The Lexington Area Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture is a roadmap for the deployment and integration of ITS in the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) planning area for the next ten years. The Lexington Area MPO planning area, defined as the region in this Architecture, geographically covers Fayette County, Jessamine County, and a very small portion of Scott County in central Kentucky.
The architecture was developed through a cooperative effort by the region's transportation agencies, covering all modes and all roads in the region. It represents a shared vision of how each agency's systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travelers in the region.
The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of the region's transportation organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost–effectively build an integrated transportation system over time.
The purpose of this regional ITS architecture web site is to encourage use of the regional ITS architecture and gather feedback so that the architecture is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the region. The menu bar at left provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the region (the Inventory), the transportation–related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned integration opportunities in the region.
