PennDOT Intelligent Transportation System Will ‘Learn’ Over Time to Improve Traffic Flow

PennDOT recently completed installation of a $1.35 million Intelligent Transportation System at nine intersections along the three-mile stretch between Evergreen Road in Ross and Peebles Road in McCandless.

“Over the next several weeks, the system’s software will detect and gather information about traffic patterns throughout the day,” said Steve Cowan, spokesman for PennDOT’s District 11 office. “Once the patterns have been identified, the timing of the signals will automatically change to help improve the flow of traffic.”
