TxDOT maintains more than 79,000 miles of roadway equipped with traffic cameras, signals, speed sensors, traffic counters, toll tag readers, and the network infrastructure to connect these devices. More than 15,000 of these devices are currently connected to the network, and many more will come online in the future as TxDOT expands dynamically timed signals and other network-enabled smart traffic technologies.
