Status:  Complete
Project Start Date:  09/20/2017


In 2018, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) conducted a one-year pilot project to install monitoring devices on 20 arrow boards and report the arrow board status information (e.g. right arrow on, left arrow on) to MnDOT's Advanced Traffic Management System for incorporating into the Road Condition Reporting System. A related project through the ENTERPRISE multi-state pooled fund program evaluated the deployment of the arrow board concept in Minnesota and Iowa. Overall, the data analysis indicates a benefit to the traveling public and Transportation Management Center operators by providing the location of lane closures through the arrow board reporting system.
