MassDOT announced the first activation of the Commonwealth’s Real-Time Traffic Information System (Go-Time) set to expand statewide by the end of the year.

Three new Real-Time Traffic displays were launched in the area of Rt. 140 in Taunton. These displays include travel times from Rt. 140 to Interstate 195, Rt. 140 to Interstate 195, and Rt. 140 to Rt. 6. The signs will provide drivers with information about how long their commute will be and will assist drivers in making informed travel decisions.

Several other travel time displays are pending on Route 140. Display panels currently under construction will have an orange covering over the time display or display the word “test.”

MassDOT activated similar travel time signs in April 2014 on Rt. 6 on Cape Cod, and in 2013 activated a temporary sign system on portions of I-90, I-93 and Rt. 3.

Installation of the Taunton-area signs marks the first “light-up” of a plan to deploy these signs across the Commonwealth. When complete, the full system will cover over 700 miles of highway statewide and will have 137 signs displaying travel times to over 300 destinations. MassDOT estimates more than 2.2 million motorists will be able to view the travel time signs on a daily basis. This information will also be available on a mobile app by the end of the year.

The travel time system will be rolled out across the state on a corridor by corridor basis. By the end of the summer signs are scheduled to be installed along I-95 and I-495. By the end of the fall the Real-Time signs will be activated along Rt. 1, and by the end of 2016, the signs are scheduled to be installed along I-90 and I-91.
