Current Activities:

During 2009, the Transportation Subcommittee continued its oversight of the New Road Centerline and Road Network Development efforts being done at the Department of Transportation (DOT) where a significant majority of the interstates have been completed.  This new road network will contain all levels of roadways, be fully addressed, and will have full routing capabilities inclusive of restrictions.  This effort will coordinate with the Connecticut DOT's efforts which are already underway in development and production.  Staff has been working to add the State and US Roadways, along with the major upper functional classified local roadways, all toward meeting a set deadline for the DOT's submittal of the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) to FHWA at the end of June 2010.

The Subcommittee will continue to focus on developing a set of Transportation data standards recommendations to the GIS Council (CGISC).

Any input or comment on these initiatives would be greatly appreciated and can be directed to:
