SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) – The city is equipping more streets with adaptive signals that detect traffic counts and adjust signals in real time.
Dustin Brinkman with Rhythm Engineering says the technology has mad a positive impact to traffic flow on 26th Street, reduced crashes and decreased fuel consumption.
Sioux Falls Police Chief Matt Burns says when cars stop less often, the likelihood for crashes also decreases. He says “more smoothly flowing traffic makes for safer commutes and a healthier community.”
Tired of gridlock on Rosecrans Street and throughout the Peninsula?
Relief is on the way soon in the form of an InSync traffic optimization system now being installed on signals along Rosecrans, one of San Diego’s busiest and most congested thoroughfares. A similar traffic- optimization system was installed six months ago on Torrey Pines Road on La Jolla Parkway in “the Throat” in between Interstate 5 and La Jolla Village.
“This is the same signal-optimization technique,” said Duncan Hughes, a city senior traffic engineer, who noted, “Rosecrans in Midway is among the heaviest-volume roads (in the city), not just Rosecrans, but all the crossing arterials.”
