Iteris has won a $580,000 contract for the final integration phase of the San Mateo Smart Corridor Program, continuing a collaboration of 13 agencies and cities to design, deploy and integrate ITS solutions and strategies along the US-101 corridor in the county.
According to Abbas Mohaddes, president and CEO of Iteris, the integrated corridor management (ICM) project will identify key arterial roads that can serve as emergency alternate routes for diverting traffic off the freeway onto surface streets. Putting minimal impact on local residents and businesses along emergency routes is a key component of the analysis.
San Mateo County, Caltrans and the other local agencies have been early adopter of ICM strategies, and the build out of the entire corridor will demonstrate the benefits of intelligent transportation solutions,” Mohaddes says.
Iteris is responsible for the overall network design from a logical and physical perspective as well as the development and execution of system test plans to ensure all performance elements meet or exceed the system requirements. At the successful conclusion of subsystem testing, Iteris will lead overall system testing to ensure the system operates as an integrated system focused on providing ICM strategies in response to incidents and nonrecurring congestion along the US-101 corridor.
