I-5/ITS Advanced Traveler Information Systems
This project will install 5 traffic cameras and 6 data stations along I-5 at the Samish Way I/C in Bellingham and from NW Avenue in Bellingham north to Slater Rd. A short run of fiber optic cable will be installed at Samish Way that will connect to the City of Bellingham's fiber optic network to carry traffic data and video back to the WSDOT Bellingham Traffic Management Center. Between Northwest Avenue and Slater Rd a mainline fiber optic cable will be installed that will form the backbone of our communications network running north and south on I-5. This new fiber will connect to an existing fiber optic cable that has already been installed between the WSDOT Bellingham Traffic Management Center and I-5 at Bakerview Rd._An additional camera and data station may be added to the project depending on the availability of funds.
