U.S. Traffic Corporation announced that the company has been awarded a procurement contract by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC-DOT). This contract will provide advanced solid state traffic control devices to expand system upgrades across the city of New York. The agreement calls for U.S. Traffic to supply traffic control cabinets, intersection signal controllers, as well as related software and hardware over the next several years to replace aging electromechanical controller systems throughout the city.
Rolando Garcia, chief operations officer for the Signal Group, discussing the companies' continued growth, said, "We are very pleased to have this opportunity to continue our partnership with New York City; affirming our commitment to offer the best, most sustainable solutions in traffic technologies."
The bid requirement and scope of this multi-year project focuses on the balance of New York City's more than 12,000 signalized intersections. U.S. Traffic will provide equipment and software that will be compatible with existing VTCS operation, existing ASTC equipment provided by U.S. Traffic on previous procurement contracts, and also the National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP).
New York City's original Phase I and Phase II traffic control procurement contracts were also awarded to U.S. Traffic. The company has already provided more than 8,900 controller cabinets from 2001 through 2010. The New York City Department of Transportation awarded U.S. Traffic the Phase III contract based on its previous performance in delivering traffic control technology, and on its demonstrated responsiveness in meeting NYC-DOT technical requirements.
