Description

Phase 2 of Scott County’s Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) project will connect 22 signals in total along CH 21, CH 42, and CH 83 to the County’s fiber network. 

Purpose & Justification

An ATMS will allow County staff to manage and operate County signal assets remotely.  A connected ATMS will also allow communication between signals and to a central traffic management center. The benefit of this communication is traffic staff will be provided notification of signal issues as they occur.  As a result, knowledge of and response to signal issues will be improved. This communication will also allow for signals along a corridor to be coordinated to improve corridor efficiency and mobility. Additional benefits of an ATMS can include reduced fuel consumption and improved safety. For an ATMS to be implemented, traffic signals need be interconnected via fiber infrastructure.
