Overhead Electronic Message Signs

An overhead electronic message board is an electronic sign often used on roadways to give travelers information. Such signs warn of traffic congestion, crashes, incidents, roadwork zones or speed limits, or provide travel times.  

With the Downtown Two-way Street Conversion project, Redmond installed overhead electronic message signs along Redmond Way. These signs are controlled from City Hall and can display traffic-related information such as current or planned road closures or major events.

The boards automatically display current travel times through downtown along three parallel routes:

  • via Redmond Way
  • via Cleveland Street
  • via Bear Creek Parkway

Times are posted only when one route offers a clear advantage over another, or when all three routes are extremely slow.

Roundabouts


A modern roundabout is a circular intersection where traffic flows around a center island. Roundabouts are not traffic circles or the older-style rotary traffic islands found in some East Coast and European cities. Since vehicles entering the roundabout are required to yield to traffic in the circle, more vehicles can move through the intersection with less delay. The unique one-way design of roundabouts also accommodates the turning radius of large vehicles, like semi-trucks and buses.
