Improving Mobility on the I-80 Corridor - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in cooperation with the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC), is studying ways to reduce congestion and improve safety through the use of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies. ITS is a combination of computer and communication technologies that make transportation systems operate more efficiently and safely. By giving drivers accurate, real-time information, along with managing traffic entering the freeway, the efficiency of the existing transportation system can be improved to move vehicles in a safer and more efficient manner, without requiring construction of new roads or the widening of existing roads.
