Our View: Technology helps Glendale ease traffic on Bell Road

Arizona – Technology is key to improving heavily traveled roads where adding lanes is impossible. Improvements (current and past) include message signs, closed-circuit TV cameras, traffic-detection devices and traffic-signal synchronization, specifically designed to improve traffic flow and reduce traveler delays and traffic congestion. The city has been working with Maricopa County Department of Transportation to install intelligent transportation-system equipment along the popular roadway.
