Mobility and Systems Engineering


The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) Bureau of Mobility and Systems Engineering (MSE), formerly Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Engineering, supports Transportation Mobility (TSM), formerly Statewide Traffic Operations, by managing the development, implementation, and support for ITS initiatives. These initiatives include integrated traffic signal systems, incident management systems, traffic management systems, traffic information systems and other ITS components, including but not limited to computerized arterial traffic signals, Dynamic/Variable Message Signs, closed circuit television surveillance and phone systems, traffic movement detectors, and a fiber optic communication network.

During the initial development of any project along State highways the Project Manager, designer, or developer must check for existing ITS facilities as provided in the ITS Devices Inventory, and then obtain as-built information to confirm any potential impacts and contact MSE on directions for addressing those impacts. Proposed work in the vicinity of the fiber network must be confirmed through field markouts. The ITS Devices Inventory site also includes contacts for directions on ITS devices administered by other units within NJDOT.

Development and construction of any ITS facility must be in conformance with the New Jersey Statewide ITS Architecture (pdf 3.5m) and TSM Procedure Manual.

General information regarding NJDOT's overall ITS plan is provided in the ITS Ten-Year Investment Strategy (pdf 597k).

Consultants and developers need to use Base Saturation Flow Rate (BSFR) values for the purpose of traffic analysis based on the region.

These values were obtained as a result of a study done by MSE and NJIT. This study and its findings are provided at Base Sat Flow Rate.
