Loudoun County deploys Intelligent Transportation System on roadways
Loudoun County, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT,) on Monday deployed an intelligent transportation system (ITS) which includes color, closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) and dynamic message signs (DMS) at five locations, according to an Oct. 15 release.
By connecting the CCTV cameras, VDOT’s Transportation Operations Center can stay updated on incidents on the roads and share accurate information with the public, traffic reporters and law enforcement and fire-rescue agencies, officials said in the release.
In addition, information from Loudoun County roads will be tied into the VDOT’s regional transportation operation network, the release states. The signs will enable drivers to be better informed and make safer and more coordinated commuting decisions.
The county has installed the ITS devices at what they said are key locations:
– Route 50 east of Tall Cedar Parkway
– Route 50 east of Loudoun County Parkway
