With projected population and traffic growth in Nevada, increases in system demand, technological advancements, and limited funding, NDOT recognizes the significance of embracing TSMO to facilitate more comprehensive management and operations of the transportation system. This performance-driven program focuses on the surface transportation system and the policies and business processes that are applied to manage and operate this system.
From project conception through maintenance, the current management and operation of the transportation system are performed in a compartmentalized manner, within respective departmental disciplines. The TSMO Program introduces an innovative approach by integrating multiple disciplines, breaking down unproductive barriers, and formalizing processes to maximize collaboration among NDOT divisions.
Strategies offered by TSMO are used to proactively address transportation challenges (such as recurring and/or non-recurring congestion, safety, mobility, and reliability). This performance-driven program focuses on the surface transportation system and the policies, business processes, technologies, infrastructure, and systems that are applied to manage and operate this system more efficiently. A summary of the business case for TSMO and a discussion of some TSMO strategies as they relate to the challenges Nevada is provided below:
