"Southeast Nebraska stakeholders working together on technology applications to mitigate congestion, enhance mobility, and improve safety throughout the region."


This site provides an introduction to Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and explains how a plan is being developed to provide the architecture, or system organization and interconnection structure, for ITS in the southeast portion of Nebraska.

The Southeast Nebraska Regional ITS Architecture will encompass all communities and interested organizations within the following 13 counties in Southeast Nebraska: Butler, Saunders, Seward, Lancaster, Cass, Otoe, Saline, Gage, Johnson, Nemaha, Jefferson, Pawnee and Richardson.

ITS uses modern information and communication technologies to mitigate congestion, enhance mobility, and improve safety on roadways. The purpose of regional ITS architecture is to identify integrated systems and opportunities for integration.

Click on ITS Applications for information about how ITS can enhance traffic signal systems, weather information and other systems used by various road users. The Project Schedule shows the steps that will be taken to complete the Regional ITS Architecture for southeast Nebraska. The web site also identifies Stakeholders in the project and explains how you can participate in the development of the plan. Newsletters explain project purpose, goals, and progress.

The primary purpose of this project is to provide an opportunity for agencies to plan, develop and deploy ITS in a coordinated consistent manner. Public agencies and interested private entities and special interest groups are encouraged to participate in the planning process. Benefits of a collaborative approach to ITS include:

  • Optimal use of funding
  • Eliminate duplication of efforts
  • Promote coordination with ITS in adjacent regions within Nebraska and beyond.
This web site for the Southeast Nebraska Regional ITS Architecture Project was established to encourage easy access, timely review, and use of the documents and materials by project stakeholders.

Project stakeholder feedback is invaluable in developing an ITS Plan and Architecture that reflects the transportation system vision for the southeast Nebraska Region. Iteris, Inc. is performing this work effort under a contract with the City of Lincoln/MPO, in close consultation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR), and Lancaster County.
