The Statewide Transportation Management Center (STMC) is a 24/7 Operations Center jointly operated and staffed by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and the New Jersey State Police.  Co-location affords simple and effective “region-wide” coordination of traffic incidents and emergencies in an interoperable manner.  Each of the agencies manages its own roadways from the STMC, but is supported by a technology base that shares information and video across agency boundaries. Using the latest technology which leverages legacy applications, this center provides accurate and timely information to the motorists.  This new center became operational in April 2008.
