Traffic signs serve a very important function: to keep drivers and pedestrian well-informed and safe. Signs are placed in strategic areas so they can guide drivers in the correct directions as they pass through a city or state.
In Oklahoma, electronic signs have been installed and tested for driver’s convenience. These electronic signs offer drivers passing through the Interstate useful information. Recently, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has conducted its final round of testing on 21 electronic signs across the city. The signs have been constructed along I-35, I-44 and on Broadway Extension.
The electronic signs will be providing real-time information about traffic as well as weather-related road closures. There will also be travel information, Silver Alerts and Amber Alerts. Sensors will be used to measure car speeds and post these to the signs. This information will be posted from 6am – 9am and 3pm – 6pm every weekday. Boards will be in full use starting on November 10th.
In addition to the existing electronic signs, there are also signs to be installed near the borders of Arkansas, Kansas and Texas.
