Two different systems, one on Minnesota Avenue and another on 41st Street, will go live this summer.

Troy Miller, traffic engineer with the city of Sioux Falls, says that two adaptive traffic systems will be activated in the coming months.  One will encompass eight intersections on Minnesota Avenue between Interstate 229 and 18th Street; another will span 13 intersections on 41st Street between Marion Road and Minnesota Avenue.

The adaptive traffic systems control lights based on traffic. Miller says the systems identify traffic and make adjustments to shorten travel time.

Sioux Falls already has such a system on 26th Street from Van Eps Avenue to Minnesota Avenue.

Installation of cameras has already started. It’s possible that the 41st Street and Minnesota Avenue systems go live at different times, Miller says.
