Located on the first floor of the Alan B. Sadler Commissioners' Court Building, Northstar houses multiple servers that communicate with all of the traffic management devices connected to our network. 

At Northstar operations personnel and traffic engineers monitor the traffic flows, incidents, and signal operations on a network of computers and monitors and take swift action to correct any issues. Northstar not only provides the ability to instantly provide relief to congested roadways but also allows technicians to remotely complete most repairs without actually having to respond to the location.

The Northstar system allows Montgomery County to operate a large and sophisticated traffic operations system with minimal staff and equipment. Technicians have access to the system from their homes when they are on call and can reduce the time to repair a malfunction in many cases by an hour or more.
