Changeable Message Signs

Roseville is incorporating Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology along with our recently upgraded signal system to help reduce the amount of traffic congestion on busy roadways. The City uses ITS technology with the goal of improving traffic circulation throughout the City as well as to decrease driver aggravation by providing them timely and relevant traveler information. This is accomplished by publishing real-time City traffic congestion, construction, special event, and major traffic incident information via the Internet and on CMS's (Changeable Message Signs). A CMS is a traffic control device located along selected roadways that displays real-time information to motorists, such as accidents and special events, and aids in providing motorists with real-time information which allows the driver to make informed decisions regarding their travel options.
