Iteris has been awarded a five-year specialised consulting services contract by Texas Department of Transportation (TxDoT).

Iteris also reports that it won a one-year contract in the state of South Dakota to introduce new features to the state’s 511 Traveler Information System and to continue operation and maintenance services for the statewide system.

The Texas deal is for the San Antonio District and has a value of up to $3 million, according to Iteris. It is the company’s third contract with the district within the past six years, bringing the total value of work to $8 million.

“We are proud to be selected again by TxDoT to support important infrastructure projects in the San Antonio District,” said Cliff Heise, regional vice president, mobility professional services at Iteris.

The agreement is also the sixth major contract awarded to Iteris by TxDoT in the past six years.

Iteris delivers its smart mobility infrastructure management through its ClearMobility Platform. Work in San Antonio will include developing construction level plans, specifications and estimates and deploying wireless or fibre communications, closed circuit television cameras, dynamic message signs, vehicle detection systems, wrong-way driver systems and low water crossing systems. 

There will also be infrastructure support, traffic signal design, traffic signal operations support and signal timing for the twelve counties within the San Antonio District area.

Meanwhile, South Dakota DoT's 511 Traveller Information System, which is powered by Iteris’ advanced traveller information system, ClearRoute, is to have two enhancements as part of a new deal.

One is a county and tribe road closure and travel advisory and the other is the automation of state highway network map updates.

Additionally, Iteris will continue to provide operation and maintenance of the roadway management system itself, the SD511 website, the SD511 mobile applications for iOS and Android and the interactive voice response telephone number.

“We are proud to continue to be South Dakota’s trusted provider of the SD511 roadway management system,” said Moe Zarean, general manager of mobility operations services at Iteris. “The 511 service is paramount to efficiency and road safety in South Dakota, especially during winter weather.”
