Legal Basis

In July 2012, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a final rule to implement section 53005(d) of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21), which requires ITS projects funded through the highway trust fund to conform with the National/Regional ITS Architecture and applicable standards.

In response, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) adopted a policy that requires agencies who receive funding through RTC funding initiatives for ITS projects develop a statement of architecture consistency. The policy aids the implementation of ITS projects by providing regional coordination and review to meet the intent of the federal legislation.  To meet these requirements, stakeholders in the North Central Texas (NCT) Region developed the NCT Regional ITS Architecture.
