The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), conducted a one and a half day advanced workshop for traffic incident management (TIM) practitioners in the Denver, CO metropolitan area, as a part of the FHWA TIM Workshop effort. The workshops bring together multi-disciplinary mid-level managers 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 the latest national information on FHWA-endorsed good practices and processes. The workshop resulted in the following description of the TIM Program in the Denver area and an action plan that outlines the steps the region will take to enhance its TIM program.

Current TIM Program Status:

Incident Management Plans (IMPs) have been developed by CDOT for multiple corridors around the state. The plans were developed with input from local responders.

CDOT’s Transportation Management Center (CTMC) and the local city/county TMCs share data and provide traffic management and traveler information. Enhance awareness of the capabilities of Transportation Management Centers (TMCs) as an incident management resource and their role in managing traffic at both local and regional levels.

CDOT operates a contracted freeway service patrol, referred to as the Courtesy Patrol, during the peak periods.
