The TPO is pleased to share the below good news regarding the start of a technology improvement project along SR 421 (Dunlawton Avenue).
The Florida Department of Transportation will begin the installation of an Adaptive Signal Control System on S.R. 421 (Taylor Road/Dunlawton Avenue) from Summer Trees Road to South Atlantic Avenue on Monday, June 29.
Using Adaptive Signal Control Technologies (ASCT), will allow real-time adjustments in traffic signal timing in response to changing traffic volumes. Strategically placed sensors along the corridor will collect data on the number of vehicles passing each point. The system then analyzes the data and can change the timing cycles of the signals to improve traffic flow. ASCT helps improve the traveler experience, increases the efficiency of traffic maintenance systems, and provides an additional safety measure on our roads and highways.
The contractor does not have any planned lane closures until later this Summer, please see the attached project flyer for more detailed project information or visit the project website at the link below.
