Eleven Adaptive Signals Along Alameda Boulevard Greatly Improve Traffic Flow


Commuters along Alameda Boulevard will experience less travel time thanks to the completion of the second phase of the Alameda Boulevard Adaptive Signal Project. The second phase of this project added four signals to the existing seven signals thus enabling the traffic signals at 11 intersections to adapt to real-time traffic demands and keep the traffic flowing at its optimum level. Now that all 11 intersections are coordinated and operational, commuters travelling in both directions can get to their destinations up to six minutes sooner.

“Adaptive signals along the Alameda Boulevard corridor, from Second Street to Cottonwood Drive, will read, respond and adapt to real-time traffic patterns,” says Commission Vice Chair Lonnie Talbert. “Drivers will experience up to a 40 percent savings in their daily travel time; that’s a quality-of-life improvement everyone can appreciate.”

The second phase of this project added four new intersections to the existing system along Alameda Boulevard between Coors Boulevard NW and Cottonwood Drive NW. The second phase was needed because traffic was backing up along Alameda Boulevard between the Loretta Drive NW and Coors Road NW intersections.

The first phase of this project was completed in the fall of 2013 with the installation of seven adaptive signals along Alameda Boulevard between Second Street NW and west to Loretta Drive NW.

The total cost for both phases of this project was about $743,000. Bernalillo County and federal grants paid for the project.
