Challenge Details

Transform Your Intersections

Thank You to All Applicants

We had applications from dozens of cities, counties, and other public agencies that own or operate traffic signals.



We’re assigning traffic signal specialists to each semifinalist to help us better understand their visions and to help them complete their final applications. We’ll announce a winner this coming spring and deploy the trial during the summer.
