets in order to achieve heightened operational efficiencies.  The programs, projects, and techniques that help achieve this increased efficiency are part of the transportation operations program.

PennDOT Operations CenterHighway safety can be heavily influenced by operational conditions such as traffic congestion, weather, work zones, traffic signal timings, and other factors.  Conversely, crashes and other incidents can have a tremendous impact on operations and congestion.  For this reason, transportation operations and safety planning are often done in tandem to ensure a coordinated approach.

By focusing on maintaining existing infrastructure and maximizing operational efficiencies, SPC’s Transportation Operations and Safety activities support the following Regional Vision Scenario policies in our Region’s Plan:

  • Revitalization and redevelopment of existing communities is a priority.
  • Maintenance of the existing transportation system will be a regional priority.
  • Investment in infrastructure improvement will be coordinated and targeted at the corridor level to optimize the impact of the investment.
  • The region’s transportation system will be actively managed and operated to function at its full potential.
  • Transportation and development choices will prioritize safe and secure multimodal and intermodal networks for people and goods.

TOSF Meetings & Minutes

Operations and Safety MeetingSPC's Transportation Operations and Safety Forum (TOSF) provides a central regional forum to coordinate operations and safety planning and continued development, advancement, and implementation of the Regional Operations Plan and the Regional Safety Plan. To sustain the successful integration of operational objectives in the planning process, it is important that the TOSF institutionalize the process of engaging operating agencies and stakeholders in developing operational objectives and measuring performance. By advancing operations, planners, engineers and operators can help institutionalize the concept of “working together” among transportation agencies, public safety officials, and other public and private sector interests within the SPC region.

Debido a que la seguridad de las autopistas es fuertemente influenciada por las condiciones de operación y los accidentes pueden tener un gran impacto en el congestionamiento, la planificación tanto de las operaciones como de la seguridad se considera por lo general en conjunto para garantizar un enfoque coordinado.

Betrieb & Sicherheit

Die SPC und deren Partner arbeiten daran, innovative Ansätze zu bestimmen und durchführen, um die Effizienz der Straßenwege, Verkehrssysteme und anderer Einrichtungen zu optimieren, um das meiste aus unserer vorhandenen Infrastruktur herauszuholen. Da die Sicherheit auf Schnellstraßen stark von den Betriebsbedingungen beeinflusst wird, und Unfälle eine große Auswirkung auf Stau haben können, werden die Betriebs- und Sicherheitsplanung im Zusammenhang betrachtet, sodass ein koordinierter Ansatz sichergestellt werden kann.
