New Roswell traffic center works to warn drivers

Updated:

NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A new traffic center in Roswell is working to improve the morning commute.
 

The Roswell traffic center has been operating for a couple of months. Engineers monitor the roads using sensors in the street and cameras above the roads.
 
“We are able to very quickly move resources to places where people were in need. It was a big help during the ice storm as well,” Roswell police Chief Rusty Grant said.
 
The monitoring helps when Georgia 400 gets crowded and drivers use Roswell Road as an alternate, resulting in even more congestion. Engineers then have alternatives at their fingertips and the ability to warn drivers of not only congestion, but also in extreme conditions.
 
Engineers say they know they’re making an impact on traffic in north Fulton County.
