LOOKING FOR SIGNS: Two electronic signs similar to this one are being installed on northbound Arizona and Price roads south of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway in Chandler to alert motorists of traffic conditions along the motorway. The large LED signs will provide travel time information for motorists getting on the freeway, as well as traffic accident and freeway congestion warnings, Amber Alerts and emergency messages. The Dynamic Message Signs will link to the City’s Traffic Management Center in downtown Chandler as well as the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Freeway Management System. The $125,200 signs were purchased using federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grant funds.
