Dynamic Traffic Signal Synchronization (language only)

Item 490 #1s

Item 490 #1s

Transportation, Department of

Page 455, after line 33, insert:
"The department is authorized to begin the planning and development of a real-time, dynamic, traffic signal synchronization system in Northern Virginia.  The purpose of this system shall be to track the flow and volume of traffic in the region and to adjust traffic signals to optimize the region's traffic flow."

(This amendment calls for VDOT to develop a traffic light synchronization system beyond the capabilities of the one currently in place in Northern Virginia. The proposed system would be one that could react dynamically in cases of accidents to prioritize emergency responses for EMS, law enforcement and fire departments and to better accommodate traffic flow on alternative routes that travelers on the road with an accident do not usually use.)
