The Oregon Department of Transportation and Washington County (in a partnership project) are currently designing the next phase of ODOT RealTime, a system that provides real-time traffic information on roads to help travelers get where they're going more safely and efficiently.
The signs include:
All travelers in the new sign corridors will benefit from this expanded system.
Real-time data from hundreds of sensors embedded in the roadways detecting traffic volume and speeds is transmitted to and from ODOT’s Traffic Operations Center every 20 seconds and displayed on electronic highway signs. These signs - called ODOT RealTime signs - are used to display traffic flow and roadway conditions, enabling drivers to make informed travel decisions. ODOT RealTime was successfully implemented in July 2014 and can be seen on roads and freeways throughout the Portland metro area. This project will expand ODOT RealTime to additional corridors in the area.
The following corridors within the Portland Metro-area are part of this project:
