The Department of Transportation and Public Works unveiled the modernized Traffic Management Center
Located just west of the airport is Miami-Dade County’s Traffic Management Center (TMC) in August 2016. Fully equipped, the space houses the newest traffic management technologies. The latest updates to the 41-year-old Center are part of a $1.3 million project that took five months to complete.
The most striking renovation was the addition of a video wall made up of 14 screens that displays feeds from traffic monitoring cameras and other real-time information from programs and systems such as RITIS (Regional Integrated Transportation Information System) and KITS (Kimley-Horn Integrated Transportation System).
