The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will be installing a traffic Adaptive Control System on Taylor Road/Dunlawton Ave in Port Orange (State Road 421) from Summer Trees Rd to South Atlantic Ave, within the next few weeks.
Using Adaptive Signal Control Technologies (ASCT), will allow real-time adjustments in traffic signal timing in response to changing traffic volumes. Strategically placed sensors along the corridor will collect data on the number of vehicles passing each point.
The system then analyzes the data and can change the timing cycles of the signals to improve traffic flow. ASCT helps improve the traveler experience, increases the efficiency of traffic maintenance systems, and provides an additional safety measure on our roads and highways.
The project will require a single lane closure in both the east and west-bound lanes during day and night-time hours.
Electronic sign boards will be put in place to alert motorists of closures. Road closures are not planned until later on in the summer.
