Iteris will coordinate the design of project-wide traffic management activities which aim to improve one of the busiest freeway segments in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
The Pulice-FNF-Flatiron joint venture, preferred developer of the I-10 Broadway Curve improvement project in Arizona, has awarded contracts for a total of $3.5m to Iteris to provide its smart workzone traffic management solutions during construction.
Interstate 10 spanning the cities of Phoenix, Tempe and Chandler, and the town of Guadalupe, is the first major urban freeway reconstruction project in Maricopa County, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation which commissioned the project.
The I-10 Broadway Curve is one of the most heavily travelled freeway segments in the state, providing connectivity from downtown Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport to the southeast Valley and southern Arizona.
Under the terms of the contract, Iteris will provide the design-build joint-venture (DBJV) with design services (for temporary construction staging design), two software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions and its congestion management managed service.
Iteris claims the combination of its SaaS solutions and managed service will enable the DBJV to manage and minimise construction impacts, and increase safety and mobility for 300,000 daily metro Phoenix road users during the construction phase of the $615m project.
“ClearGuide and ClearRoute solutions will provide real-time traffic data to support safer, more efficient mobility and traffic management operations”
Iteris’ ClearGuide transportation performance measures SaaS solution will enable the analysis and visualisation of traffic data to improve safety and mobility during construction.
Meanwhile, ClearRoute traveller information services SaaS solution will provide drivers with access to mobile apps that depict congestion levels, schedules for project closures, relevant project information, and identification/notification of closure status.
“We are excited to join this vital initiative and provide Iteris’ comprehensive suite of smart mobility infrastructure management solutions, including design expertise, managed services and SaaS applications, to improve workzone safety for road users and construction workers,” said Scott Carlson, regional vice president, transportation systems at Iteris.
“Combined, Iteris’ ClearGuide and ClearRoute solutions will provide real-time traffic data to support safer, more efficient mobility and traffic management operations during the construction phase of this historic project.”
ClearGuide and ClearRoute are key components of Iteris’ ClearMobility platform, a complete solution to continuously monitor, visualise and optimise mobility infrastructure. ClearMobility applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed services to help ensure roads are safe, travel is efficient, and communities thrive.
The Pulice-FNF-Flatiron joint venture joins OC405 Partners as the second DBJV to use ClearGuide transportation performance measures solution for traffic management during construction.
Iteris reports the DBJV joins more than 20 government agencies and municipalities throughout North America that use the transportation analytics capabilities of ClearGuide to manage, measure and optimise complex transportation networks.
