The Smart Fiber Project is expected to install 143 miles of fiber optic communication in Tennessee along I-40.
This includes cameras, dynamic messaging signs, road weather sensors, and connected vehicle roadside units. All of these devices support the strategic buildout of broadband and smart transportation infrastructure, especially in the state’s rural areas.
This project will aid in the state’s efforts to increase safety, communicate to drivers, monitor roadway conditions and improve response times to incidents and weather-related emergencies.
The Smart Fiber Project will also prepare the state’s roads for connected and automated vehicles.
The introduction of ITS equipment along I-40 will reduces crashes by assisting with incident detection and management; better informing the traveling public on routing information, weather conditions, and travel times; and helping the DOT actively manage traffic conditions. The ITS equipment also improves travel reliability by increasing situational awareness and improving operations and traffic management and reduces shipping costs by helping freight traffic better predict and avoid accidents and congestion. ITS deployment demonstrates high innovation by building a regional portion of the national digital infrastructure for connected and automated vehicle readiness and using realtime
performance information to better manage the I-40 corridor.
The project is expected to begin in late 2021.
