Have I mentioned recently that the Spokane Regional Transportation Management Center turns ten this year? Yep, ten years of helping to combat traffic congestion. If you're not sure exactly what that entails, the video below will fill you in. 

I thought of it because of this article on the U.S. Department of Transportation website I stumbled on called "Behind the Scenes at TMCs." That's pretty much what the TMC in our office does.
