The Michigan Department of Transportation
(MDOT) has awarded a contract to WSP
to design the next phase of intelligent transportation system (ITS) deployment for the state’s University Region.
The project will plan, design and construct new CCTV cameras, dynamic message signs and vehicle detection systems across the University Region to improve incident response and information dissemination to motorists on the state’s freeway system. WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff will provide ITS design services to expand infrastructure at locations where traffic operations capabilities are limited.
The company will be responsible for all facets of design, including ITS systems engineering, communications design, maintenance of traffic, utility coordination, geotechnical design, structural engineering, and power design. Upon completion of design, the firm will support MDOT with oversight during the procurement, installation, and integration of the proposed ITS equipment.
