Automated Warning System Helps Caltrans Provide Real Time Information to Motorists

STOCKTON – As California’s population continues to increase, so does the number of motorists on the State’s highways and interstates. This growth presents Caltrans with the complex challenge of continuing to provide and maintain a reliable, sustainable transportation system, while also innovating to increase safety and efficiency. One solution Caltrans is using to meet this challenge is the Automated Warning System (AWS).

AWSs are being installed to monitor weather, road conditions and track travel times. Thanks to these warning systems, motorists can now access this real time information and arrive to their destinations safely while saving time and money.
