The Regional Traffic Management Center (TMC) is headquartered in Olin B. King Technology Hall on the campus of The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). The TMC is responsible for monitoring conditions across 12 counties that make up the ALDOT’s North Region: Cherokee, Cullman, Colbert, Dekalb, Etowah Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan.

The results from the TMC are free online (algotraffic.org), via Twitter (@algo_hvl), and in the app store.

The ultimate hope is that, together with UAH, the TMC won’t just help alleviate stress on the region’s commuters; it will also help ameliorate the flow of traffic so as to reduce the source of that stress.
