INTERSTATE 80 INTEGRATED CORRIDOR MOBILITY GROUNDBREAKING
On October 19th, 2012, the Department of Transportation, the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority celebrated their partnership through a "plug-in" for the I-80 Smart Corridor project known as the I-80 Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) project. The $80 million technology-laden project will make life easier on one of the Bay Area’s busiest commuter corridors, Interstate 80.
When completed, traffic signals on surface streets will be in better synch with onramp meters and computerized highway signs, helping cars and buses better share the road during rush hour.
“We’re working together to help people get to work easier and faster,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “This is a good example of how technology can help us make better use of the roads we already have.”
The project includes $66 million in Proposition 1B funds, the voter-approved transportation bond passed in 2006, which are awarded by the California Transportation Commission. The project also relies on voter-approved local sales tax measures, approximately $2.8 million from the Alameda County Measure B half-cent sales tax, and $5 million from the Contra Costa Measure J half-cent sales tax.
“Drivers will benefit from this innovative use of technology,” said Caltrans District 4 Director Bijan Sartipi. “When a traffic incident occurs, motorists will be provided with real-time information to help them choose whether to remain on the freeway, choose a detour, or travel to the nearest public transit station.”
