Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) in has awarded Iteris a $4.7m contract for a regional traffic signal synchronisation project.

 

The three-year project with the smart mobility infrastructure management firm includes signal coordination and timing improvements, with the aim of improving traffic flow, enhancing public safety and decreasing stops.

 

East-west corridor

 

Under the project agreement, Iteris will provide services that will upgrade traffic signal electronics and communications equipment, and optimise signal timing along Katella Avenue, a major east-west corridor that comprises key signalised intersections spanning the Orange County cities of Anaheim, Orange, Garden Grove, Villa Park, Cypress, Los Alamitos, Stanton and County of Orange.

 

In January, Iteris announced that it had been awarded a $3.6m contract to perform the same services across Orange County’s Main Street corridor.

 

Iteris’ Intersection-as-a-Service end-to-end solution, which is a component of the ClearMobility platform, will deliver proactive monitoring of traffic signal operations at all project intersections.

 

The primary goal of this project is to deploy new intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment and communication infrastructure to support the management of the cities’ transportation network, implement optimised coordination timing plans to achieve optimal traffic flow, and improve safety for all road users, including vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.

“It will ultimately help to increase the value and effectiveness of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption”

“We are proud to support OCTA’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of road users by embarking on this traffic signal synchronisation project,” said Scott Carlson, vice president and assistant general manager, transportation systems at Iteris.

 

“This initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ traffic signal coordination services, as well as our Intersection-as-a-Service offering, across the west coast and will ultimately help to increase the value and effectiveness of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption.”

 

Iteris expects to commence the traffic signal coordination and ITS design project immediately.

 

The ClearMobility continuously monitors, visualises and optimises mobility infrastructure. It applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed services to increase safety and efficiency.
