Iteris' ClearGuide Solution is being used to manage traffic during the I-405 Improvement Project in southern California.

Iteris says ClearGuide uses historical traffic data from Here Technologies to help OC 405 Partners, a joint venture between construction firms OHL USA and Astaldi, minimise workzone impacts while also increasing safety and mobility for 370,000 daily road users during this phase of the $1.9 billion project.

Undertaken by OCTA and the California Department of Transportation, it will be completed in 2023.

Scott Perley, vice president, transportation systems, at Iteris, says: “ClearGuide will provide real-time and historical traffic data that will offer actionable insights to support safer mobility and traffic management operations during the construction phase of this historic project.”

OC 405 Partners will have access to dynamic maps to support traffic analysis and features to help identify and mitigate congestion during the one-year contract. 

It will also provide historical trend reports and dynamic congestion charts to track reliability and support planning of project detour routes in and around the cities of Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Westminster and Seal Beach, the company adds. 

ClearGuide is part of the ClearMobility Platform, which applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services and managed service to help improve road safety. 

Following the project's launch in 2017, Iteris has supported work on freeway ITS and 405 Express Lanes infrastructure design, temporary ITS infrastructure for the project's traffic management plan and signal design. 

In May 2018, the company won a $2.4 million deal to deploy temporary ITS infrastructure. One year later, it was awarded a further $1.4 million in contracts for traffic manager support, construction operations and maintenance and associated construction phase services.
