ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Construction will begin next week to install electronic message signs and other communications technology at various locations along US-127 as part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) Intelligent Transportation System (ITS).
ITS is a network of technology that allows MDOT to provide the motoring public with real-time traffic information via electronic messages boards and the Mi Drive traffic website (www.michigan.gov/drive). ITS networks are made up of various types of technologies, including but not limited to: electronic message signs (also known as dynamic message signs or DMS), closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, microwave vehicle detection systems (MVDS), and wireless and fiber-optic communication systems.
MDOT says: Drive like you want to make it home tonight.
There will be intermittent shoulder closures in each direction along US-127 between I-496 to just south of Price Road near St. Johns during ITS installation.
