MTC is responsible for the planning, management and coordination of Bay Area freeways.
Environmental concerns, and lack of funding and space for new freeways are just a few of the factors that make innovation at MTC necessary to keep the region’s freeways running smoothly and safely.
MTC’s Interstate 880 Corridor Management project minimizes the impacts of traffic on local streets between the I-880/I-980 interchange and the I-880/Davis Street interchange when an incident occurs on the freeway.
MTC works with several different agencies to quickly and safely clear accidents, stalls, debris, spills and other incidents from Bay Area roads.
Managed lanes are carpool and Express Lanes. Policies and needs are addressed on an ongoing basis.
Ramp metering traffic signals on freeway on-ramps reduce freeway congestion. They are a lot less expensive than widening a freeway, and can be installed quickly.
The TMC keeps the Bay Area moving by monitoring traffic in real time.
