Have you driven along Eastern Avenue lately? You might have noticed a quicker commute!
The RTC, together with the City of Henderson and Clark County, has launched an adaptive traffic signal pilot program in Southern Nevada, along 14 intersections on Eastern Avenue between Beckler Drive and Pebble Road.
Instead of using traditionally timed traffic signals, adaptive signal control technology (ASCT) may help traffic signals become more efficient and improve performance metrics, potentially resulting in:
- reduced traffic delays and congestion
- improved travel time reliability
- decreased vehicle emissions
- improved safety
Unlike traditionally timed traffic signals, signals with this technology are supposed to react to changing traffic conditions caused by special events, road construction, and other roadway incidents to provide the best solutions to traffic signal phasing based on real time.
The pilot will go through March 2021. Hear how it works by watching the video below. You can tell us about your experience by visiting rtcsnv.com/adaptive-signal.
