CalTrans on Monday announced the approval of projects in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties as part of a $571 million investment in roads statewide.

$3 million will go towards a Transportation Management System. It includes Electronic Message Boards, Closed Circuit Television Cameras and traffic loop detectors on Highway 101 from north of Reservoir Canyon Road to north of the Paso Robles Overhead, and on Highway 46 between Theater Drive and Union Road.

The use of this technology on the state highway system will provide useful real-time information to travelers,” said Caltrans District 5 Director Tim Gubbins.

CalTrans says this project will help cut down congestion for local commuters.
