If you hadn’t noticed yet, the Spokane Regional
Transportation Management Center (SRTMC)
 has released an improved website in a new,
easier-to-use format.
The redesigned
website, at www.srtmc.org, features real-time, customizable traffic information with more than 100
live traffic cameras that are automatically updated to view incidents and
events as they happen. Users can zoom in or drag the map to specific areas and
check construction updates to plan their commute route around upcoming road
The map-based website is designed to be
user-friendly. By clicking icons on the right side of the screen, users can
find more detailed information, such as the location of traffic cameras, areas
impacted by collisions, road condition reports or signs displaying warning
messages. Users can customize their view to see each of these options
individually, or turn on all the “layers” to see them all at once. The new site
supports mobile devices and includes links to transit and travel resources.
SRTMC, located in downtown Spokane, is the nerve center for area transportation
systems. Center operators work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using video
screens and high-tech traffic control equipment to monitor roadways for
potential problems and alert incident response crews to issues. They also
remotely control dynamic message signs that warn drivers of incidents and
delays, and post warning messages to area highway advisory radio stations. All
this is done to help citizens avoid congestion and backups.

SRTMC is a collaboration of the Cities of Spokane
and Spokane Valley, Spokane Transit Authority, Spokane County, Washington
State Department of Transportation
, and the Spokane
Regional Transportation Council
.  Each of those jurisdictions share
the management, operation and funding of the center.
