Go Time Traffic Sign, Sandwich, October 7, 2014MassDOT “Go Time” real-time traffic information sign installation continues this year in locations along state roads across the Commonwealth.

The signs provide travel time information for drivers and will allow MassDOT to collect valuable traffic data.  According to MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack, the signs will be a convenience for motorists while providing traffic information that will help identify and alleviate traffic problems and bottlenecks.

The Rhode Island firm that manufactured the signs describes the sign technology and unprecedented scope of the “Go Time” project:

“SES America, Inc. (SESA) has completed the manufacturing of over three hundred (300) solar-powered embedded dynamic message signs to be installed as part of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s “Go Time” project. Once completed, the project will provide the largest travel time network available in any state in the U.S., allowing motorists across the Commonwealth to instantly access travel time data on major corridors across the region.”
