New TDOT traffic monitoring system

TDOT believes it has a smarter way to help you travel.

With a little help from strategically placed cameras, you can find out where interstate crashes are and how to avoid them in the Memphis area.

TDOT can also warn drivers about what's ahead and give instructions on reader boards.

The traffic monitoring system is called the SmartWay Intelligent Transportation System. or I-T-S for short.

Right now there are 25-cameras on-line, on or near the I-40 and I-55 bridges.

But you don't have to wait until you get on the road to benefit from the new technology.

The SmartWay I-T-S images are available on the TDOT website.

 You can get there by linking on our homepage.
