Lima to Launch Traffic Mitigation Pilot

A pilot smart transportation project is being undertaken in Lima to mitigate traffic delays from trains blocking grade crossings.

The project will alert drivers to traffic delays caused by passing trains and provide navigation assistance.

It will use technology, some of which is still in the developmental stage, to collect data about approaching trains and provide information to drivers.

Funding for the project is being provided from the State of Ohio to Spectrum internet company and nonprofit organization US Ignite.

Lima sees an average of 35 trains a day and city official said the passage of these trains can cause long traffic delays that could hinder the ability of fire trucks and ambulances to respond to emergencies.
