The HELP program, which operates in Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville, is a core component of the Tennessee Department of Transportation‘s (TDOT) SmartWay Program. The purpose of HELP is to minimize traffic congestion, promote the safe movement of people and products, and improve the travel environment. SmartWay proactively monitors the highways to maximize traffic flow and inform area travelers of abnormal conditions. This is accomplished using field devices, software, and Smartway partners to gather and disseminate real-time traveler information. The SmartWay Program traffic cameras are operated from TDOT’s four regional Transportation Management Centers (TMC).

This annual report describes the operations of TDOT’s HELP Program summarizing the work accompanied by the HELP personnel during the past fiscal year beginning July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2014. Other divisions within TDOT, along with other state and local agencies, also played critical roles in keeping Tennessee’s roadways operating efficiently and safely.
