Florida's RTMCs are the nerve centers for disseminating information to the traveling public. FDOT has taken a leadership role in the deployment of ITS infrastructures throughout the state, including RTMCs in major metropolitan areas. The map below provides
links to information for each RTMC. Additionally, the RTMC locations, with links, are listed below the map.

District 3's Northwest Florida SunGuide Center (Chipley RTMC) is located at 1074 Highway 90, Chipley, FL 32428. This state-of-the art facility is Florida’s regional transportation management
center (RTMC) for operations and management of Florida’s District 3 roadways. This $24.3 million RTMC is powered by a fiber optic network stretching 235 miles along I-10, from the western Alabama/Florida State line in Escambia
County to the end of the Jefferson County line at MM 235. Also covered are six miles of I-110, 56 miles of US 231, from the northern Alabama/Florida State line into Bay County, and nine miles of US 90, from the US 231 intersection
to the RTMC.
District 3 and the City of Tallahassee have a Joint Partnership Agreement whereby the city agrees to perform Active Arterial Management (AAM) system performance on the state arterials from what is
known as the Satellite Transportation Management Center (STMC). The STMC occupies a portion of the 90,000 square foot, multi-purpose Leon County-City of Tallahassee Public Safety Complex, which is located on a ten-acre site along
Easterwood Drive adjacent to the existing Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross.For more information on District 3, contact Amy DiRusso at Amy.Dirusso@dot.state.fl.us.

The District Four TSM&O RTMC is located at 2300 West Commercial Boulevard, in Fort Lauderdale and is collocated with the Broward County Traffic Engineering Division. The TSM&O RTMC is staffed 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
RTMC operators monitor traffic conditions along I-95, I-595, I-75 in Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties and most recently began monitoring 112 miles of arterial roadway in Broward County. District

The Palm Beach TSM&O TMC is located at 2300 N. Jog Road, in West Palm Beach. It is staffed part-time, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Palm Beach TSM&O TMC is collocated with the Palm Beach County Traffic Engineering
Division, where operators monitor traffic and provide incident management along 59 miles of arterial roadway in Palm Beach County. The Palm Beach TSM&O TMC serves as a secondary location for emergency operations during hurricanes
and other severe weather events.

The District 5’s state-of-the-art RTMC is located at 4975 Wilson Road, Sanford, FL 32771. This hurricane-ready facility serves as the nerve center for traffic management across the nine counties of Florida
Department of Transportation’s District Five. Located in Seminole County, the 44,994-square-foot building is a high-tech headquarters that houses more than 100 traffic managers, Florida Highway Patrol Troop D dispatchers,
and other staffers. Aided by huge banks of video screens, they monitor highways and roads with the help of hundreds of highway camera feeds, thousands of live data streams from roadway sensors, and ongoing communications with first
responders. This system includes the operation of hundreds of closed-circuit television cameras, dynamic message signs, and vehicle detector sensors on I-4, I-95, I-75, SR 408, SR 417, SR 429, SR 528, and other arterial state roads
via the extensive fiber optic network. Operating 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the RTMC monitors traffic and coordinates responses to incidents and crashes on 795 miles of highways and state roads in Central Florida. Other
RTMC operations include information dissemination to Florida 511, www.fl511.com web site, and Road Ranger service patrol dispatch. This location has been operational since 2019.

Florida's Turnpike Enterprise
Florida's Turnpike Enterprise operates two Regional Traffic Management Centers (RTMCs) within the state and provides liaison staff to one of the Florida Highway Patrol’s regional communications centers. RTMCs
are located along the mainline in South Florida at the Pompano Beach Turnpike Operations Center at Mile Post 65, and in Central Florida at the Turkey Lake (Orlando) Headquarters complex at Mile Post 263. The FHP co-location is
at the Lake Worth Regional Communications Center (LWRCC) at Mile Post 94.
The RTMCs are the central facilities for the control, monitoring and management of Turnpike traffic, and are operational 24/7. Our dedicated staff is trained to operate nearly 2,200 ITS devices such as electronic message boards,
CCTV cameras and traffic sensors to monitor and respond to changing conditions on the nearly 500 miles that comprise the Turnpike system. The original Pompano Beach RTMC came on-line in 1999. It was replaced with a
new 11,000 square foot signature RTMC in December 2009 and provides an ITS platform for Turnpike Operations to work closely with FDOT Districts 4 and 6 RTMCs along with surrounding emergency response agencies. The 1,200 square
foot Turkey Lake RTMC went into operation in 2002 and underwent a major renovation to double the video wall and workstation capacity in 2018. The Turkey Lake RTMC collaborates with FDOT Districts 1, 3, 5 and 7, the Central Florida
Expressway Authority and surrounding city and county agencies.
Both RTMC locations work closely with the Florida Highway Patrol’s Troop K as the primary law enforcement agency on all Turnpike roadways. With staff embedded at FHP’s LWRCC, the Turnpike upgraded video display capabilities
at that facility in 2020, increasing the size of the main video wall and adding supplemental side displays for real-time metrics and resource availability viewing. For more information on Florida's Turnpike Enterprise,
