The Adaptive Signal Control System will benefit residents of Port Orange, Ponce Inlet, South Daytona, Daytona Beach Shores, Volusia County, and visitors. The contractor for the project is currently installing cameras, pulling cables, and shooting directional bores at intersections and along the Dunlawton corridor. The project is anticipated to be completed in late-Spring/early Summer 2021.
Once in operation, the system will allow new signal timing sequences to be developed based on current traffic volume/conditions along the Dunlawton corridor. The system consists of strategically placed sensors along the corridor that collect data on the volume of vehicles passing each sensors, allowing the system to analyze the current traffic volume and develop new signal timing sequences to match the current traffic volume to improve the efficiency of traffic flow along the corridor. Compared to traditional signal retiming efforts that are conducted every 2 to 4 years, the adaptive traffic signal system develops new signal timing sequences every few minutes to be maintain an efficient traffic flow and ease traffic congestion. Therefore, drivers should experience less stop and go along the corridor and more green light travel. An example of a roadway corridor in Volusia County with an ASCT system is International Speedway Boulevard (US 92) through Daytona Beach.
