Washington State Route 520 will be getting “smarter” on Tuesday, Nov. 16, when the Washington State Department of Transportation activates Smarter Highways between 130th Ave. N.E. in Bellevue and Interstate 5 in Seattle.

The electronic signs will turn on prior to the morning commute to provide drivers real-time traffic information, variable speed limits and lane status indicators to alert them of approaching congestion, collisions and blocked lanes.

Go to www.smarterhighways.com for more details about the signs and variable speed limits.
