Transforming Saskatchewan Using Intelligent Transportation Systems Technology

The Regina Bypass Project, the largest in Saskatchewan’s history, will provide the Province with core Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) infrastructure including telecommunications and a data and traffic management centre (DMC). The ITS infrastructure also includes CCTV cameras, radar-based traffic data counters, variable message signs, signal controllers, a wireless and fiber network, and commercial vehicle pre-screening stations. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure plans to integrate future corridor and devices into the DMC. The presentation will take viewers on the journey, a paradigm shift, to transform Saskatchewan’s transportation network and future.
