City extends smart traffic technology in the East End

The city is working in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University’s Transportation Center, Traffic21 and foundation partners to extend a new technology that uses real-time traffic signals to adapt instantly to shifting traffic conditions.
The Scalable Urban Traffic Control system, or Surtrac, extension is part of a new $1.8 million pilot project to bring “smart traffic technology” that will extend from the city’s east end neighborhoods most of the way to downtown Pittsburgh.
