Faster And Safer Travel Through Routing and Advanced Controls (FAST-TRAC)

  1. A New Solution

    Oakland County, Michigan, continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. Unfortunately, there simply isn't enough money available to build new roads or widen existing roads fast enough to keep up with the growth.

  2. Future of FAST-TRAC

    RCOC is still on the cutting edge of technology, and we continues to develop our system. We receive and share information (data and live video) about traffic conditions with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

  3. History

    When RCOC officials concluded in the mid-1980s that it was unlikely that there would ever be enough money to make all the road improvements necessary to meet the traffic needs of Oakland County, they began searching for alternatives to traditional road construction projects.

  4. How It Works

    Traffic patterns change constantly in many Oakland County intersections. Intersections that are packed at 4:30 p.m. are empty in the middle of the night.

  5. Where Is FAST-TRAC?

    The list of Oakland County communities in which FAST-TRAC has been installed is growing.
