Six more Miovision Traffic Link devices coming to city

Intersection of Highway 90 and Willing Street

We have some good news for the traveling public especially those who use Highway 90. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will deliver 6 additional Miovision Traffic Link devices to Milton shortly. Those in addition to the three already in place at Highway 90 at Willing, Elmira and Canal Streets will help with moving traffic smoothly from Highway 87 and I-10 exit and west on Highway 90 to Avalon Boulevard and I-10 exit. The purpose is to monitor traffic flow at each traffic signal and make necessary timing changes if needed in extenuating circumstances, such as the recent Five Mile Swamp Fire which unexpectedly re-directed traffic to Highway 90.


“These devices will help traffic flow during difficult situations by synchronizing traffic light timing,” said Milton City Manager Randy Jorgenson.


According to FDOT, the project is to provide monitoring for detection of failures, split failures, power outages, and travel times for the corridor. In the event of I-10 diversion, FDOT said the devices will provide a better result. They also said they are considering expanding capabilities for remaining signals along Highway 90 into Escambia County/Pensacola to be able to actively manage the signal systems regionally.
