High-Tech Traffic Forecasts for New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway
The New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway will soon have high-tech traffic forecasts, which will alert both operators and drivers of potential bottlenecks before they happen. The traffic forecasting technology has been able to predict traffic flows with up to 90 percent accuracy using complex computer models. The traffic forecasts will be displayed on existing highway message signs and drivers will have the option of receiving email or text message alerts. The same traffic forecasting technology is currently in use in Singapore and Stockholm.
