  • Abstract:
    The Arizona Department of Transportation's (ADOT) Trailmaster Freeway Management System is integral to AZTech. Trailmaster provides state-of-the-art traffic management through a variety of electronic means, such as collecting and distributing traffic information via cameras and detectors. Trailmaster has currently been implemented on some 50 miles of freeway in the Valley of the Sun. Trailmaster has not yet arrived, however, at a highly traveled eight-mile section of U.S. Highway 60 between Interstate 10 and Gilbert Road in the East Valley. In fact, the expansion of Trailmaster is not expected to reach this stretch of highway for two to three years. In the meantime, the need for traffic management is urgent. To install traditional traffic detection devices, which would relay information to the ADOT Traffic Operations Center (TOC) via telephone lines, would present a major cost. Identifying a cost-effective alternative became an AZTech priority.
