PAG is taking a more proactive role in regional transportation operations by leading local jurisdictions in planning for and implementing coordinated operations programs and projects. For the PAG region, this means developing and realizing opportunities for improved traffic signal coordination, traveler information consolidation and delivery, work zone coordination, traffic incident management and pavement rehabilitation throughout the region.
PAG coordinates a Regional Pavement Management System and has recently developed "action plans" for specific transportation operations areas as part of a Regional Concept for Transportation Operations. Local agencies have embraced the concept of regional transportation operations and have gained from programs that enable more frequent traffic signal timing review and adjustment, improvements to construction and traffic incident data for the public, training and exercises to coordinate multi-agency traffic incident response, and pavement inventory collection and rehabilitation.
