Three-year Initiative will Improve Traffic Flow and Safety Across Three Southern California Cities
- Project leverages Iteris’ traffic signal operations expertise to support region’s goal of improving the safety and mobility for road users
- Initiative will improve coordination and safety across 12 miles in Orange County
- Program includes Iteris’ Intersection as a Service, which provides proactive signal operations and maintenance with 24/7 monitoring of device and system health
SANTA ANA, Calif. – January 7, 2020 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has executed the final contract and received the formal notice to proceed for a $3.6 million initiative with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) for a regional traffic signal synchronization project.
The three-year project includes signal coordination and timing improvements, with the aim of improving traffic flow, enhancing public safety and decreasing stops.
Under the project agreement, Iteris will provide services that will upgrade traffic signal electronics and communications equipment, and optimize signal timing along Main Street, a major north-south corridor that comprises major signalized intersections spanning three cities – Orange, Santa Ana and Irvine – in Orange County, California.
As part of the project, Iteris’ Intersection as a Service™ end-to-end solution offering 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 optimized coordination timing plans to achieve optimal traffic flow, and improve safety for all road users, including vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.
“We are proud to support OCTA’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of road users by embarking on this traffic signal synchronization 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.
