Santa Ana, Calif. — Iteris, Inc. was awarded Orange County’s first Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) project. The $2.6 million on-call contract focuses on improving mobility in the heavily congested Platinum Triangle.
This initial ICM project will integrate freeway and arterial operations along the I-5, SR-55 and SR-91 freeways to improve mobility in Orange County. The project will also leverage system components planned for the I-210 Connector Corridor in Los Angeles, of which Iteris is a contributor. It is expected the project will establish a framework for future ICM projects in Orange County and the state.
“Safe and efficient mobility is at the core of intelligent transportation projects Iteris is involved with. Connecting and integrating transportation systems and modes is critical to achieving ever-improved safety and efficiency,” said Ramin Massoumi, general manager and senior vice president of Transportation Systems at Iteris. “This Integrated Corridor Management project underscores Orange County’s commitment to invest in its transportation infrastructure, ensuring smarter mobility for its vibrant economy.”
The Platinum Triangle confluence of corridors ranked as having the highest vehicle hours of delay in 2012, along with the highest concentration of special events. The special event locations include Disneyland Resort and Theme Park, Angels Stadium, Honda Center, and Anaheim Convention Center.
Iteris is active in many ICM projects throughout the country through the development of smarter mobility solutions, from a multimodal app in San Diego to design and integration services in the San Francisco Bay Area and Virginia. ICM projects promote balance among transportation mode options that include auto, transit, bus and bicycle, making real-time actionable information readily available for transportation engineers and the traveling public alike. These projects are an integral part of connecting communities and the adoption of smart city solutions.
Iteris’ Transportation group provides advanced design, real-time data and analytics, and actionable informatics to safely improve mobility within communities and ready the roadways for connected/autonomous vehicles in smart cities.
