MOVEBR Program Updates on Traffic Signal Synchronization


Synchronized Signal Map MOVEBR Baton Rouge streets Florida Boulevard green BATON ROUGE, La. – December 16, 2020 – 
The MOVEBR program has released an update on its synchronization of traffic signals, a project that is providing equipment upgrades, software improvements and doubling the amount of fiber optic cable connecting all 470 signals throughout East Baton Rouge Parish. 

 

Signal synchronization is an important part of the MOVEBR program because it will provide 100% connectivity via fiber, allowing traffic flow to be adjusted at any time from the Advanced Traffic Management Center on Harding Boulevard. 

 

“I’m very pleased with the progress we have made on signal synchronization during this unusual year when traffic patterns changed, allowing installation to proceed efficiently,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “We want to be fully transparent, update the public and share what drivers can expect in the future. Very few cities in the U.S. have fully connected traffic signal systems. I’m proud to say Baton Rouge is leading the way.”
