Updated MTO Variable Message Sign Standard

  • MMM Group was retained by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) to provide specialist Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) consulting services for the development, detailed design, and construction administration of an updated Variable Message Sign (VMS) standard.
  • Updates to the standard include provision that each VMS be compliant with the National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol specifications, and contain a full matrix, high-resolution graphics panel and 33-mm pixel pitch, enabling full-colour text and graphics capabilities within a walk-in-style sign case for improved maintenance.
  • Having successfully carried out the construction administration and implementation of the first new VMS standard in 2010, MMM has since been retained by MTO to continue the deployment of VMS expansion and upgrade contracts along the Highway 401 corridor.
