How you benefit

Relieves congestion
WSDOT is expanding its electronic infrastructure that supports "smart highway" devices such as variable-message signs, ramp meters and closed-circuit TV cameras. All these devices help WSDOT manage traffic flow and communicate real-time traffic conditions to the public and media.

This project was preparatory to larger projects coming in the future in which crews will install the actual communication devices.
