ITS PROJECTS IN ST. PAUL: DIVERT AND ADVANCED PARKING INFORMATION SYSTEM

Two intelligent transportation systems (ITS) projects that operate independently, but that share the goal of improving commuter safety and convenience in the St. Paul metropolitan area are DIVERT and Advanced Parking Information System. DIVERT is an incident management project that employs electronic message boards and other types of signs, alerting drivers to incidents in the busy capital interchange where two major interstates intersect and suggesting alternate routes. The Advanced Parking Information System uses electronic message boards and static signs to advise drivers about the availability of downtown parking spaces and the locations of parking facilities. This article describes how these two ITS projects work and their short- and long-term benefits. The projects are part of the larger Minnesota Guidestar program.
