Orlando RTMC Recieves Achievement Award
The Orlando Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC) was honored last week for its long-standing cooperation and excellence in monitoring and managing Interstate 4 and other Central Florida roadways. The Intelligent Transportation Society (ITS) of Florida awarded the RTMC with an Outstanding Achievement Award. Aug. 18, the plaque was presented to both the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), which jointly run the center.

The Orlando RTMC opened in 1991, making it the oldest such facility in Florida. The center moved to its current location at 133 S. Semoran Blvd. in 1999. RTMC operators monitor roadway conditions for incident responders, law enforcement, media and the public. The operators relate AMBER Alerts, LEO Alerts and other vital traffic information through roadway message signs and controls variable speed limit sign adjustments on I-4.

The RTMC was honored for its years of successfully honing and facilitating communication and cooperation among FDOT, FHP and other emergency response agencies to quickly and efficiently deal with crashes, congestion and other incidents on Central Florida roadways.

FDOT District Five Secretary Noranne Downs and FHP Major Cynthia Williams accepted the award. Both acknowledged the dedicated and professional RTMC staff who are responsible for the award-winning work.
