Town of Lexington Goes “Live” with Adaptive Signalization System

Town of Lexington Goes “Live” with Adaptive Signalization System

(Press Release) In December 2015, the Town of Lexington officially transitioned to our new Adaptive Signalization System through video detection on FIVE signals in the downtown area. This month (January 5th), we officially unveiled these five signals as they went “live” and were converted over to “real time” control in place of “analog rotation” control. 

The affected signals include:

  • Main Street @ Church Street & Lake Drive
  • W. Main Street @ Park Rd & Old Chapin Rd
  • Columbia Avenue @ Butler Street

Since implementation, the downtown corridor has experienced an 18% DECREASE in travel time.  The Columbia Ave. / W Main St. corridor has experienced a 10% decrease in travel time.  As the system expands and becomes “live” on adjacent signals, these times are expected to further improve.  The entire system (35 signals) is expected to be functioning “live” by the end of 2017.

Learn more about the Adaptive Signalization System during Mayor MacDougall’s State of the Town Address on Monday, February 1, 2016 at 6:30pm at our Council Meeting as he acknowledges all of the Town of Lexington’s major accomplishments in 2015 and present our goals for this year.
