Traffic Management Center

The City of Valdosta was one of the first cities in the state to fully implement the new networking 2070 controllers at all traffic signals. The 2070 controllers helps to improve city traffic by utilizing state-of-the-art communication and coordination software to control traffic through the TMC.  The signal coordination and other intelligent transportation system technologies are critical tools to maintaining optimum traffic flow.

The city uses Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) funds to help pay for transportation improvements, but has also been successful in requesting financial assistance from both the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration to help promote and expand efforts to implement intelligent transportation system solutions.
