Stevens pass cameras...

Unfortunately, it looks like the Stevens pass cameras will be down for a week or more. On Wednesday of last week a backhoe digging up a sewer pipe at the summit accidentally damaged the fiber optic cable. Turns out several hundred feet of that cable will need to be replaced before the camera will be back online.

The camera is a lot more fun to watch when the snow is falling as snow falls on the roadway and the ski resort parking lot fills up daily with skiers. Luckily it happened while the sun is still shining!

Are there any plans for Active Traffic Management systems in mountain passes? I know there are variable speed limit signs around passes on I-90, but will there be signs that display not only speed limits, but allow individual lanes to be closed as well?

I'm talking about electronic signs above every lane.
