Traffic Operations Center
The Traffic Operations Center Control Room staff monitors highways State-wide for incidents and closures, advises motorists of road conditions, and coordinates with maintenance crews and Department of Public Safety to establish on-site traffic control and quickly clear an incident. The TOC operates 24/7/365 and has access to numerous traffic cameras throughout the Phoenix metro area as well as many others across the state. They use Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) as well as coordinate with various media outlets to advise motorists of the latest roadway conditions and also display important safety messages. The TOC works with the ITS Operations team to provide optimal traffic signal and ramp meter timing. More about the Traffic Operations Center...
