Alternative routes empowering motorists to make route decisions
Alternative routes systems allow drivers to make route choices. By using a second Dynamic Message Panel, as opposed to a Travel Time Display, we can create a dual-display sign. When one route slows down, drivers can choose to take the other course. With the real-time displays, traffic volume between two routes adjusts itself.
Deployment Criteria Considerations
Traveler Information System (Travel Time) should be considered for deployment as part of a project’s temporary traffic control plan when the following conditions are anticipated:
Anticipated System Effects
When properly designed and deployed for a specific project, a Travel Time System should inform drivers what the estimated travel time is between their current location and a specific destination. Furthermore, the system will give drivers information that will allow them to decide whether to change routes and allow them to notify others of their estimated arrival time. Providing drivers with enough information will help calm temperaments. Therefore, consideration should be given to provide an alternate route and travel time.
