Key intersections throughout Cranberry are constantly monitored by stationary as well as pan-tilt-zoom video cameras to control turning lane signals and identify impending traffic problems – a unique capability for southwestern Pennsylvania. Separately, Carnegie-Mellon University’s Traffic 21 program was formed to take on a two-fold mission: to help local officials manage traffic incidents more effectively and to create adaptive software which would allow traffic signals to be controlled according to real-time conditions. Pairing the two organizations seemed only natural, so an agreement allowing CMU to access and use live video feed from Cranberry’s Traffic Operations Center was presented to Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors at their October 27 meeting. Approval of the agreement will be considered at the Board’s November 3 meeting. For more information, contact Cranberry Township Assistant Manager Duane McKee.
