Louisville, Ky., has partnered up with the Waze Connected Citizen Program to utilize the enormous amount of daily transportation data their free and crowd-sourced navigation app Waze provides.
With Waze, the city government can identify areas of congestion and analyze modifications to the roadway system such as lane reductions or traffic signal changes.
“We’re trying to do historical analysis, where we say, ‘Okay, a road-diet is going on in this part of town. Is that affecting congestion? Is it making congestion worse?,’ Stuff like that,” said Ed Blayney, an innovation project manager with Louisville Metro Government.GovTech
