PennDOT Field Devices - District

Status

Existing

Descripton

This element consists of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Engineering District Ten, Eleven, and Twelve field devices and includes existing/future traffic detectors, CCTV, HOV lane management devices, rural crash avoidance systems, RWIS, HAR, and DMS. The field devices aid the department in managing work zones, controlling traffic in areas of the roadway where maintenance, construction, and utility work activities are underway. Traffic conditions are monitored using CCTV cameras and controlled using dynamic message signs (DMS), Highway Advisory Radio (HAR), gates and barriers. Work zone information is coordinated with other groups (e.g., ISP, traffic management, other maintenance and construction centers). Work zone speeds and delays are provided to the motorist prior to the work zones. This service package provides control of field equipment in all maintenance and construction areas, including fixed, portable, and truck-mounted devices supporting both stationary and mobile work zones. In the near-term future it will include traffic signals in corridors where the District TMC assumes operating control of the local signals.
