DOT'S ELECTRIC SIGNS FINALLY GET THEIR SMARTS

This article describes problems with variable message signs that were experienced as a result weak antennas. The antennas were adjusted and will eventually be replaced by fiber optic cable. The signs are part of the Metropolitan Area Guidance Information and Control (MAGIC) system which uses radar, sensors, variable message signs, fiber optics, and closed circuit cameras to alert drivers and offer alternate routes. MAGIC is a component of the TRANSCOM program in operation in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.
