The three-year project includes signal coordination and timing
improvements, with the aim of improving traffic flow, enhancing public
safety and decreasing stops.

Under the project agreement, Iteris will provide services that will
upgrade traffic signal electronics and communications equipment, and
optimize signal timing along Main Street, a major north-south corridor
that comprises major signalized intersections spanning three cities –
Orange, Santa Ana and Irvine – in Orange County, California.

As part of the project, Iteris’ intersection-as-a-service™ end-to-end
solution offering will deliver proactive monitoring of traffic signal
operations at all project intersections. The primary goal of this
project is to deploy new intelligent transportation system (ITS)
equipment and communication infrastructure to support the management of
the cities’ transportation network, 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 OCTA’s goal of improving the safety and
mobility of road users by embarking on this traffic signal
synchronization project,” said Scott Carlson, vice president and
assistant general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “This
initiative represents the continued expansion of Iteris’ traffic signal
coordination services, as well as our intersection-as-a-service
offering, across the West Coast and will ultimately help to increase the
value and effectiveness of the region’s existing transportation
infrastructure, while also improving air quality and reducing fuel

Iteris expects to commence the traffic signal coordination and ITS
design project immediately.
