So if you are travelling on I-5 or I-90 or the 520, you must be wondering what these digital screens are and more importantly why they are blank. Well, if you are as curious as me, then you’d know that our Freeways are getting a facelift. In fact, it’s more than a facelift – they are becoming smarter! Starting in a couple of weeks these freeways will become Variable speed, dynamic lanes and make our commute more smarter.
Here are some of the signs that you should know about:
Lane closed Lane open Current speed limit
Merge left Merge right Merge left or right
Seems pretty obvious to me! Anyway, if you need more information: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/I5/ActiveTrafficManagement/
Hope this helps! Now, if only we had smart drivers…*wishful thinking*
