Improve the current Traffic Management System to allow more efficient operations of signal tech personnel and delay future hiring needs.
A study to develop a master plan for the City's long-range traffic management systems. Evaluate existing Traffic Management System. Determine options for improvement. Develop budgets, construction plans and procurement. Installation of selected improvements. Begin programming for implementation.
Eventually, the Traffic Management Center will be a manned communications nexus for monitoring, servicing, and controlling all the traffic signals under the City’s responsibility.
Work began in April 2014 to install a robust communications system for traffic signal data and control. This work will be multi-phased and is being funded with existing signal maintenance funds. The Transportation Dept. expects this work to be completed by the Fall of 2014.
Other features possible in future system improvement include a City-wide Gigabit Radio network that would have extra bandwidth for use by other City Departments, a web-based interface for public consumption of real-time video feeds at major intersections, continuous hourly/annual traffic counts at major intersections.
To be determined
Study completed March 2014
- Budget - $100,000
- Future Budget for development of the full system - $500,000-$1 million
