54 upgraded traffic lighting in the CID for new technology
Assist with traffic flow and mobility
Provide for emergency vehicle preemption
The Regional Connected Vehicle Program is a part of the Atlanta Regional Commissions (ARC) transportation priorities as set forth in their Transportation Improvement Program which if funded, in part, by federal money. The purpose of the program is to develop a data exchange platform involving deployment of current pioneering traffic detection technology in target areas. This program will have a profound impact on transportation safety and mobility throughout the State.
A few key elements of the operation will include, but not be limited to:
Emergency vehicle preemption
Freight signal priority
Transit signal priority
Signal phasing and timing
Traveler information messages
TCCID and Cobb County are working together with the State on deploying this technology. There are 173 traffic signals in Cobb County which will receive this new technology, with 57 of them being located in the CID.
