Many travelers prepare early for the morning and evening commutes by watching or listening to the news for regular traffic updates. While this is usually helpful, you sometimes need information in between the traffic forecasts. One way SDOT gets this information to you is through dynamic messaging signs. You’ve likely seen these digital display boards on the freeway and major streets. When there is important information to share, we can send a message to the signs that helps travelers make more informed decisions on the road. Messages may be about special events alerts, roadway closures, traffic accidents, heavy congestion or a number of other travel concerns. SDOT currently has six dynamic messaging signs, but has plans to install 12 more next year. Stay informed and drive safely!
