Did you know the highways in the Wichita metro area are equipped with advanced technology to inform drivers of real-time weather, traffic, and crashes conditions? The system is called an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS).

ITS uses technology, communications, and information to improve safety and mobility on our region’s transportation infrastructure. It keeps the public informed with real-time information and road condition status, giving motorists options when making their travel plans and selecting their routes.
