Real Time Traffic Signs Being Installed On Route 24
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced on Tuesday that the Real Time Traffic System (Go-Time) is being expanded with additional displays along 30 miles of the Route 24, going from Fall River to Randolph.
Nine signs will be included as part of the expansion providing information such as travel times to 20 destinations.
The Bluetooth based Real-Time Traffic Information System (Go-Time) "provides drivers with up to the minute traffic information about how long their commute will be, and promotes reduced congestion and improved air quality by giving drivers a tool to make informed travel decisions."
MassDOT officials say that the system will continue to expand on a corridor by corridor basis throughout 2016 and, when completed, will cover over 700 miles of highway statewide and will have 137 signs displaying travel times to over 300 destinations.
Similar displays were activated on Route 140 in the area of Taunton in April 2016 and Cape Cod in 2014.
