Iteris has been awarded contracts for traffic engineering, signal coordination and signal timing services for two Illinois-based transportation agencies.

The contracts are with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDoT) – for districts 2, 3, 4, and 5 - and with the Lake County Division of Transportation. Iteris develops and provides traffic signal timing plans, on-call traffic operations, time-of-day plan recommendations, safety analyses, and more.

The new contracts provide funding to identify innovative traffic signal retiming techniques to improve safety and mobility, reduce stops and traffic congestion and increase sustainability. By minimising delays and stops on key corridors, these efforts will help reduce emissions from vehicles—a key goal of IDoT’s 2023 sustainability initiatives.

Iteris said the two awards with IDoT will total around $6 million. Additionally, Iteris will be the only consulting firm with traffic engineering expertise to maintain active traffic signal operations contracts with all nine IDoT districts.

Iteris’s office in Geneva, Illinois, was established in 2018 and local staff currently manage active ITS, traffic engineering and design projects in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota and Indiana. These two new projects enhance Iteris’ large presence in the Chicago suburban area and represent continued expansion in the Midwest, noted Cliff Heise, regional vice president, mobility professional services at Iteris.

Iteris delilvers its smart mobility infrastructure management through its ClearMobility platform, an AI-powered end-to-end solutions monitor to visualise and optimise the use of mobility infrastructure.
