Dynamic Lane Merge Systems
Lane merge systems are one of the oldest and tested ITS systems used in work zones. In rural, low volume areas they are used to move drivers into one lane early. This avoids conflicts, “road rage”, and improves traffic flow. In urban or more congested areas, lane merge systems are used to hold drivers in two or more lanes until the merge point to maximize capacity and give a little order at the merge point. This also reduces road rage and improves throughout. Dynamic lane merge systems do both, encouraging drivers to merge early when volumes are low and to stay in their lanes when volumes increase.
Although these systems are very simple, your experience with them will be better when you partner with someone like Road-Tech. We understand how to set these systems up in a way that maximizes their utility and gets you the best results for each deployment.
