New Information Display Signs Installed on 54 and 56


New Dynamic Message Board Display Signs have been installed above State Road 56 and State Road 54 to assist Wesley Chapel commuters with planning their travels to and from work, and about the Wesley Chapel area. The signs are expected to become active soon.

Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) are electronic signs that can change the message they display. DMS are an important part in traveler information and event notofication. Posting messages that provide motorists with critical information can help reduce congestion that improves the mobility and safety of the surface transportation systems. Informing motorists about real-time incidents and confirmed lane-blockage events, such as crashes, disabled vehicles, roadwork, car fires, and hazardous material (HAZMAT) spills empowers them to make informed decisions about their routes of travel. DMS boards are also used to post Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts and Leo Alerts.
