Three-year Initiative will Improve Traffic Flow and Safety Across 15 Cities in Southern California
- Contract demonstrates demand for Iteris’ new “intersection-as-a-service” offering and the company’s traffic signal synchronization business
- Initiative will improve signal timing and safety across 1,250 intersections covering over 250 square miles in the San Bernardino Valley area
SANTA ANA, Calif. – June 26, 2018 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has received $2 million in service orders under a new $3.2 million on-call contract from the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) for traffic signal synchronization services across 15 cities in the San Bernardino Valley area.
Under the three-year $3.2 million on-call contract, Iteris will prepare traffic signal coordination master plans, update existing coordinated traffic signal timing plans, perform semi-annual system assessments, and provide on-call system support and maintenance services for the San Bernardino Valley Coordinated Traffic Signal System (SBVCTSS) corridors – a heavily traveled arterial network of more than 250 square miles. The primary goal of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety for all road users, including vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians, as well as reduce travel times and number of stops along the SBVCTSS corridors.
The initial service orders address traffic signal timing improvements, semi-annual assessments and ongoing maintenance both within cities and across jurisdictional boundaries for 1,250 signalized intersections. The service orders span 16 agencies: Chino, Chino Hills, Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Highland, Loma Linda, Montclair, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino City, San Bernardino County, Upland and Yucaipa.
“We are proud to support the SBCTA’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of its road users with this expansive traffic signal synchronization project, which demonstrates demand for Iteris’ intersection-as-a-service offering and represents the continued expansion of our advanced signal timing services in southern California,” said Ramin Massoumi, senior vice president and general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “This new initiative with the SBCTA will not only help to decrease travel times and overall traffic congestion but also improve air quality and reduce the existing transportation system’s impact on the environment.”
Iteris expects to commence the traffic signal synchronization project immediately.
