Smart signs to begin on Seattle road

Washington State Route 520 will employ technology to get “smarter” on Tuesday, Nov. 16, when the Washington State Department of Transportation activates Smarter Highways between 130th Ave. N.E. in Bellevue and Interstate 5 in Seattle.

The electronic signs will turn on prior to the morning commute to provide drivers real-time traffic information, variable speed limits and lane status indicators to alert them of approaching congestion, collisions and blocked lanes.

Similar signage is in place on I-5 approaching Seattle.
