      (3)     The Office of Travel Management is retitled as the Office of Transportation Management, and assumes responsibility for:  Operations asset management; coordination of non-freight legislative initiatives within the Office of Operations; and the development of technology applications, products, and practices to improve routine and emergency travel management relating to highway capacity analysis, traffic flow, and access management.

      (4)     The Office of Transportation Operations assumes responsibility for all public safety and security activities within the Office of Operations, including traffic incident management and emergency preparedness. 

    3. In an unrelated change, the introductory narrative is revised to identify the Director of Field Services-West as the Regional Emergency Transportation Coordinator (RETCO) for DOT Regions 5 and 7, and the Division Engineer for the Federal Lands Highway Central Division as the RETCO for DOT Region 8.

    1. Chapter 1 (FHWA organization chart only) is revised to reflect the Office of Operations’ new structure.

    2. The Introduction and Chapter 7 are revised, as applicable, to identify those FHWA positions serving as RETCOs.

    3. Chapter 5, including the Operations organization chart, is revised to reflect the realignment of the Office of Operations’ functions.
