Traffic Go Time SignMassDOT announced today the expansion of its Real Time Traffic System (Go-Time) with additional displays along 30 miles of the Route 24 corridor, from Fall River to Randolph.

This expansion will include 9 signs, providing travel times to 20 destinations (note: 15 of these 20 destinations will be displaying travel times as of today, with the remaining 5 coming online as the system buildout is completed this year.)

The Real-Time Traffic Information System (Go-Time) is a Bluetooth based system that provides drivers with up to the minute traffic information about how long their commute will be, and promotes reduced congestion and improved air quality by giving drivers a tool to make informed travel decisions.

The travel time system will continue expansion throughout 2016 on a corridor by corridor basis.

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.

MassDOT activated similar displays on Route 3 in Burlington earlier this month, Rt. 140 in the area of Taunton in April 2016 and others in Cape Cod in 2014. In 2013, MassDOT activated temporary signs along portions of Interstate 93, Interstate 90 and Rt. 3.

By the end of the year, additional displays are scheduled to be installed along other parts of Interstate 95, Interstate 495, Rt. 1, Interstate 90 and Interstate 91.
