Southern Utah is home to some of the most beautiful rock formations in the US, and is a mecca for cyclists who come from all over for picturesque rides through Utah’s Color Country. It’s also very bike-friendly, thanks in part to the Utah Department of Transportation’s use of SmartSensor Matrix radar traffic sensors at intersections.
A long-awaited road project in Tustin, California is nearing completion and the city is using SmartSensor Matrix in innovative ways to make the new roadway friendlier to cyclists. The Tustin Ranch Road Extension project, which will connect Interstate 5 with Von Karman Avenue in nearby Irving, has been in the works since the 1970s and is eagerly anticipated by residents, according to former Tustin Mayor Lou Bone.
"Planning officials will be able to use the data to determine future usage and funding needs, both for day-to-day traffic and for future events like this," says Mike Rose, Wavetronix vice president of sales. "This will be enormously valuable information."
