National ITS Architecture Consistency Meetings

AGENCIES: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit 
Administration (FTA), DOT.

ACTION: Supplemental notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This is a supplemental notice to 63 FR 5,603 published on 
February 3, 1998, announcing a series of regional meetings at which DOT 
will discuss national ITS architecture consistency as it relates to 
federally funded highway and transit improvements that incorporate 
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). It is anticipated that the 
upcoming surface transportation reauthorization bill will require 
federally funded projects which contain ITS elements to be consistent 
with the National ITS Architecture and approved standards. In 
anticipation, DOT is holding a series of outreach meetings to engage a 
broad range of stakeholders in discussions regarding consistency 
requirements. These meetings will be of interest to those involved in 
the planning, design and implementation of technology applications in 
transportation. Locations and dates for the regional meetings are as 
follows:

Boston--February 25-26
Los Angeles--March 18-19
Houston--March 25-26
Kansas City--April 1-2
Washington DC Area--April 6-7
Atlanta--April 9-10
Denver--April 14-15
Portland--April 29-30
Chicago--May 13-14
New York--May 19-20.

    Specific locations for the Washington DC Area, Atlanta, Denver, 
Portland, Chicago and New York meetings will be published at a later 
date.

DATES AND TIMES: The Los Angeles meeting will be held March 18-19, 
1998, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on March 18th and from 8:30 a.m. to 
12:00 p.m. on March 19th. The Houston area meeting will be held March 
25-26, 1998, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on March 25th and from 8:00 
a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on March 26th. The Kansas City meeting will be held 
April 1-2, 1998, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on April 1st and from 8:00

Marriott, 700 West Convention Way, Anaheim, CA 92802. The Houston 
meeting will be held at the Double Tree Hotel, 2001 Post Oak Boulevard, 
Houston, TX 77056. The Kansas City meeting will be held at The Westin 
Crown Center, One Pershing Road, Kansas City, MO 64108.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National ITS Architecture is a master 
blueprint for building an integrated, multimodal, intelligent 
transportation system. It provides a common framework that define key 
elements required for ITS functions. As such, it is an invaluable 
resource for planners, builders, designers, and operators of highway 
and transit systems to use in extending and integrating their systems 
operations.
    A general introduction to ITS will be provided, but presentations 
will assume a basic awareness of technology applications in 
transportation. The meetings will include a brief introduction to the 
National ITS Architecture and associated standards, current thinking by 
DOT on possible approaches to consistency, and breakout sessions for 
discussion among attendees on consistency-related issues.
