McCain Inc., a leader in the supply of advanced intelligent transportation solutions for safety and mobility, won a one-year contract with a renewal option for four additional years with the city of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (L.A. DOT) to replace existing traffic control cabinets with new Advanced Transportation Controller (ATC) cabinets.

Over the duration of the agreement, McCain expects to deliver more than 1,500 cabinets, by far the largest ATC cabinet deployment anywhere in the world to date.

Traffic control cabinets house the computers and sensors which control traffic signal timing in order to facilitate the efficient and safe movement of vehicles, people and goods. Cabinets meeting ATC standards are designed to increase safety and efficiency allowing for much greater flexibility and modularity than older cabinet types. McCain’s ATC cabinets also provide future-proof technology and are equipped to embrace emerging connected and autonomous vehicle requirements. The company has pioneered the development of ATC cabinets, and its engineers have worked closely with standards developers to assure sustained benefit for traffic departments and the communities they serve.

Los Angeles is the nation’s second largest traffic market with incredibly complex traffic management issues. The agreement calls for the deployment of McCain’s 351, 352, 356 and 357 cabinets configured to fit the specific requirements of each intersection.

The McCain ATC cabinets will be phased in over the duration of the project with the final number to be deployed based upon L.A. DOT budget considerations.
