Firefighters or other emergency responders working within the right-of-way of a Federal-aid highway and engaged in any other types of operations shall wear high-visibility safety apparel as defined in this rule. The FHWA decided to issue this interim final rule to address safety concerns raised by fire fighting community.

The I-95 Corridor Coalition is an alliance of transportation agencies, toll authorities, and related organizations, including public safety, from the State of Maine to the State of Florida, with affiliate members in Canada. The Coalition provides a forum for key decision and policy makers to address transportation management and operations issues of common interest. This volunteer, consensus-driven organization enables its myriad state, local and regional member agencies to work together to improve transportation system performance far more than they could working individually. The Coalition has successfully served as a model for multi-state/jurisdictional interagency cooperation and coordination for over a decade.

Open Roads Policy

 

The Open Road Policy states that whenever a roadway or travel lane is closed or partially blocked by a traffic incident, the Georgia State Patrol, Department of Transportation, local law enforcement and other public safety agencies and responders will re-open the roadway as soon as possible.

 

Individuals from agencies, cities, counties and businesses endorsing the Open Roads Policy receive recognition as TIME Task Force members.

 
The Georgia Open Roads Policy has been adopted, endorsed or sponsored by the following:
 

 

Atlanta Regional Commission Endorses Georgia Open Roads Policy  (Spring 2012)

 

 

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) recently passed a resolution supporting the Georgia Open Roads Policy, which will boost efforts to reduce the metro area's traffic congestion while increasing driver safety. (READ THE ARC'S RESOLUTION)

  

The Georgia Open Roads Policy states that whenever a roadway or travel lane is closed or partially blocked by a traffic incident, the Georgia State Patrol, Department of Transportation, local law enforcement and other public safety agencies will re-open the roadway as soon as possible and in an urgent manner. Safety of the public and responders is the highest priority and will be preserved.

 

The ARC recognizes the policy's importance in significantly reducing non-recurring delays and secondary crashes. The policy is noted to be consistent with the objectives and strategies of the ARC's PLAN 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, and its goals will be taken into consideration with future transportation projects.

 

The Georgia statewide Open Roads Policy has been signed by the GDOT Commissioner, Department of Public Safety Colonel and is endorsed by the Governor of Georgia. Other agencies endorsing the Georgia Open Roads Policy include the Gwinnett County Police, City of College Park Police, Towing Recovery Association of Georgia, City of Johns Creek and Metro Atlanta Fire Chief's Association. (READ THE STATEWIDE POLICY) 

 

Winning support for the Georgia Open Roads Policy is one of the ongoing efforts of the Traffic Incident Management Enhancement (TIME) Task Force.

 

The TIME Task Force, which is now its 10th year of operation, exists to develop and sustain a region-wide incident management program that facilitates safe and fast roadway clearance, lessening the impact on emergency responders and commuters.

 

The TIME Task Force's leadership includes representatives from the Georgia Department of Transportation, Georgia State Patrol, Federal Highway Administration, Atlanta Regional Commission, Governor's Office of Highway Safety and Towing and Recovery Association of Georgia, among other stakeholders.
