Boston Drivers Can Avoid Traffic with New Video Screens

The rush hour bottleneck that occurs at many of the entrances to major arteries and highways out of Boston could become a thing of the past in the near future.

The city of Boston transportation department will install six “variable message screens” which will display real-time, GPS-based traffic data during the evening commute beginning this fall, according to the Boston Herald Monday.

The screens will show the best route for a driver to get onto a nearby highway – most notably Interstate 93 – along with estimated travel times, the Herald reports.

The signs could be placed at the South Boston waterfront area and Government Center garages to start, according to the story, but sites have not yet been determined.
