Indiana 511 Recommendations(cont) : 

11 Indiana 511 Recommendations(cont) Coordinate with surrounding states for switching in border areas Kentucky and Cincinnati 511 already established – consulted during study lNDOT likely to go with Multi-State approach Too early to provide deployment date Still needs Executive Office review/approval

Summary : 

12 Summary Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana have worked cooperatively to develop compatible systems GCM Gateway will be key to interoperability www.gcmtravel.com Looking at statewide systems based largely on existing data Deployment timelines to be determined Stay-tuned!!! 511 coming soon to the Midwest
