Oregon Department of Transportation – I-84 Snow Zone Safety Improvement Project

Interstate 84 in northeastern Oregon is a high-volume freight and commuter corridor that experiences dangerous winter weather that contributes to a significant number of serious or fatal crashes. To improve safety for drivers, Oregon Department of Transportation developed a$15.6 million automated system that allows the real-time weather, traffic flow, and surface condition readings to flow into Oregon DOT’s Active Traffic Management system. This system provides traffic advisory messages to the public via new weather stations, variable message signs, and live cameras accessible online. As a result, motorists now have all the information they need to make the best commuting choices that keep them safe.
