Travel time information is now available along the full length of I-95 and I-195 in Rhode Island. As of January 8, 2013, RIDOT expanded the program to Route 146, a limited access highway from northern Rhode Island to I-95 South in Providence. RIDOT is working to expand this valuable tool for motorists to other highways.
Both overhead signs and portable message boards will be used to display this information to motorists. Real-time travel time information is also available at RIDOT's Transportation Management Center website.
The Department is utilizing existing technology and equipment originally installed to measure traffic volumes. The equipment measures the speed of traffic in real time as vehicles travel from one sensor to another, and determines an approximate travel time for each segment of road along the route.
