The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT), conducted a two-day workshop for traffic incident management (TIM) practitioners in the Providence, RI metropolitan area, as a part of the FHWA TIM Workshop effort. The workshops bring together multi-disciplinary practitioners in the top 40 metropolitan areas to: (1) discuss the state of their TIM programs; (2) identify ways to improve their TIM operations; (3) collect good practices and lessons learned from the participants; and (4) provide information on the latest national information on FHWA-endorsed good practices and processes. The workshop resulted in the following description of the TIM Program in the Providence area and an action plan that outlines the steps the region will take to enhance its TIM program.
