ITS Heartland Corridor Coalition awarded MCOMP Grant!

The ITS Heartland Corridor Coalition has been awarded an $800,000 grant by the U.S. DOT as part of the Multi State Corridor Operations and Management Program.  The grant will be used by the ITS Heartland Corridor Coalition to fund projects related to providing real-time data on rural freeways to users and the development of a regional ATIS data collection and distribution system.  The ITS Heartland Corridor Coalition is a cooperative coalition of five states and the ITS Heartland Chapter of ITS America.  The five states involved are Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.  Sarah Tracy, ITS Engineer at the Nebraska Department of Roads and President of ITS Heartland, made the announcement and expressed the gratitude of ITS Heartland towards the U.S. DOT for selecting ITS Heartland as a recipient.  “We consider the ITS Heartland five-state region to be the crossroads of the nation with respect to the movement of people and commercial goods throughout the country.  This grant will help us to make that movement safer and more efficient for all.”  The ITS Heartland Corridor Coalition is expected to release RFPs for the anticipated work within the next few months.
