These Traffic Management Teams (TMTs) are responsible for the establishment of positive control measures and the orderly flow of traffic impacted by unusual or unexpected traffic conditions caused by an incident or event. TMTs coordinate closely with Transportation Management Centers, the California Highway Patrol, and Caltrans Maintenance. Trained traffic management personnel assess and monitor the situation and implement traffic management strategies in an effort to prevent secondary accidents and reduce delay. Through the use of changeable message signs, highway advisory radios, and other traffic information services, TMTs furnish real-time traffic information to motorists approaching the scene of an incident or event. TMTs also provide queue management, traffic advisory, and detour signing for both Caltrans Maintenance- and Construction-initiated planned lane closures.

Available resources include a TMT Policy Statement, an incident report form, and several duty statements.
