Summary Information

The Transportation Expansion (T-REX) Project in Denver, Colorado is being implemented to improve highway safety and increase transportation options for the traveling public. The project includes deployment of multiple ITS elements including closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV), highway advisory radios (HAR), and variable message signs (VMS) to provide travelers with up-to-date information on traffic conditions in work zones and construction areas. In addition, courtesy patrols, at a cost of $55 per vehicle hour, help stranded motorists. Contractors working in these areas are using a temporary traffic management center to monitor traffic conditions and coordinate response actions with state and local agencies.
