DOT Traffic Center's Mission to Keep Gridlock at Bay: News Report by Channel 13 WHO-TV (a NBC affiliate)

As summer traffic and construction get into full swing, the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Traffic Management Center in Ankeny is keeping travelers moving with the help of an Activu-powered video wall. The video wall helps operators in the TMC watch over Iowa’s roadways using information obtained from the feeds of over 350 cameras. The center, which runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, controls information that goes out to 511, coordinates with law enforcement, updates electronic traffic signs and reroutes traffic when there is a crash.
