VDOT Debuting Electronic Travel Time Displays

December 12, 2011

Northern Virginia commuters can now count the minutes while they sit in traffic on Interstate 95.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is scheduled to take the wraps off electronic message signs Monday between Fredericksburg and Washington. The signs will display estimated travel times, giving motorists a heads up on what lies ahead or the option to seek alternate routes.

Motorists will see travel times posted at three northbound and four southbound locations along the highway. They will operate from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.

The system was introduced in August on other DC area commuter routes.
