Take a tour of the Transportation Management Center.

The Traffic Operations Division monitors, maintains, and manages travel conditions throughout the county. This division is home to the Transportation Management Center, which serves as the hub for traffic information and uses state-of-the-art technology that provides traffic engineers with real-time access to a vast network of traffic data-gathering systems (i.e., vehicle sensors, fiber optic communications cable, CCTV cameras, software applications) and traffic control devices (i.e., signals, flashers, flashing yellow arrows). Operators in the Transportation Management Center monitor travel conditions, deploy solutions to manage traffic conditions, and pass along real-time traffic information to drivers via dynamic message signs, the Cobb Commute interactive web tool, and social media.
