ITS Evaluation Phase 3 (2010)

Description: This report documents the results of applying a previously developed, standardized approach for evaluating intelligent transportation systems (ITS) projects to 17 ITS earmark projects. The evaluation approach was based on a questionnaire to investigate technical, management, and organizational lessons learned. The report includes an evaluation report for each of the 17 ITS projects. Each report includes a discussion of the following:

• Background
• Project description
• System usage and benefits
• Cost, operations and maintenance
• Architecture and standards
• Lessons learned.

Most of the lessons learned in this evaluation phase were similar to those documented in previous evaluations.
