Drivers of connected vehicles on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes will receive warnings when cars on the road ahead have suddenly slowed down or come to a stop.

Participating drivers will receive alerts if they are approaching the downtown end of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes at an unsafe speed.

Connected vehicle technology will be installed at the midblock crosswalk on East Twiggs Street at the Hillsborough County Courthouse to improve pedestrian safety. When sensors detect a pedestrian, roadside equipment will broadcast that information to connected vehicles in the vicinity, and their drivers will receive an alert.

As pedestrians cross East Twiggs Street using the midblock crosswalk at the Hillsborough County Courthouse, approaching drivers whose cars are equipped with connected vehicle technology will receive an alert that a pedestrian is in their path.

Downtown traffic congestion can cause buses to fall behind schedule. Now buses on certain routes will be able to make up for lost time by requesting priority at certain traffic signals.

Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) buses on certain downtown routes will communicate with traffic signals to request priority and stay on schedule

The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will equip TECO Line streetcars with devices that enable them to detect other connected vehicles. Streetcar operators will receive a warning when a connected vehicle is about to cross the track in front of the streetcar, reducing the risk of a collision.

Traffic congestion sometimes prevents Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) buses from reachingtheir stops on time. The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will enable traffic signals to prioritize bus movements when necessary to keep buses on schedule.

The downtown terminus of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway Reversible Express Lanes (REL) is a potential entry point for wrong-way drivers. The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will detect and warn wrong-way drivers before they get on the expressway. Other drivers on the REL will also receive a warning if a wrong-way driver is approaching.

Sensors and wireless communication devices will improve pedestrian safety at the midblock crosswalk on Twiggs Street at the Hillsborough County Courthouse.

Traffic tie-ups at intersection of East Twiggs Street, Meridian Avenue and the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway Reversible Express Lanes (REL) increase the risk of rear-end crashes. Drivers on the REL who participate in the Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will receive a warning when they are approaching the intersection at an unsafe speed.

Drivers on the REL who participate in the Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will receive a warning when motorists on the road ahead have suddenly slowed down or come to a stop.

The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will equip TECO Line streetcars with devices that enable them to detect connected vehicles and pedestrians. Streetcar operators will receive a warning when a car or pedestrian is about to cross the track ahead, reducing the risk of a collision.

The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot will install sensors and wireless communication devices at several downtown crosswalks to improve pedestrian safety and mobility.

On September 14, 2015, Florida Senator Bill Nelson and U.S. Transportation Undersecretary Peter Rogoff joined Tampa Bay area transportation leaders to announce THEA’s connected vehicle pilot program.

THEA Executive Director Joe Waggoner describes progress on the connected vehicle pilot program at the 2015 Florida Automated Vehicles Summit in Jacksonville, Florida.

On January 19-20, 2016, Federal Highway Administration officials visited several of the sites where THEA plans to deploy connected vehicle technology
