US2/Stevens Pass -- ITS Emergency Power
The North Central Region operates and maintains several types of ITS devices on US2 across Stevens Pass. The systems allow for modification of the speed limit based on road conditions, communicate traction requirements, provide the traveling public with information on road, weather and traffic conditions and allow for efficient maintenance activities. These devices are supplied with power through the PUD grid. Public power to these ITS systems has been interrupted in the past due to extreme weather conditions. We plan to install back-up power systems to the ITS devices in order to insure that the systems are powered at all times.
