This facility is shared by four entities: The Greater Rochester International Airport, Monroe County Department of Transportation, New York State Department of Transportation and the New York State Police. The airport portion houses runway and apron maintenance for heavy equipment.
The operations center is designed in a way so that all of the work stations are focused on a large screen that displays all traffic signal and flow information and is capable of displaying real-time video. Behind the large projection screen is the room for central communications and the computer center that links the NYS DOT, County DOT and NYS Police.
The facility and system serve to increase public safety on state and county roadways through monitoring traffic flow, signal problems, accidents and weather conditions, and reacting to this information by dispatching police or maintenance vehicles, controlling signal frequency or other actions.
The MCDOT & NYSDOT Signals Maintenance Divisions occupy the central portion of the facility. The NYS Police Troop E has relocated there, as well. Their communications section has become an integral part of the final part of the project—creation of a Traffic Operations Center/Traffic Control Center.
