Lodi Highway Advisory System Upgrade


Radio Lodi, the Cityís Traffic and Emergency Information System, recently underwent routine maintenance and an upgrade that improves reception and gives emergency personnel the ability to execute a live broadcast.  Normally programmed with recordings regarding traffic-related issues such as parking and scheduled street closures, the system is also used to provide current schedules for the Cityís Leaf Removal Program and to alert the public about restrictions affecting air quality. 


Highway advisory radio systems can broadcast messages to motorists typically in a four to six miles range.  FCC guidelines restrict the use of these systems to emergency, traffic, and general public safety broadcasts.


The City of Lodi system can be found on your AM radio at 1250 and is coordinated through the City Managerís office.
