Iteris announced recently that it had been awarded a contract from the city of Anaheim, CA. The initially approved contract is worth $928,000 for traffic signal synchronization services, and has a ceiling value of $974,000. The project will see the deployment of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) upgrades, as well as optimized traffic signal timing.
Santa Ana, CA-based Iteris is focused on the developing and deploying of systems that reduce traffic congestion, improve the safety of surface transportation systems, and provide measurement, management, and predictive traffic analytics. Iteris has offices nationwide and in the Middle East.
During the past five years, Iteris has had multiple dealings with the city of Anaheim, providing ITS systems and traffic signal synchronization services in addition to designing and deploying a traffic control system for the Anaheim Disney resort areas. Iteris has also delivered on similar projects in adjacent cities, as part of a countywide signal timing coordination project.
Anaheim mayor Tom Tait said, “As Mayor of the City of Anaheim, my goals are to keep the City strong, healthy, and happening. All of this starts with delivering reliable travel times to connect people to the community. Anaheim is very pleased to work with the City of Orange, Caltrans, and OCTA to improve the flow of both vehicle and bus traffic along Lincoln Avenue with traffic signal coordination through Anaheim and to our neighbors in the adjacent cities.”
Abbas Mohaddes, president and CEO of Iteris, added: “This signal coordination project is intended to improve the safety of these intersections, while providing a better travel experience through reduced travel times, stops, and delays. These are three key elements in effective traffic management, and represent the value proposition we provide our partners like the City of Anaheim.”
