ITS Locates Program

This program locates and identifies any state-owned ATMS infrastructure that could be endangered by construction or maintenance projects on state-owned roads. This includes high count fiber optic cabling, power services, and underground enclosures known as pull boxes and ECB’s (electrical communication box). The infrastructure allows the Traffic Management Center to connect to surveillance, and monitoring equipment, as well as traffic signals and city and county Transportation Control Centers.
