PROJECT OBJECTIVES / STATUS:
Objectives: To proactively maintain, replace, and keep the City's Intelligent Transportation System assets up to date for optimized traffic conveyance and safety
Status: Program is working toward the purchase and upgrade of the traffic signal communication assets to allow for real time and always connected communication. This will be coupled together by a new cloud based Active Traffic Management System (ATMS) that will allow for real-time monitoring from computer and mobile devices. An integrated platform for signal control, ITS field device monitoring and control, information management, graphical data display, advanced traffic algorithms. It will provide real-time management capabilities for our roadway network, ensuring increased safety and improved traffic conveyance
On-going repairs and replacements are required as part of on-going system improvements, damages and traffic pattern changes. Funding levels will be requested annually based on the anticipated burden to accommodate the existing condition status at that time.
