Addams Tollway to become 'smart corridor'

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Chicago area could be getting its first "smart" tollway.

State officials have announced a plan to install "active traffic management" on the Jane Addams Tollway.

So what's that?

Digital signs would hang over the road, every half mile, with warnings about congestion or accidents ahead.

The system would also change speed limits depending on traffic.

If everything goes as planned, you'll see the "smart corridor" in two years.
