The traffic data and technology company Iteris has been awarded a $3.2 million sub-contract agreement to provide operations services and staff to the Florida Department of Transportation District 7 regional Traffic Management Center in Tampa, Florida.
The company says this represents an expansion of Iteris’ operations services business in a key geographic market.
Under the terms of the sub-contract, with Lucent Group, Iteris will supply TMC operations services and staff for a minimum of five years. The company says the programme supports FDOT’s commitment to a “proactive operations culture”, which takes a more purposeful approach to seeking and anticipating traffic-related issues with the goal of improving road safety and efficiency for travellers.
Iteris adds that this work may also include integrating future I-75 managed lanes to the RTMC, co-management of arterial and freeway operations, and design and construction oversight of the new operator workstations’ floor layout.
“FDOT is demonstrating its commitment to improving traffic safety and efficiency in this key part of the state,” said Moe Zarean, vice president and assistant general manager, eastern region, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “We look forward to leveraging the expertise from our TMC staffing engagements across the country to resolve the issues facing freeways and arterial roads throughout District 7.”
