New Initiative will Improve Traffic Flow in Southern California City
- Project leverages Iteris’ traffic signal operations expertise to support city’s goal of improving the safety and mobility for local road users
- Initiative will improve coordination and safety of various traffic signal systems throughout Rancho Cucamonga
- Program continues recent west coast expansion following new multi-year initiatives in 15 cities in the San Bernardino Valley area
SANTA ANA, Calif. – November 19, 2019 – Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it has been awarded a traffic signal synchronization project by the City of Rancho Cucamonga.
The three-year project includes signal coordination and timing improvements at two major corridors in the southern California city, with the aim of improving traffic flow, enhancing public safety and decreasing stops.
Under the project agreement, Iteris will provide services that will update coordination timing plans, prepare plans for the design of traffic signal modification and interconnect system upgrades, and provide construction support and installation services as well as training opportunities to City of Rancho Cucamonga staff. The primary goal of this project is to deploy new intelligent transportation system (ITS) communication infrastructure to support the management of the city’s 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 the City of Rancho Cucamonga’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of local 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 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.
