Iteris Inc. yesterday announced that it has been awarded a five-year professional services contract with a ceiling of $5 million from the Florida DOT (FDOT) District 7 in Tampa for a regional traffic signal retiming program.

The five-year program includes signal coordination and timing improvements at key intersections throughout Florida’s District 7, which houses over 1,100 signalized intersections, representing almost 20% of signalized intersections in the state.

Under the terms of the agreement, Iteris will provide services including intersection and system analysis, data collection and model development, traffic signal timing plan development, implementation and evaluation, and additional traffic signal operations services with the aim of improving traffic flow, enhancing public safety, and decreasing stops.

Iteris says the primary goal of this project is to implement optimized coordination timing plans to achieve optimal traffic flow and improve safety for all road users—including vehicles, buses, bicycles, and pedestrians.

“We are proud to support FDOT’s goal of improving the safety and mobility of road users by leading this traffic signal retiming program,” Helmuth Arens, associate vice president and traffic operations group manager of Transportation Systems at Iteris, said in a statement. “This initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ traffic signal coordination services in a key geographic market, and will ultimately help to increase the value and effectiveness of the region’s existing transportation infrastructure, while also improving safety, air quality, and reducing fuel consumption.”

Iteris expects to commence the traffic signal coordination project immediately.
