Interface: Ohio Turnpike Central Dispatch - Ohio Turnpike Maintenance Dispatch
Architecture Flow Definitions
current infrastructure restrictions (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Restrictions levied on transportation asset usage based on infrastructure design, surveys, tests, or analyses. This includes standard facility design height, width, and weight restrictions, special restrictions such as spring weight restrictions, and temporary facility restrictions that are imposed during maintenance and construction.
equipment maintenance request (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Identification of field equipment requiring repair and known information about the associated faults.
equipment maintenance status (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Current status of field equipment maintenance actions.
field device coordination (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Coordination between operating centers that share control of the same field devices. This flow supports coordination to prevent conflicts and allow cooperative management of shared devices.
incident information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large–scale natural or human–caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi–jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.
maint and constr resource request (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Request for road maintenance and construction resources that can be used in the diversion of traffic (cones, portable signs), clearance of a road hazard, repair of ancillary damage, or any other incident response. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre–staging, staging, or immediate dispatch of resources.
maint and constr resource response (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Current status of maintenance and construction resources including availability and deployment status. General resource inventory information covering vehicles, equipment, materials, and people and specific resource deployment status may be included.
road network conditions (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included.
road weather information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Road conditions and weather information that are made available by road maintenance operations to other transportation system operators.
work zone information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards
Summary of maintenance and construction work zone activities affecting the road network including the nature of the maintenance or construction activity, location, impact to the roadway, expected time(s) and duration of impact, anticipated delays, alternate routes, and suggested speed limits. This information may be augmented with images that provide a visual indication of current work zone status and traffic impacts.
