Upgrades coming to Traffic Control CenterFebruary 7, 2013
The Traffic Control Center will soon get an upgrade to its traffic management system, which will expand use of the Georgia DOT’s NaviGAtor system.
Gwinnett DOT Director Kim Conroy said, “This project will improve our ability to monitor and manage traffic conditions across the County. It also integrates our system with police, fire, the 911 Center and the Emergency Operations Center, enabling them to monitor the state’s cameras along I-85, which is critical to their incident management operations.”
The upgrade will also add to the information available to motorists through GC Smart Commute, which currently provides live, streaming video of select major intersections from Gwinnett County traffic cameras. This resource is available online at gcsmartcommute.com and on TVgwinnett weekdays between 6:30am and 8:30am and again from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Once completed, the upgrade will allow commuters to select a specific intersection and receive a static image that will be updated every 1 to 2 minutes.
The 2009 SPLOST sales tax program will pay for the $341,763 contract with Delcan Corporation to perform the upgrades to the traffic monitoring system.
