This design-build project will install Intelligent Transportation System components along I-75 from the Manatee County Line north to Big Bend Road including 11.5 miles of fiber optic cable, 21 closed-circuit television cameras, and 29 Microwave Vehicle Detection units.
An Intelligent Transportation System, or ITS, uses a variety of devices including electronic roadway signs, (called dynamic message signs) and closed-circuit television cameras to monitor roadway congestion, lane closures, and current weather or emergency conditions and advise motorists of travel times.
Construction is anticipated to finish in early 2020.
- There are no lane closures at this time.
