GDOT optimizes traffic management after busy I-85 is destroyed


This video shows how Georgia department of transportation (GDOT) is utilizing technology to re-route traffic and keep congestion to a minimum following a fire (March, 2017) that destroyed part of I-85 – a busy route that carried more than 200,000 per day. GDOT’s transportation management center is using fiber communications, traffic signal cameras, radios and human operations, to make real-time adjustments to its infrastructure and to keep traffic flowing as freely as possible on its roads.
