Great Lakes Regional Transportation Operations Coalition

Gateway Expansion and Enhancements

Under this project, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) is expanding the Gateway Traveler Information System (GTIS)/Travel Midwest website coverage. The expanded coverage includes interstate routes to the Minneapolis/St. Paul and Detroit metropolitan areas in addition to providing coverage along I-69 and I-96 in Michigan. The goals of this project include automating GTIS connections to other major traffic management and operations centers in the GLRTOC area described above and displaying traveler information (travel times, speed, congestion, construction, incident, special events, etc.) on the Travel Midwest website for areas not currently served. Prior to this project, the GTIS coverage area was the northern portion of Illinois, Southern Wisconsin, Northern Indiana, and Southwest Michigan.
