San Bernardino municipalities to benefit from smart traffic technology

Iteris’ ClearGuide solution will be used to conduct before and after analysis on retimed corridors

San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) has extended its contract for traffic signal synchronisation-related managed services across 16 municipalities in the San Bernardino Valley from Iteris.

 

The 12-month contract extension will see the smart mobility infrastructure management company receive $737,000 in service orders under an existing $2.49m on-call contract.

 

Heavily travelled

 

Under the terms, Iteris will continue to perform on-call traffic signal synchronisation and will virtualise agency processes to provide system support and maintenance services for the San Bernardino Valley Coordinated Traffic Signal System (SBVCTSS) corridors. This is a heavily travelled arterial network of more than 250 square miles.

 

The primary goal of the project is to improve traffic flow and safety for all road users, including vehicles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians, as well as reduce travel times, number of stops and carbon emissions along the corridors.

 

In addition, Iteris’ ClearGuide software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution will be used to conduct before-and-after evaluations on all retimed corridors, with the option to include ClearGuide’s automated signal performance measures capabilities in the future.

 

The new service orders address traffic signal timing improvements, and ongoing traffic device and infrastructure maintenance, both within cities and across jurisdictional boundaries for up to 1,250 signalised intersections on an as-needed basis.

“The expansion of this initiative with the SBCTA will continue to decrease travel times and overall traffic congestion, as well as improve air quality and reduce the existing transportation system’s impact on the environment”

The service orders span 16 agencies: the Cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Highland, Loma Linda, Montclair, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino, Upland and Yucaipa, as well as the County of San Bernardino.

 

“The expansion of this initiative with the SBCTA will continue to decrease travel times and overall traffic congestion, as well as improve air quality and reduce the existing transportation system’s impact on the environment,” said Scott Carlson, regional vice president, transportation systems at Iteris.

 

Iteris’ software-enabled managed services offering is a key component of the ClearMobility platform, a solution to continuously monitor, visualise and optimise mobility infrastructure.

 

ClearMobility applies cloud computing, artificial intelligence, advanced sensors, advisory services, and managed services to help ensure roads are safe, travel is efficient, and communities thrive.
