The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), conducted a workshop for traffic incident management (TIM) practitioners in the St. Louis, MO, 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 St. Louis area and an action plan that outlines the steps the region will take to enhance its TIM program.

Current TIM Program Status:

A TIM committee that focuses on the I-270 corridor meets every other month and regularly conducts incident debriefs.

MoDOT operates a full-function freeway service patrol (FSP) referred to as the Motorist Assist program.

The MoDOT Traffic Management Center (TMC) and Gateway Guide program proactively provide traffic management and traveler information.
