ITS-CT was founded in 1997 by Connecticut members of the Intelligent
Transportation Society of America in an effort to form a forum
for engineers, consultants and government agencies in Connecticut
to exchange and share the most recent knowledge in the field
of Intelligent Transportation Systems. Currently, ITS-CT has
over 30 members (entities) and is an active chapter of ITS
Message from the President
Dear Fellow Members,
Since 1997, we’ve continually discovered and shared our most recent advancements in the application of ITS technology. The success of our organization hinges on the practical and forward-thinking viewpoints offered by every member of our team.
As we’ve seen in the past, our ambitions do not always reflect the nature of reality. Circumstances beyond our control continually cause funding to limit our objectives. This is our greatest challenge, but it is also our greatest motivation.
Traffic congestion is an ever increasing issue on our major highways. Congestion correlates with the effectiveness of our transportation systems. We have a responsibility to balance our resources with the goals of our organization.
With this in mind, I encourage our chapter members to continue their support and participation in our meetings and projects. Through these gatherings, we’ve accomplished several key objectives for the transportation industry in our state.
In November 2011, Connecticut DOT Commissioner James Redeker presented the revised Transportation Infrastructure Capital Plan to Gov. Malloy. The plan outlines several critical and pressing needs for the next five years, and it gave ITS Connecticut some valuable insight into allocated funding for ITS projects. We are grateful for the leadership and efforts of Gov. Malloy and the Legislature to invest in our infrastructure. With their support, our organization will continue to seek innovations in project delivery, cost reduction and quality.
We might not always share perspectives, but we all share a passion for our industry which fuels the success of this chapter.
Thank you for your support and I encourage you to visit our sponsors’ websites.
