The comprehensive traffic surveillance study for the New York State Thruway Authority (NYSTA) began in late September 1993. The project involved the study of available traffic management and Intelligent Highway Systems (ITS) techniques and strategies that would be employed along the Tappan Zee Bridge corridor along the I-287 highway corridor, one of their growing and most intensely-used corridors, and managed from a new Traffic Operations Center. Because such technologies are just on the horizon, disseminating information to the public and coordinating with other agencies will spawn new methods to publicize their system that perhaps have not yet been used and may be of interest to other agencies and their consultants around the country.
