Traffic Adaptive Signal Control System coming to S.R. 44 in 2021

Flyer detail showing what to expect from installation of a Traffic Adaptive Signal Control System

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will begin installation of a Traffic Adaptive Signal Control System on S.R. 44 from Airport Road to 3rd Avenue in New Smyrna Beach. 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 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.

This project will also modify the existing turn lane on westbound S.R. 44 at Palmetto Street by extending its length back to Live Oak Street and restriping it to allow through and right-turn traffic.

This project will require single lane closures eastbound and westbound on S.R. 44 beginning Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at various intersections. Lane closures will happen during daytime and nighttime hours. Electronic message boards and other signage will be used to alert motorists of closures. For detailed project and lane closure information, please visit the FDOT Central Florida project website.
