 Signals, ITS and Traffic Operations Section


The Signals and ITS Section is responsible for developing policies, guidelines, standards, procedures, design, and operations for Traffic Signals and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).

Freeway Management Systems (FMS) are a major component of ITS. The primary mission of an FMS is to provide information about congestion and freeway conditions. The FMS provides information to help travelers to make informed decisions, reducing unexpected delays, energy consumption and cost. It also assists emergency personnel to help them provide the best response.

Traffic signs promote highway safety and efficiency by providing for the orderly movement of all road users on streets, highways, and bikeways and private roads open to public travel throughout the Nation.  Traffic signs provide regulation, warning and guidance information to road users using words and symbols to convey the message.

A Speed Zone is a section of highway with a speed limit that is established by law, but which might be different from a legislatively specified statutory speed limit.  Additional information concerning Speed Zones may be found in Section 2B.13 of the Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (OMUTCD) and Chapter 1203 of the ODOT Traffic Engineering Manual (TEM) as well as the Speed Zone website.

In addition to these duties, the Section develops guidance to ensure compliance with applicable regulations.
