Many of the new system improvements include: 
  • Intuitive touchscreen payment kiosks that offer tailored multi-day pass purchases
  • Overhead digital display message boards allowing rotating messaging based on gate traffic, including an annual pass lane
  • Median digital displays prompting drivers to STOP or PROCEED to maintain space between vehicles
  • License plate recognition cameras for annual pass holders and increased security and safety operations
  • A modernized online account portal for more comprehensive annual pass purchases and renewals
  • Durable foam gate arms with increased response time for traffic flow
