This is a 17-mile ITS (Intelligent Technology System) Freeway Management project along Interstate 95 from Airport Road in Duval County to the Florida-Georgia state line in Nassau County that incorporates a portion of A1A/State Road 200 just east and west of Interstate 95.
The project began in November 2017 with completion anticipated in spring 2019, depending on weather and unforeseen delays.
FDOT hired SICE as the contractor to complete this project for $4.5 million.
The Interstate 95 Nassau County ITS project involves installing traffic cameras and vehicle detection sensors on the roadway. ITS allows emergency agencies to utilize enhanced technology to better detect traffic slowdowns and incidents. This information can then be passed along to motorists through digital message boards installed on the interstate and through the FDOT 511 system.
The vehicle detection sensors will alert staff at regional traffic management centers of a slowdown or incident, and the cameras allow access to real-time video of the portion of the roadway in question. This information can then be displayed on the digital message boards and reported to 511, which provides motorists with additional methods of retrieving information – through phone, social media, or the 511 website.
The technology here is used for traffic monitoring purposes only. The cameras do not record and no footage is stored by FDOT.
