Intelligent Transportation System


 WHAT: The City of Kirkland upgraded two dozen intersections to Intelligent Transportation Systems technology. This technology relies on closed circuit television cameras and fiber optic cable to create a coordinated network of traffic signals that convey real-time images of traffic to Kirkland's traffic engineers in the City Hall-based Transportation Management Center. From there, engineers can monitor and, if necessary, adjust signal-timing in real-time.

Commuters can also monitor traffic in real-time to help them decide what route to take. 

The City has already upgraded traffic signals at intersections along Lake Washington Boulevard, Lake Street, Market Street, 98th Avenue Northeast,Central Way and Northeast 85th Street.

Caring for your infrastructure to keep Kirkland healthy, safe and vibrant.
