On The Job: Traffic Control Center
It’s Monday, so let’s celebrate the working life. We’re talking to the people who do the jobs that you sometimes don’t see or don’t think about.
Here’s something you may not know: those digital billboard messages like “minutes to tunnel” travel times are determined through the Arizona Department of Transportation’s system of sensors in the pavement of Phoenix-area freeways.
Data from those sensors allows the Traffic Operations Center to provide estimated travel times so you know if you’re running late, or maybe running early, to work.
Today, we step into a day-on-the-job in the ADOT Traffic Control Center with Jayson Winter.
