Iteris has won a five-year contract from the Florida Department of Transportation to carry out a traffic signal retiming programme in District 7, Tampa.
The company says the main goal of the project is to implement optimised coordination timing plans to achieve optimal traffic flow and improve safety for vehicles, buses, bicycles and pedestrians.
Helmuth Arens, traffic operations group manager, transportation systems at Iteris, says this initiative will “ultimately help to increase the value and effectiveness of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving safety, air quality and reducing fuel consumption”.
The programme includes signal coordination and timing improvements at key intersections throughout the district, which Iteris insists houses more than 1,100 signalised intersections.
As part of the contract, Iteris is to provide services including intersection and system analysis, data collection and model development, traffic signal timing plan development, implementation and evaluation and additional traffic signal operations services.
Earlier this month, Iteris was awarded a $6.9m contract for two operations centres by the San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Commission in California.
