Score another one for innovation and technology! We partnered with local public and private sector partners and were awarded a $6 million federal grant to expand emerging technologies on another busy stretch of freeway. Currently, some of these technologies are being studied along I-15, including overhead signs that warn motorists about incidents, speed reduction and lane closures ahead as well as sites dedicated to enforcing speed limits.
The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) program, which focuses on early deployments of forward-looking technologies that can serve as national models.
We’re excited to work on this project with the Nevada Department of Transportation, Nevada Highway Patrol, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and technology firm Waycare to help mitigate traffic congestion and enhance safety.
So what other technologies will be included along U.S. 95? Watch the video to find out:
