massdot_highway_logoMassDOT has announced that crews will begin installing Adaptive Signal Control Technology (ASCT) at seven intersections on Route 37 in Braintree the week of Monday, June 17. ASCT is a modern approach to traffic signal operation that allows individual traffic signals to automatically adjust to real-time events in order to promote a more efficient vehicle flow.

Rather than utilize preprogrammed timing schedules, adaptive signals respond more intelligently to fluctuations in traffic patterns and unpredictable events such as emergency vehicles traveling throughout the area. Benefits of ASCT include minimizing travel delays, increasing safety, reducing vehicle emissions, and promoting good driver behavior.

In order to install this new traffic signal system, varying traffic impacts will be necessary during daytime hours including lane closures and traffic shifts. These operations are currently expected to be completed by January 2020.

The seven intersections on Route 37 in Braintree where this technology will be installed include the intersections with Woods Road, North Street, and the ramps to I-93 north and southbound, the Five Corners intersection, as well as three intersections at the South Shore Mall.

Signs, traffic control devices and law enforcement officers will be deployed to guide drivers through the work zones during construction operations. All work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
