  2. “STIX” An I-95 Corridor Coalition Project Southern Traffic Incident eXchange

  3. I-95 Corridor Coalition A Little About Us… • Encompasses Entire State Geographies through which Interstate 95 traverses from Maine to Florida • 21% of Nation’s road miles; 35% of Nation’s VMT • 565 million long-distance trips • 5.3 billion tons of freight A Successful Model for Interagency Cooperation and Coordination Since the Early 1990’s

  4. Why STIX?The Issue Back in 2007, the Southern Region had no formal interfaces to effectively coordinate inter-jurisdictional incident and traffic management activities such as hurrican evacuation, contraflow operations, and major incidents.

  5. The Solution: STIXA Brief History 2007: I-95 Corridor Coalition conducted IM Stakeholder consensus-building to develop a program for interstate incident notification, information sharing, and inter-jurisdictional/ inter-disciplinary coordination among NC, SC, FL, and GA 26 Stakeholder TMC interviews completed in FL, SC, NC, and GA Over a dozen other meetings/visits with related organizations Formal commitments from all four states MOU between I-95CC and GDOT for central operations through the Atlanta TMC - The central location where major incident information is collected and distributed throughout the Southern Region

  6. The Solution: STIXA Brief History- continued - • 2008: STIX implementedto organize communication among the Southern States during major incidents, severe weather, and planned and other events that could have multi-state impacts or impacts on multi-state travelers • Communications via existing phone and email • Project Phase 2 = Continued Outreach, Stakeholder Forums, After Action Reviews, and First Year Operations (2009)

  7. STIXSome Operational Guidelines • STIX is activated during any major event, closure, accident, or other incident using the 50 mile-an-hour rule • Motorists should be notified 50 miles from the incident scene for each hour of anticipated incident duration. For example, an incident with an estimated duration of 2 hours should have alerts extending 100 miles upstream and also downstream if congestion occurs due to rubbernecking. • Use Common Sense -- If the event has potential to affect travelers in other states, activate STIX. • STIX applies to all interstates within Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, not just I-95. • STIX is activated from a TMC to STIX Central Operations at the Atlanta TMC • Telephone: 1-877-HWYSTIX (877-499-7849) • Email: STIX@dot.ga.gov
