“We don't have rush hours any more,”said Charles M. McLean, who runs the
nation's busiest road,“We have rush periods, and they keep getting longer
McLean was describing Chicago's 235 miles of expressway. But the same might
be said about almost any of the expressways that have become an improtant
part of American city life and about the heavy traffic that often blocks
In Chicago, a computerized system has been developed that controls traffic
on the city's seven expressways. Now one man, a controller, can follow the
movement of Chicago's traffic by looking at a set of lights.
The system uses electronic sensors that are built /into/ each expressway, half
a mile apart. Several times a second, the computer receives information from
each sensor and translates it /into/ green, yellow, or red lights on a map in
the control room.
A green light means traffic is moving fortyfive miles an hour, yellow
means thirty to fortyfive miles an hour, and red means heavy trafficcars
standing still or moving less than thirty miles an hour.
“See that red light near Austin Avenue?”the controller asked a visitor,
“That's a repair truck fixing the road, and the traffic had to go around
At the Roosevelt road entrance to the expressway, the light kept changing
from green to red and back to green again.“A lot of trucks get on the
expressway there.”the controller explained,“They can't speed up as fast
The sensors show immediatelyswheresan accident or a stopped car is blocking
traffic, and a truck is sent by radio to clear the road. The system has
lowered the number of accidents by 18 percent. There are now 1.4 deaths on
Chicago's expressways for each one hundred million miles traveled, while in
other parts of the country there are 2.6.
Traffic experts say that the Chicago system is the“coming thing”. Systems
like Chicago's are already in use on some expressways in Los Angeles and
Houston.“Chicago has taken the lead,”says New York city's traffic
director, and he adds,“we are far behind...”
