Cam252MassDOT is working with the Army Corps of Engineers on a new system now in operation to monitor traffic in real time during construction at the Sagamore Bridge.

Technology called iCones has been installed by the Army Corps.   The iCones look like traffic cones but are equipped to monitor and translate traffic speed data into travel times.  Those travel times will be displayed on MassDOT Variable Message Sign boards located in three locations on the Cape side of the bridge.  

Two locations are SmartZone message boards, which include traffic cameras.  Those cameras are linked to the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority website, as shown, where any one can log on and see traffic conditions in real time.

Cameras are also in place as part of MassDOT's 511 traffic camera system on the other side of the bridge, allowing drivers approaching the Cape to get traffic data.  The iCone deployment is the result of the partnership among the Army Corps of Engineers, MassDOT, Cape Cod Commission and a regional task force, all coming together to help travelers make informed choices during the necessary construction work at the Sagamore Bridge.
