‘Smart’ traffic project nearly done in Washington County

Motorists in Washington County will soon find themselves surrounded by innovation, ranging from a soon-to-be-completed network of traffic cameras and message signs to cutting-edge intersection and interchange designs.
A three-year, $10 million “intelligent transportation system” project that features 21 traffic cameras and eight variable message signs is 95 percent complete and is expected to debut later this year, said Robb Dean, traffic manager for District 12 of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
